We’ve been meaning to go to Heart. We’ve driven past it countless times on our way to dinner at Ken’s Artisan Pizza or a movie date at the Laurelhurst. After being recommended by Sarah and Eric (both talented baristas), we decided it was no longer an option: we had to go.
The environment is beautiful: light flowing through their store front windows, long marble counter tops, and a big, beautiful coffee roaster. I had never been to a coffee shop that has a live DJ spinning it up while people sip their lattes/espressos and type away at their laptops. We thought about leaving because we weren’t sure we were quite cool enough for the joint, but decided to chance it, ordered a latte and took a seat. You can tell a lot from a coffee shop by the latte they make and I am happy to say that theirs did not disappoint. The rich roast of their beans combined with the mellow grooves the DJ played made for an excellent break in our day. I can’t wait to stop in again to try another one of their delicious drinks and, of course, see what music they’re spinning.
