A visit to Olympia Coffee


A Mocha with Oat Milk from Olympia Coffee in Columbia City, Seattle. 

What to do on a rainy day in Seattle? Go grab a cup of coffee at a local spot! Yeah, Starbucks is easy and you know just what to expect. But sometimes, it feels more adventurous to try a "new to you" place, and to support a local business. So, I went to Columbia City, a neighborhood close to mine, to check out Olympia Coffee. Funnily enough, it used to be a Starbucks. It looks way cooler now though. Olympia Coffee is from Olympia, WA and has three stores there, one in Tacoma, and two in Seattle. Their first store opened in Olympia in 2007. They're proud of their coffee and they have a rich history you can read about here

I chose a medium Mocha with Oat Milk. They also sell pastries like croissants and muffins, and cookies from Lowrider Cookie Company. My sons each chose a Birthday Cake cookie because they love the sprinkles. I really enjoyed my mocha. It wasn't overly sweet and reminded me of a dark chocolate bar. Perfect for a rainy weekend afternoon!
