lol, I know! Western Ave., then moved to Pike Place Market. The exterior of the market shop is the original, but inside is that horrid "early 21st century" earthtone layout.
The heart is still there, however. They have different blends they make specifically for that location. A Verona from there tastes much different from elsewhere in the city.
My favorite coffee shop in Seattle is Uncle Elizabeth's, though. Or Stumptown.
