My favorite coffee shop at the U-district, it's right on 45th and 13th, close to the UW. Everything I tried there has been fantastic so far, both chai and coffee there is awesome. The list of chai kinds that they offer is ridiculously long, every time I go there I try something new and haven't been disappointed so far. Free wifi is a bonus. The only problem with this place is parking - street parking can be a hustle.
Bottom line: definitely must-checkout when in U-district!
This coffee house has won citysearch's best coffee for three years! Located on 45th and 13th free parking is hard to find, but if you are in the U-District this place is not to be missed. Every 16oz. coffee drink comes with 4 shots of espresso (if you can handle it) and their daunting list of chai is enough to dazzle anybody. I can hardly ever choose between their coffee and their chai either is a win.
If you are lost, just ask one of their excellent baristas what you are wanting flavor wise and they will help narrow it down.
Pros: Great Chai and Coffee, free wifi, live bands friday nights
Cons: the amount of caffeine in your system, they no longer do coffee card (buy 9 get on free)
