003 - Esco Gelato

20 October 2012

Rating: chilly, John Mayer, Matchbox Twenty, one painting on wall for $1200

I’ve given up this judgment system. My experience with Escondido’s cafes is everything but interesting. I’ve mostly only experienced struggling owners who do not seem to have much enthusiasm for coffee. Olga Diaz, who is a city council member, used to own this cafe (when it was the Blue Mug), and it seemed favorable with young folks. This is also when Mingeis International Museum’s satellite museum-let was around the corner. Since then, I’ve just lost hope for a lot of things. I’m sorry, I just can’t believe Linkin Park is playing in this cafe.
