Seattle adventures, life, home, and coffee—in no particular order
Doodle and I met X at the Montlake Fuel after morning meetings in Redmond. We shoved two tables together and worked and talked away over Café Vita-roasted coffee and High 5 Pie (apple for X, cherry almond pour moi). Pretty nice way to start the week, if you ask me.
The Montlake café is spacious and full of natural light, and it’s decorated judiciously with a rotating display of local art. Seating options consist of round four-person tables and square two-person tables in the center of the café and arm chairs and bar seating along the front windows. Our remote-work party was digging the floor outlets.
Fuel is pretty great. Location is convenient, coffee is good, and the space is perfect for working. The space didn’t have the little je ne sais quoi to move me from “like” to “LOVE,” but it’s a solid neighborhood coffee shop. Plus, it piqued my interest in the new Capital Hill High 5 location.
We’ve got an ambitious and Vita-filled week on the books…
