One of the things that is difficult for me to understand is the lack of coffee shops in Seattle that are open LATE. Most coffee shops that I've come across close around 8 p.m. . . . 8 PM! What is THAT all about? Even in Austin, coffee shops stay open until 10 p.m. (at least from what I remember). There's even a Starbucks in Round Rock that's open 24 hours (drive through)! And up until recently, my neighborhood has been devoid of any truly local coffee shops—at least since I've lived here. But then my friend Kayleigh shared this gem with me . . . oh don't worry, you'll understand the pun in just a second . . . THE JEWEL BOX CAFE at Thornton Place. It's like 4 blocks from where I live, just across the street from the new movie theater.
This place is wonderful! They have great coffee, a swanky cool atmosphere, and they serve some yummy crepes and sandwiches. Ever since I found out about it, it's become my frequent hangout. I lovingly refer to it as Hogwarts cause the inside of it looks like something straight outta Harry Potter. It's so great that I now have a nice local coffee shop to come to. Today is just absolutely beautiful so I knew I HAD to come and get some yummy coffee and a sandwich. Here are some pics of my new hangout:
The bonus feature? IT'S OPEN LATE!
I have a feeling that many a script/song/project will be worked on here :D
