Freemont Coffee Company

459 North 36th Street
Seattle, WA 98103

Review -

This is my favorite spot in Freemont. Located in a old crusty looking house, the Coffee Company thrives by providing not only good coffee, but a good place to study. There are about 3-4 tables in each room and art decorating each room like it would your own home. The coffee is great and the food is very good also. I love this place, but would not recommend it for a social meeting place. The intimacy of each room makes it so that you can be heard clearly pretty much anywhere in the house. It seems most of the time people are busy working and no one really goes there to socialize. If you are looking to bury your face in a laptop or book with some great coffee in Freemont, this is your spot!

C & P Coffee

This is a pretty funky place. It is a little hidden in the madness of California Ave, but is a pretty good spot for the coffee aficionado. It’s in a small old house. They layout is very interesting and you can pretty much hear everyones conversation. If you don’t want coffee they do have a beer and wine to enjoy which makes it a nice place to meet up. They have a La Marzocco machine and pour a pretty decent shot. Is the best place closest to the Fauntleroy Junction and will not disappoint.

What a cool spot in the middle of litterally nowhere. Sitting in it’s own world off the side of the highway this place is great. It has blown up over the last few years, but the quality has not diminished. They have a small La Marzoca and use a Caffe Vita bean. They make good coffee and have amazing baked goods. A little overpriced, but you are in the middle of nothingness. Has some great seating and even outside seating to enjoy the 300 days of sunshine Cashmere gets. A must stop for a snack and some great coffee.

The Living Room Coffeehouse

Posted on 08 October 2012 by mattbaker

1018 Rosecrans Street,
San Diego, CA

Review -

I think this might be a chain in San Diego, so hopefully this review does not apply to all. The one I stopped at was located in an old house and seemed to be the college student haven. I am not sure why there were so many kids there considering the coffee was so bad. It would have been better if Michael J. Fox made it. They had a decent machine (Simonnelli,) but the barista’s would have been better labeling cans on a factory belt because they really showed no interest in making a good cup of coffee. It being in a house makes it a interesting place, but bad coffee and the smell of ax body spray makes me want to take my business somewhere else.

Magpies Bakery

Valdez, AK 99686

Review -

A interesting little place that also is a bakery. Although they were all out of baked goods when I arrived, the atmosphere was cool. Hard to not overhear every conversation in the place, but since it is in the living room of an old house, I think that is the point. Everyone seemed to know each other and are very friendly to strangers. The coffee was ok and nothing to rave about, but a cool place to visit none the less.
