Despite rumors about the Seattle Freeze…
Fine. It partially exists, though most people in Seattle are friendly. They greet, chit chat, and help strangers in need–characters that could attribute to Mosaic’s success. Or perhaps it’s the cafe’s tasty comestibles and warm atmosphere? Or all of the above? Our strongest recollection of Mosaic, however, branded the community coffee house as one of the most un-frozen joints in town.
Hats off to friendly baristas who melted the Seattle Freeze!
Pastries and coffee constitute more snack than brunch.
But nitpicking exhibits poor manners, so let’s not. Our baked goods replaced breakfast and lunch anyway–buttery almond croissant, moist blueberry muffin and smokey Americano. Unreal that such fresh, indulgent edibles are daily donations from Sodo’s Little Rae’s Bakery.
Suggested prices display above the counter.
Contribute what you want. Profit pays for those who can’t.
The spacious basement that Mosaic operates in, under Wallingford’s First Church of Nazarene, provides comfort and ambiance that cater especially to homeless and single mothers: couches for rest, board games for entertainment, and a play room full of toddler-aged toys for moms to enjoy a break.
Visitors park for free in church parking lot.
Look for the sign. Neighborhood parking works too.
Wallingford resides West of I5 along 45th, just a few miles from the University of Washington. A bustling yet quaint neighborhood. You’ll enjoy exploring the main strip.
