I work in Edmonds, so believe me when I say I have slurped down every cup of coffee available in Edmonds. Walnut Street Coffee is the newest edition to the coffee-soaked Edmonds and it's also the best. Here's how it breaks down: Waterfront - friendly staff, but not striking coffee; Zu Cafe - staff often slow and bewildered, coffee tastes too strong and just plain bad, great upstairs seating, fantastic pastries; Starbucks - why? when there's so much more; Tully's - a close second, accepts AAA card for discount; Edmonds Bakery - great SBC drip and cheap but no fancy stuff; Walnut - BEST. There it is. Now go there!
