Nice Light, Bad Pastries

3/4/19 Zoka Coffee

When I’m in the mood for cafĂ© sketching, my first choice is always Zoka Coffee in the Green Lake neighborhood. For a coffee shop, it’s huge, and large windows on two sides bring in a lovely natural light all morning. The warm wood interior, over-stuffed leather furniture, tables at various angles, and lots of victims staring at their devices make for an ideal indoor sketching location.

Unfortunately, I don’t like their pastries. The scones are so hard that they require a fork to penetrate, and the croissants leave a film on my palate, which leads me to believe they are made with shortening instead of butter.

Another first-world sketching problem rears its ugly head.

    1. The coffee's OK... but a sketcher can't live by coffee alone! ;-)

  3. It's nice that you have a good coffee shop for sketching.

    Things are looking up here in the South end. Just discovered a coffee shop just 3 or 4 miles away, at the bottom of my hill, that will serve me coffee the way I want it and has good breakfast items. I mean to go there more.

    And there is a new Ethiopian coffee shop... very large room and good pastries.
