Great Seattle Coffee Spots for Kids
Bringing your children along with you to enjoy great coffee doesn’t have to be a drag. In fact, it can be a fun adventure! Most cafes are really good about having items on their menu for children and some even have a dedicated area for kids to hang out. Some of coffee spots are also in the perfect location to enjoy the surroundings that are ideal for children. Below is an “evolving list” of a few coffee spots that I like, but you can help add to this list by taking the poll below or commenting!
