Ampersand Cafe is the type of place that makes you wish you were the kind of person who had their morning coffee on the beach. That’s because it’s a coffee shop on the beach. It’s located on Alki right by the water, and while it’s not much on the inside, there’s plenty of outdoor seating. Grab a chair, look at the water while sipping your latte, and you’ve done it. You’ve become the kind of person who has their morning coffee on the beach.
