It’s time for a coffee break!

I wish it were intravenously. Also, I love how that cartoon looks like me! Well, as much as a stick figure can look like someone. (Can anyone let me know the source? A friend sent it along and I’d like to give proper attribution to the artist).

Anyway, I figure instead of just telling you how I’m nursing a mocha, I’d share with you my favorite Seattle coffee spots around the city. Seriously though, this city really is the country’s coffee capital, there is no disputing it! Every cup I drink just makes me dream about opening a shop someday myself. Who knows, maybe one day, I’ll be a franchise owner! Although, there’s something to be said about cozying up at home around a hot mug after pouring your own coffee in the kitchen using a good old coffee maker.

1. Bauhaus (Capitol Hill): This is definitely number one. I almost always get mochas, and they make the best. They have the perfect creamy texture, a delicious coffee taste, and not an overwhelming amount of chocolate. I love working and blogging there, since it’s the coziest environment with great music (and is conveniently by my apartment). Living in Seattle and the surrounding areas, you’ll come to know your local coffee spots very intimately. I have some friends who have just moved into Hyde Square luxury apartments in Bellvue and they’ve scoped out their local haunts very quickly. Speaking of their apartments, I am rather jealous as the contemporary development looks quite stunning from what they’ve shown me.

2. Cafe Vita (Fremont): Also delicious and cozy. One of their shops is conveniently by my boyfriend’s place (though they have more around the city), so that’s where I currently refueled:

3. Cafe Solstice (U District): When I want good coffee while at work, this is my go-to place. I’d go there more frequently but I’m usually too lazy to walk up the Ave, so I settle for the crappy coffee that I can conveniently get in the cafe within my building. I wish our building had this coffee company as our provider. I did a lot of General Exam studying in here.

4. The Muddy Cup (Wallingford): I used to live right by this place, and spent a good chunk of last year’s Blogathon there. I love how cozy it is, and the owner is super nice. My favorite thing to get there is their Endless Iced Coffee – the ice cubes are made of coffee, so it really does last forever as it melts!

If you’re a Seattleite, what’s your go-to coffee place?
