I'm on the hunt for some cafe options - places to hang out, have a coffee or two, read a book or do a bit of writing, people watching, that sort of thing. I love Oddfellows in Capitol Hill, but I've already been there several times and I feel like I need to diversify. Also, Oddfellows is great for working but the chairs are less so for sitting back with a book.
Downtown, Queen Anne, Belltown, Pioneer Square, Capitol Hill - any of these areas will be good.
Though I tend to prefer my coffee served by someone with an ironic moustache, it doesn't have to be the absolute best in the city (passable to good, yes). Atmosphere, light, comfort, wifi, quiet-ish ambience...you get the idea. Cheers!
