Compared to other coffee shops in the more congested areas of South Lake Union (like on Westlake), Fresh Flours is a pretty calm place to momentarily escape your office. The coffee’s pretty great by itself or alongside one of their tasty Japanese pastries, like green tea macarons or red bean bars. They also have a ton cozy sofas and tables in here that get plenty of sun pouring in from the windows.
