As you know, Seattle is coffee haven, and when the sky is grey and there is work to be done the best way to pass the time is holed up in a comfy cafe with a heavenly mug of a local roast. I just moved into the Ballard/Phinney Ridge neighborhood and have quickly fallen in love with the Ridgeback Cafe on the corner of 65th and 4th.
Between the organic mid-century modern interior, incredible food and delicious coffee (they serve Stumptown Coffee) this place is perfect for weekend brunch with the girls (they have PINT size mimosas!) or a late afternoon cram session. The minimal yet ecclectic decor is a perfect mash-up of industrial chic and thrift store jewels in a sunny warm palette...Enjoy!
