Something you may not know about me…I have detested coffee my whole adult life. Sounds crazy…in my degree (Computer Science), kids were drinking coffee, sodas, or energy drinks, not me! I refused…well coffee because I didn’t like the flavor, soda because I’m not a huge soda drinker, and energy drinks because I’m pretty sure the stuff that is in them probably isn’t safe for your body.
As I’ve gotten older I have realized that it wasn’t coffee that I disliked so much as it is Starbucks coffee that I hate. I know…completely blasphemous, I’m a Seattle girl, yet I hate Starbucks. Yup, that’s my thing. That being said, I have since gotten over myself and enjoy coffee, just not from Starbucks.
On Monday I took a stroll down 7th and Olive and found this adorable coffee shop attached to an office building, Anchorhead Coffee Co.
The thing about coffee shops in Seattle (if they aren’t a drive thru) they are geared towards creating a relaxing environment to sit and stay and Anchorhead was no exception.
They do serve a light breakfast/lunch menu so you could eat there, but what I chose to get was their nitro cold brew with chocolate milk, and yes, it was quite delicious.
|Vibe:||Large wrap around patio with plenty of tables if you are looking to sit outside. The vibe itself was very chill.|
|Cleanliness:||Their station looked clean and the tables I saw were clean. They also wiped down after every drink.|
|Service:||Service is hard to judge at coffee places because I feel like so much depends on how busy they are, so I hold judgment on service until I go again.|
|Flavor:||The coffee mixed with the chocolate milk was divine! It had the right amount of bitter from the coffee and sweetness from the chocolate milk without being too overpowering.|
|Is it worth it:||For the drink, yes! I want to try their pistachio matcha latte next time.|
