Zoka has the highest quality coffee so it was a pleasure to find this place. The service was inattentive. But the location in downtown Kirkland was killer. Not a lot of people at 7 pm on Monday night. Because of the high glass windows, the cafe has a metro feel. So I found a plush chair, pulled up my laptop... More

guess everyone has their different taste of coffee. My wife like it strong and a little bit sour, while I prefer it medium and smooth. So far, we both satisfied with the ones Zoka provided. I like Zoka's environment. The big bright window, the contemporary decoration style, and that cool big clock on the wall. The staff work there is... More

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,... 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.
