Seattle Weekly's Description
This U District cafe is collegiate, but not Animal House collegiate. Its pea-green walls and mismatched furniture set the scene for a thriving community of thinkers, talkers, and typers. Caffeinated intellectuals expound passionately on biochemistry or Nietzsche over orange-poppyseed bread. Rustic tomato-basil soup and crispy grilled-cheese sandwiches on sourdough provide sustenance for conversational exertion, while grad students quench the smoke pouring from their brains with glasses of Chardonnay.
Tips from foursquare
Perfect place to hang out with a cup of coffee and some really good friends. Lots of students!
Best espresso on the Ave. Hands down.
Make sure the internet's working before you drop cash on a drink
Happy hour from 4-6 p.m. and from 9 p.m.-close. $1 off draft beer. Good beer choices on tap.
More of a socializing than studying environment. Can be difficult to find available seats. Get the Cardamom Cake and Citrus Chai.
