We’ve been exploring Seattle’s coffee shops since we’ve arrived and I feel like we’ve barely skimmed the surface of what it has to offer! I will say though, I have not found a cup of coffee that tops my favorite place from home – Gray Owl Coffee in Norman, OK. When it comes to a simple cup of joe, their individually french-pressed cups can’t be beat. Just sayin’.
The photo above is from a place we really enjoy called Urban Coffee Lounge. They also have a wine menu and some beers on tap. They host live music there every so often also.
They are known for their “Top Shelf Mocha” – it’s what I ordered. I don’t typically like mochas because they’re too sweet, but this one wasn’t. It was just right.
Tyrel enjoyed his black. His coffee is always so dark I feel like I’m chewing on a piece of charcoal. Maybe it’s a guy thing.
I think Seattle’s coffee consumption has a lot to do with the weather. Imagine how lazy and chill you feel on rainy days – you need a caffeinated kick in the pants to jump start your productivity. Seattle isn’t as rainy and gloomy as people make it out to be, but having a nice cup of coffee to keep you going is always nice.
…and that’s just a photo I took on my phone on our way home. No relevance whatsoever. I just thought it was cool.
