Au Zinc

Ah, indeed…it seems you’ve only got a moment or two.  Very well.  

We’ll make sure you enjoy the time-honored tradition of taking your coffee Au Zinc—at the (often zinc-topped) bar where you’ll probably have to stand, but since you’ll be leaving soon, that’s fine.  And, a tip to the weary traveler: A few cafes (like ours) offer bar stools, making the quick espresso moment briefly restful at the well-chosen venue.
