Neighborhood: Kensington

Worth visiting just to defy the Seattle mega chain star bucking next door, this no-frills but comfortable cafe offers an excellent assortment of hot caffeine, as well as a huge selection of loose teas. There's a good selection of grilled sandwiches and pastries for light bites as well as some hearty breakfast specials. People not big on coffee are welcome too with a fine selection of beers, wine and cocktails. On sunny days, the few tables outside are filled with the neighborhood's trend-conscious latte sippers, newspaper readers, dog walkers and crowd watchers. With the Plaza Theatre just across the street, this is a perfect spot for post-movie coffee and conversation.
