Seattle Weekly's Description
You are in your early 20s, working as a barista. You may ask yourself, "How did I get here? Is this my beautiful life?" Zach Bolotin decided he could do better, and opened this business. Now he's not just a barista - he's the store's owner, with an eye toward doing coffee better than slam-packed competitors on the Hill. The minimalist space has a friendly vibe, serving beans sourced from Herkimer Coffee on Phinney Ridge. There is space to work (with free wi-fi) or socialize, and the primary drawing card of the place is Bolotin himself, the operation's cute, funny and outgoing frontman, barista and head dishwasher. Beyond the beans, Porchlight offers a small selection of coffee-friendly cookies and bites.
Tips from foursquare
The Babe Tabe is the best tabe.
Always! The best cup o' joe in the city. #uberapproved
nicer, better, less tedious than stumptown.
The owner makes a mean Americano and that's enough for me. Doesn't hurt that there is free wifi and good music to go around too!
Owmer is really nice and the coffee is awesome! Also, shop next door is pretty fabulous too!
