wandering the 'hoods

This was seen in the Wallingford neighborhood. I was up there to see the movie Doubt. This movie provided some very good discussion with my friend while driving to our next destination.

We drove to the Seward Park neighborhood next to do some food shopping at the PCC, but first we had coffee at Cafe Vita. I loved this place. The barista was very nice and he was playing Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley. It really fit the mood with the darkness and rain pouring down outside.

Cool pics! I really like the lattes.

So, what did you think of Doubt?

Thanks! They were very good as well as photogenic. I could not type everything I think about that movie here!

The serve Cafe Vita coffee at the Tyler Street coffeehouse in Port Townsend. I'll have to check out the place in Seward Park. Thanks for the tip!

I posted a photo of "Henry" painting the back side of the Orange Splot Gallery in Fremont back in July ... nice guy, he is.

Mmmm...coffeeee...and neato pics!

Hey Chuck, if you like Cafe Vita, there are four locations in Seattle, the original being on Lower Queen Anne Hill near the Seattle Center and the EMP. Here's their website for more info on all things Cafe Vita, including locations, history, pictures and merchandise for mail order:

I used to live right next door to one of their roasteries when it was in Belltown on 5th Ave...aaahhhh, what a nice thing to smell in the morning!!

Love how they create designs in the froth. My one and only vice I do to excesses, coffee! Typically 8 to 10 cups a day.

I usually have my travel mug fiulled with 2, (sometimes 3), shots of espresso, then topped off with dark roast coffee. Other times, it's an extra shot of espresso in my capucino.

dy: Thanks! Their coffee is mighty good.

dusty: It's really my only vice too, though I don't drink as much as you!!
