It’s a rare event to come across the delightful aroma of ground coffee beans as you hear coffee cups tapping against their plates and the rhythmic hum of chitchat lingering from a coffee shop. Especially in Seattle.
So when that coffee shop is tucked in the corner, seated high above the biggest market downtown, you start to think there is more to this place than the coffee alone.
If you live in a mile radius of Pike Place Market, you also know this coffee shop has spent a lot of money on marketing alone. Receiving their beautiful booklet in the mail felt like an event. Despite the little text it contained (they have an excellent designer), I did know I was invited to taste the premier new coffee, only to Seattle. Promptly I made my reservation.
Pretentious, a bit. But c’mon, you know you kind of like it. I mean really why would anyone want to make a reservation to a coffee shop? Well, when everything - yes everything - on their menu is free, they need to plan accordingly.
I apologize for this tardy announcement, as there are only 8 more days to take them up on their offer. Until October 1st, enjoy amazing coffee and in-house baked goods (GF options available), on them. No need to make a reservation come October, but you’ll also have to pay.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot at this novel destination. Take advantage of the space created to explore conversations; sit, relax, and sip slowly in this aesthetically pleasing, beyond comfortable space. I highly suggest the 3-5pm slot for the afternoon light that magically streams through the windows and basks the plush leather couches with a golden glow.
Welcome to Seattle Storyville.
