Part 2! Here we have 5 more coffee shops located in Seattle.
Cascade Coffee WorksLocation: South Lake Union. This place is really cute and aesthetically pleasing, but I honestly didn’t like this one. This coffee shop is probably the only one I didn’t like in Seattle, but maybe it was just because the drink I got wasn’t good. I got a cassava latte, since I’d never had that before. I’m not sure if this is related, but it gave me headache and I had bad headaches for the following few days/weeks :(
Herkimer CoffeeThis place has a few outlets around Seattle, but I went to the one in South Lake Union. The coffee shop is fairly small and has two floors. I got a drip coffee here, and I thought it was pretty good! I was considering buying some of their beans, but I ended up deciding against it since I don’t actually own a coffee bean grinder or a V60 or anything.
Fremont CoffeeLocation: Fremont. This place also has really cute latte art – I got a cat! I was studying here for a bit, and I think it’s a pretty nice place to hang out. The layout might be a bit weird since it was converted from an old house, but I don’t think it’s too off-putting. I did notice that the people before me didn’t get special latte art (just the standard rosettas), but maybe the barista could sense I was here for the latte art :P I’m super happy I got a cute drink though!
Overall, I’d say my favorite coffee drink in the Seattle area was the lavender mocha from Zoka Coffee Roasters (from Part 1 of this post!). I would definitely recommend going to Moore Coffee Shop for the waffles, and Moore and Fremont Coffee for the latte art. Kakao is also great for mochas, and I really enjoyed going to Cafe An’Clair for their bulgogi sandwich and the orchid breve. Herkimer also has great drip coffee. One place I wanted to check out, but didn’t have the chance to, was Slate Coffee Roasters. I’ll just have to wait till next time!
Now, based on the title you may be wondering what kind of story this will be. As you will soon find out, it’s a story of adventure born out of the pure, dark chaos that fills the minds of sleep deprived Caltech undergrads.
I’m starting a new miniseries on the blog – Film Club! Each episode, I’ll share a short clip from a popular piece of media, and then completely dissect and overanalyze it, because let’s face it, I’m doing it in my head already anyway. You say “buzzkill.” I say “science.” We’ll kick things off with a clip from Gravity Falls I discussed a bit in my previous post: Season 2 Episode 12, A Tale of Two Stans. If somehow you haven’t watched this show yet (?!)… spoilers incoming!
It’s crazy to think that I began applying to college almost three years ago. I still remember spending hours looking at college websites, admissions blogs and reddit pages to try to get a sense of what college is ACTUALLY like. To help you get through these stressful times, here are a few tips that I wish I had listened to. Hopefully, these will ease your worries and maybe even make the process more enjoyable!?
