Cafe Suisse

How I heard of this place: I’ve walked by it a dozen times, and little bearing did the A-frame sandwich board outside have on my daily goings-on.

Until my husband came home with a card for a free espresso beverage.

I was certainly up for a visit, and boy, do I wish I had gone years ago!

and some sandwiches for dining in the store or to take away.

What I ordered: A Swiss Mocha, “Seattle’s best” (and maybe only)!

What I loved: The dark, bitterness of the chocolate used, the creamy, velvety, smoothness of the milk accompanying the boldness of Victrola Coffee.

Why I loved it: Quaint, kitsch, cluttered and beautiful in every European way you could want.
