This place is truly phenominal, as is the free trade, fresh coffee. I did not feel rushed, as in some other coffee places, and even though the "sit around space" is not as "cool" as others, it is relaxing and not noisy. I've been to this shop so many times, and they always have a new coffee bean they've roasted right there. The baristas are well informed and know exactly which coffee to recommend based on my description of what I am looking for. I have never been disappointed. All those other reviews are years old. This shop is definitely worth experiencing now!
A nice stroll on a Saturday on greenwood laned us here. Its a writers haven with backrooms and a deck. Its a little girls fantasy with a case of daily handmade chicolate who's ingredients take chocolate to a new standard. chocolate drinks. chocolate smells that seduces the strongest of us. local imagination at its finest. someone go there and mail me some! post office across the street! best book store in town with open mics and readingd across the street.
Home of the Velvet Foam...need I say more? Okay, I will anyway. Lower Queen Anne original location has been my favorite coffee spot since it was a narrow hole in the wall...before it expanded to a double-front space...and years before there were any other locations anywhere. Perfect pull every time, luscious foam. And where else in this city can I get a Cafe Generra with a real orange peel, dark chocolate & real whip cream?
