20 Ounce Bliss

30 Jul

Seattle is known for a number of things. Coffee, for example. Funny thing is that when you get there, the coffee shops that are not mere Starbucks blueprints are few and far between. Now, I am not saying Starbucks doesn’t have its place. You know, skinny iced latte, lemon pound cake and all that to go, please. But: Starbucks IS NOT breakfast. Breakfast is a stream of endless espresso in wonderfully frothy milk, crispy toast with cinnamon swirls, comfort, a good book, friendly people, some conversation and the right music playing in the background. Of course, all this must come with an “as long as you want”-attitude.

As luck may have it, I stumbled across the perfect spot during my last Seattle adventure. The Bedlam. it’s coffee, tea, toast, all wrapped up in wonderfully unintentional interior design (the 7 Year Bitch showcase poster on the back wall almost makes me reverent…).

Plus: the first time I had breakfast there, I got Them Crooked Vultures with my 20 Ounce Latte. I guess Bedlam really knows how to win a girl over.
