Coffee Shop: Kaffeeklatsch  

This month’s coffee shop is Kaffeeklatsch.  To start with, it smells amazing! Every morning they bake from scratch their own breads and pastries in the bakery in the corner of the shop. This leaves the delightful aroma of warm toasted breads permeating the whole establishment. Located right on Lake City Way, when the doors are open there is a some white noise from the cars passing by, however parking is easy if you circle around the block since there is a large parking lot by the back entrance.

The space inside is divided into a seating area with small tables, and on the other side of the café is a kids corner with toys and books. Kaffeeklastch serves up the local coffee roaster True North Coffee to compliment their selection of Bavarian baked goods. Beyond being a cozy place to grab a coffee and gather with friends, at the end of the day Kaffeeklasch helps an assortment of local community establishments by donating all of their unsold baked goods.

Coffee Shop: Anchored Ship Coffee Bar

Anchored Coffee I was joined for this month’s coffee shop exploration by my sweet nephew, Gus. Anchored Ship Coffee Bar is located on Ballard Avenue, right in the heart of downtown Ballard and used to be a tiny hole in the wall, so from the outside it has a small street presence. However, once you go in it features two distinct seating areas: one in a loft above the coffee bar and another raised seating area at the back of the shop.

A recent remodel provided these new interior spaces, and many use them for a go-to coffee and laptop work spot- as well as a casual catch up spot for old friends. Anchored Ship is proud to serve Counter Culture espresso beans, available in a delightful variety of roasts (and are also sold as whole bean if you want to take some home with you). It’s signature drink is the lavender chai and what caught my eye was their unique cardamom syrup- which had a light flavor without being overly sweet.
