Seattle Central Grind is a great local, independent coffee shop. It is the kind of place where the owner always remembers you and your favorite drink. Even if I don't stop by in the morning, I get a friendly wave from Samuel, the owner, when I walk by with my dog. Samuel is also an artist and has his paintings for sale on the wall. I will admit it is not the absolute best cuppa joe I've ever consumed, but there is something to be said about supporting one of the few remaining African American owned businesses in the CD. Give 'em a try.
