Been working hard with a handful of volunteers to revitalize the space of Q Cafe. We have a very limited budget but I think folks are going to be pleased with the new kids’ room, counter level work corner, benches, and more desks for laptops users and students, etc. We’re only spending two weeks on the remodel so next week will be crunch time as we reopen the cafe on Monday, January 14.
But it’s not just the space. We’re working on the quality of the “product”. We want it to be a great community cafe where we feature great coffee and tea, free WiFi, an art gallery, and an all ages live music venue.
Zoka is enjoyed by many here in Seattle and was recently named 2008 Roaster of the Year by Roast Magazine. Stumptown hails from Portland and are relatively new to the Seattle market but are making ripples with their “direct trade” practice as attested by the article in the NY Times.
While we’re at it, I’d love to hear your answer to this question: Who’s your favorite coffee roaster?
