we just moved to downtown edmonds and found the most amazing espresso bar. talk about quintessential! they use stumptown coffee (from portland), have ONLY ORGANIC milk, amazing organic chocolate, french pastries and whole leaf teas (12 kinds!). they also have free wifi and a gorgeous garden area in the back (especially when it gets warmer!). supposedly they're getting music on the weekends when they stay open later.
we come here at least 2-3x/wk and love the ambience, a very knowledgeable staff, and the food's not bad either although limited. they just started carrying bagels from bagel oasis (which was close to our old neighborhood) so we're really happy about our move to edmonds.
if you love amazing coffee, but haven't been, you should check it out
