Mr West Cafe Bar

Sometimes, when you ride the bus in Seattle, you may be late, so you learn to leave earlier but then you are too early for your appointment… It happens! So where to go at 8am in the morning in the Denny Triangle? MR WEST!

This place is very nice and spacious. I like the bright lights and the plants all around. I felt very comfortable sitting there with plenty of nice photos to look at. Art is on sale if you are interested in buying one of the pieces.

This is another coffee shop that I will like to use as a substitute office!

One day I had a croissant that was so flaky and so good, that I asked the waiter if they were baked on site. I was not surprised to hear that they order them at Fuji Bakery! Another day I tried the savory yogurt. It was very original but tasty.

I am looking forward to summer time to enjoy the patio, if only there were less cranes and construction work in this area…

Ventoux Roasters

On this sunny Fall day, I discovered a place that I have to share with you:

A little neighborhood coffee place between Ravenna and University District. Delicious cappuccino in a laid back atmosphere, and cycling decor. Just in case you don’t know: Mont Ventoux is an iconic stage in the Tour de France.

Morsel,
(tasty) Biscuits and (good) Coffee

After a long run, I was cold and starving.  I needed a cup of good coffee and some good comfort food. It was a great day for a good biscuit.

I was around University District and went to Morsel, which I was not familiar with. Among the 3 sandwiches offered, I chose the Spanish Fly, a buttermilk biscuit with prosciutto, arugula, fried running egg, manchego, and pepper aioli.

The fresh baked biscuit was delicious and it was garnished with high-quality products.

The service is super friendly and people there really care about your opinion. So I told them that I really liked my “sammie”, as they called their sandwiches.
