One specialty of the house is signaled by the painted sign that hangs out front: In dripping white on black, it depicts a single coffee bean. The other featured attractions are sandwiches, like the zapiekanka, that acknowledge the owners' Eastern European roots.
Between slices of sourdough, my kielbaslaw ($10) married roasted sausage with onions, mayo, yellow mustard, and creamy slaw. Have at it quickly: Although the toasted bread held firm, even under all that slaw, the kielbasa would have been better if I hadn't stopped to chat, and let it cool off.
