I feel like I'm always neglecting my blog and I feel absolutely terrible. Nonetheless, here is a long overdue post on my trip to Seattle this past summer. The moment I landed, I fell in love with this city. There's something so special about it that I can't quite put my finger on. Maybe it's because the weather was perfect while I was there (save for a gloomy day in the middle of my stay), but everything just felt right. The food was delicious, the coffee was amazing, and the people were so beautiful! I may just have left a little piece of my heart out there. Here are some photos from my trip, hope you enjoy!!
This is Willi, a baristo that I met at Victorla. This guy is super friendly and is obviously passionate about what he does. He also made me a mean gibraltar.
I caught this guy celebrating the lack of a line at Paseo, a rare occasion.
The holy grail of sandwiches, Paseo's Caribbean Roast.
This thing is amazing and lived up to all the hype (everyone and their mother told me I had to try it) and then some. It's also quite a disaster to handle and quickly turns into a fork and knifer. You can't tell too well in the photo, but my vision was clouded by grease.
I got a chance to see Shane and Shane play while I was there!
Another gem, Uneeda Burger.
I had forgotten that burgers could be exceptionally delicious. Then I met Uneeda Burger and was reminded that burgers can indeed be great.
After striking up conversation with Willi at Victorla, he gave me a list of coffee spots to check out. Milstead & Co. was among them.
Yep, another fantastic spot that totally fits the hipster coffee-camera lover in me.
A fine cup of Aeropressed Bows and Arrows Guatamela Finca El Tambor to end the post.
Goodbye, Seattle! Until next time.
