Stoke Harvester offers SUP rentals, and guided tours of the Puget Sound, and Lake Washington. Experience the water like never before.

Awards and Acclaim
While You’re Waiting: Salsa music and other live Latin performances set the tone in this teeny, lively cafe. Don’t be surprised to see tables pushed aside to create a dance floor—and be ready for a server, bartender, or other friendly staff member to ask you to join them.
Caipirinha: a Brazilian cocktail made with the sugarcane-based spirit cachaca and lime juice.
Plantain: very popular in Caribbean dishes, these starchy fruits are a slightly larger cousin of the banana and must be cooked before serving.
Tostones: fried slices of unripe plantain; a common side dish in Latin America.
