Drinking the Cafe Nico at Espresso Vivace is a divine experience. The expertly made espresso, just four dainty ounces, carries an ethereal spritz of orange and vanilla syrups, and is buoyed by a splash of steamed half-and-half, topped with a shake of cinnamon, and finished with a fragrant garnish of orange peel. It’s a tiny cup of perfection, one that should be sipped slowly and with eyes closed.
