Zeitgeist: Seattle's Pioneer Square

7:39 AM. Distinct music on speakers : perfect indie pop for a morning cup of coffee. Average age: 43. Males! Woman in bike helmets and knee length shorts! Glasses! Local art on the wall - green, red and blue prints of people. Black and white photos! Brick walls. 30 - 40 foot ceilings. 50 + year old gentleman with ipod, beard, cup of coffee and black Google shirt just walked outside. Yogurt, pastries, Top Pot Donuts and espresso shots being pulled.

This is very much a "Seattle coffee shop" institution. Zeitgeist.

Perfect lighting, outdoor seating, 2000+ square feet, 3 bars against huge open windows and that loud, banjo and organ infested indie music blaring ever so softly out of the speakers: female singer: ohhhh, ohhh, ohhhhh......
