Great coffee, fun art, gets super crowded

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... read 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. Either you grab a laptop, a book or people watching, it is a perfect place. Staff are friendly and coffee is great. It will be even... More

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

Cool café to hang out until late. Great selection of teas, especially the lychee tea. Staff is friendly and the café has a great atmosphere. Nice location with close parking.

The coffee there is adequate. A little disorganized for ordering. All day there are many people spending their day at their computers. Nothing special for food.

Zoka has a nice atmosphere and I was told by my son the coffee is very good. Like most coffee houses, they don't seem to be capable of making a good hot chocolate. The place was packed on a Sunday afternoon.

service is decent, coffee is good. You can buy beans from them to make coffee at home and those are great (a little pricey but still good)

I have visited all location of Zoka and this is the best coffee that I have had in the US. All places are very nice and a good way to spend some time enjoying the coffee. When I leave Seattle I always take a bag of their coffee beans with me. Their pastries are OK but what makes the difference... More

This is a small coffee shop that has probably the best Blueberry Scone that I have had. It was a little short on blueberries but the scone itself was awesome. I would go back.
