Kitchy coffee shop

Is that the right word? This is a real bohemian type place, so if you don't fit the bill you may feel left out. I know, nobody should feel left out, right? But here you might.

This place is such a waste of money. The only thing it has going for it is location. $15 for a tea and tiny bowl of "chicken cesar salad" which was gross lettuce cores and 3 tiny slices of packaged chicken. Don't waste your money here.

Coffee drinks of all formulations are available, along with soups, sandwiches, pastries and home-baked items. If you fancy the house blend, they sell roasted coffee that you can take... more

Worth visiting just to defy the Seattle mega-chain star-bucking next door, this no-frills but comfortable cafe offers the regular assortment of hot caffeine, as well as a huge selection of loose teas. Grilled sandwiches and pastries are also available as well as a selection of beers and wine. On sunny days, the few tables outside are filled with the neighborhood\'s trend-conscious latte... more
