From the outside, Realfine Coffee looks like it could be a gas station. It’s small, it has a garage door, it’s smack in the middle of a random part of West Seattle, and it shares a building with a barbershop. But on the inside, it’s a well-designed little space perfect for escaping when you want to make some headway on your to-do list. The tables and shelves have plants on them, which gives the place a homey feel, and the coffee is great. Plus, if you’ve been working so hard that you’ve really let yourself go, you can always pop in next door for a haircut.
