How I heard of this place: We often frequent the establishments around the corner (Pete’s Eggnest, Gorgeous George’s) and happened by Makeda numerous times without giving it a second glance. My sister, a big fan of Gilmore Girls asked me to stop by the Luke’s pop-up, which first brought me to Makeda.

Type of cuisine: We offer a wide range of custom roasted coffees, teas, beers and wine in our cozy café in the Greenwood neighborhood of Seattle. We hope you come visit us sometime soon!” A selection of pastries and baked goods from Macrina are available to patrons as well.

Ambiance: Long lines and many people shoved together inside made for some difficulty in getting a good sense of the space, but the inside certainly seemed bigger than what you see on the outside. One small bench outside the street facing window gives Gilmore Girls fans the opportunity for selfies on their way inside.

Indoors, an open entryway gives space for the lines building up out the door and up the block. Cozy couches sit up against the wall with coffee tables giving the air of a living room. Low ceilings, dim lighting and a bustling order counter give warmth to the cafe on this dreary, rainy Seattle autumn day.

What I ordered: The free drip coffee with simple syrup and half-n-half.

What I loved: Simple syrup on the condiment bar!

Why I loved it: Comfortable, cozy, and easily a place you would call a community cafe. We are definitely coming back.

Cost: Average
