Hard to find a seat

The idea of using a coffee shop for a work space is nothing new, but the first thing I noticed when I arrived at 11am on a Wednesday was that 99.9% of the seats were taken up by people appearing to be doing some sort of work. My friend and I wanted a place to chat and catch up. Instead,... read more

We love to sit in this pleasant place. There delaayut good (for America) coffee. Do not compare to Starbucks, where coffee is like a bucket.

We enjoyed the best coffee we have tasted in Seattle, even the best of the three states of the US we have visited. I can also recommend the Piroshky- white chocolate and cherry- it's another winner.

I like to stop in while on a walk with a friend, or to meet clients when I need an easy to find location. Staff is very nice, and this is a great place to people watch.

Zoka is a great spot to have an equally great coffee or tea. I had cappuccino and some banana bread. The atmosphere is pleasant with lots of people just doing their thing. Decent free wifi was also available.

This place gets so crowded it is difficult to get in and get some coffee some days. There are the usual artists, writers, and computer people sitting around at tables with coffees at their sides. If you can get space to sit at a table it is good place to soak up some creative energy. Otherwise, get your coffee to... More

This is my favorite cafe to spend a day. it is right at the corner which big glass windows. The sunlight can penetrate the windows make you feel you are sitting outdoor but warmth.

Coffee looks good! Lots of space to sit down. Easy atmosphere. Try the coconut slice- so yum! It's one of the more inviting cafes in kirkland

One of the best cappuccinos in town. Great coffee overall. Food choices are limited but that's not the focus. Ambience is very nice with lots of light. Big minus is the speed. Only one cash register and one barista. It may take a while to get your order
