Seattle's Best Coffee

On Thursday, Brad's second day of training, I hopped on a bus from downtown Bellevue to downtown Seattle. I have not ridden public transportation in a city in I can't even remember how many years! Of course I arrived before stores were open, so I began my Seattle's best coffee tour early in the day. I already had a Starbuck's latte for breakfast, so I decided to hang out at a Seattle's Best Coffee until Nordstrom and City Kitchen opened their doors.

I shopped downtown for a while, then walked to Pike's Place Market and browsed the flower stands and many produce and food venders.

At noon, I met Ann for lunch at Cafe Campagne. It was a warm, sunny day so we enjoyed our lunch outside on the patio. We chatted non-stop until Ann had to return to work. My Croque-Madame sandwich and salad were delicious.

After lunch, I needed to walk and it was a glorious day. I walked around the waterfront area and back streets near Pike's Place until I was ready for another break. This time I stopped for coffee at a coffee shop called Local Color. I had a big comfy easy chair to sit in and read for a while. I spent my last hour in the park. Tourists and locals were enjoying the beautiful warm day and the sea breeze.

Brad was done with his training by 3:30, and on his way to Seattle. While I waited for him, I had my last latte at Tully's coffee. I don't know if it was the outdoor seating, or the fact that I would get to explore more of Seattle soon with Brad, but it was a GREAT cup of coffee! BYOSL (Bring your own Sweet & Low).

Sounds like a great day (and great coffee!)

Barb Cabot:

Gosh you were really blessed with gorgeous weather. I think that's usual. I'm taking notes from your vacation. Mike goes up to Seattle for business and I think I may have to tag along one of these days. Love your travel reports here. Food and all look great. The city looks exciting.

I can't get over how blue the sky is in all of these photos. It looks like you were there during some of the best days (weatherwise) of the year!
