Quirky little cafe just near the Seattle Art Museum. It bills itself as a cafe/gallery, but it is more of a curiosity shop, with an eclectic display of the weird and the wonderful. The owner/barista was very friendly and the coffee was good. My espresso had a complex nutty flavour, and great mouthfeel - a treat after so many recent lacklustre espresso experiences. This place isn't slick, but if you're looking for a place to have coffee with heaps of character, then this'd be hard to beat.
