Cafe SolMar is a new cafe/restaurant in Ballard. It's on the ground floor of the newish SolMar condo building (a block from Market, 15th and the Post Office). The Cafe has great coffee (a tad on the spendy side but very good), baked goods, sandwiches, beer, wine, etc. Also free wifi. The few times I've been there to study they've been great - lots of light, outlets available, music not too loud and no other people angling for your table. I haven't tried their food, but the menu looks very good.
