Citizen Coffee is Another Gem in Seattle!

By
Industry Observer with Responsive Pest Control

Good afternoon! I'm writing from a dreary and rainy Seattle!

It's always heartening when a small and locally owned business appears to be getting it. Citizen Coffee in Seattle is Another Gem! For now, I live just up the way and it's fun to stop at Citizen Coffee when I have time.

One thing I've noticed about Citizen Coffee is their level of service is high. I am always asked how I am. Beyond that they have created a breakfast lunch and dinner menu that invites. Located in a non-descript older building on Taylor Ave. N in Seattle, Citizen Coffee offers a number of great breakfast items including crepes. I recently had their oatmeal and it was great.

Fast forward to lunch and dinner and you have your choice among hearty sandwiches or even a glass of wine or beer. The building itself has been transformed into a cozy eatery with seating upstairs or down. One thing I've noticed is they have carved out a neighborhood following and always seem to be busy.

I  think Citizen Coffee is a tranquil oasis from most corporate coffee shops (sorry Starbucks!). After all, who isn't rooting for the little guy! If you're in Seattle, give Citizen coffee a try. You won't be disappointed. Oh, by the way, their coffee is pretty darn good! Have a great day!

Paul - it's good to know that a local coffee shop can thrive in a city full of the 800 lb gorilla of coffee shops.

Courtney: it is a gem. I may be moving to the Eastside starting in April so I'll have to patronize them as much as I can in the meantime. If you ever want to grab a cup of joe on me there let me know. Thanks for commenting!

Jim: Yes. We all love the underdog! Take care.

Paul, Citizens Coffee should make you their ambassador. This will surely get them some business.
