Five Things to Know About Q Cafe
With a 25% discount for students and teachers, plus plenty of tables and outlets to turn the shop into a mini study hall, Q Cafe attracts plenty of guests looking to get a little work done while also getting a caffeine jolt. Here are some other things to know about the café:
- It's a nonprofit. Although affiliated with Quest Church, the coffee shop itself is a nonreligious community cafe that operates as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
- All the food and drinks are from local companies. Direct-trade coffee comes from Stumptown Coffee Roasters, gluten-free goods from Macrina Bakery, and sandwiches from Little Rae's Bakery and Mike's East Coast Sandwich.
- The drinks are literally works of art. A barista from Q Cafe represented Seattle in the 2014 Latte Art Smackdown.
- You can sit back and stay a while. The café offers free WiFi and there are plenty of outlets to plug in your computer or robot dog for a recharge. For a bit more privacy, you can book a conference room or the entire café for meetings and get-togethers.
- All ages of music lovers are welcome. Anyone who's old enough to appreciate espresso can come to the all-ages music shows, featuring local and national musicians such as Ingrid Michaelson and Run River North.
