New Thing #55: Mako Espresso Bar

As many of you may know, I have sort of an obsession with my local espesso bar Grinder. But a few months ago a new kid on the block (well, a new kid around the corner) opened up: Mako Espresso Bar. So when I pulled up infront of Grinder today, fingers crossed, and found out that they were closed for Good Friday I decided to test my luck and see if Mako was open. And it was.

Unfortunately though, my expectations seem to have been set a bit high. The staff was friendly and the place was generally nice inside but the coffee just wasn’t up to par. The latte was weak and a bit bitter and I think the milk might have been a little on the burnt side as well. At least it only cost $3.75.

Too bad. I guess I’ll just have to check into Grinder for the 144th time.
