    Der Kaffee war zwar gut, der Laden und der Barista eher nicht. Zum mitnehmen passt es aber. Sitzen geht sowieso nicht richtig.

    A good morning starts with an apricot cornetto ( Italian apricot croissant) and a Marrocchino ( shot of espresso, cocoa powder, and some milk froth ) in this little hole in the wall.

    Espresso is typical traditional Italian (bitter, a little burnt). Filled cornetto is good. Standing room only as befits an Italian espresso bar.

    An espresso and cornetto (Italian-style croissant: plain or stuffed with vanilla cream, chocolate or apricot) in the morning at the counter... a little bit of Rome in NYC.
