Really good coffee!

I can't say they're the best coffee in Seattle because I havn't tried all the coffee, but I bet they're close. So it's not a breakfast place, unless you're content with a scone, but I had to post them because one of the basics to a good breakfast is good coffee and they've got that down!

Doggies Welcome

If you don't mind sitting outside that is. They built a massive patio cover recently and there is a nice big fireplace to keep you warm. Though I can't say I've seen a fire in it...? I love this place. I always order the "Fetch" which is scrambled eggs over potato cakes with tomatoes, green onions, smoked apple bacon and cheddar cheese mmm mmm!! Their coffee is organic from the Portland Roasters, it's good. There's usually a wait, but walk inside, grab the mug of your choice, and fill er' up baby! Other menu options: good dog, bad dog, roll over... seriously Posted by Picasa

Seattle Time

Back to Seattle again. I can't resist. Ok, I admit I was drawn to this place because of the neon sign. It wasn't too bad. The food was good, they just didn't really have much of a selection. I'm kind of picky though. The prices were a wee bit on the high side, but it is Queen Anne's Hill after all. The music is loud, which is fun, if you're a morning person. The coffee was good and locally roasted, a definite plus!!

Update 7/09: I have been informed that Violet's is no longer open.
The corner cafe. This quaint little find is right on the corner of a little neighborhood. Good food, I like the creative selection. The coffee was good, I can't remember who the roaster was... very important! Fun atmosphere and very "decorated" staff. Seems to be a favorite, as there were plenty waiting. Bring your dog and sit outside!
