Jet City Expresso- Renton, WA
I've passed "Jet City Expresso" many times and wondered what it was. It looked like a run down gas station which had turned into some kind of 'junk yard.' Signs advertising "coffee sold here" marked the walls, so this led me to believe it was a coffee shop. I guess I thought it had been a coffee shop and now was a 'junk yard.'
Today I went inside "Jet City Expresso" and discovered it is indeed a coffee shop. Everywhere you look, you see interesting treasures. My favorite is the old juke box...or maybe it is the old beauty shop chair .... actually there is so much to explore in the shop. You walk through the doors and are transported into this strange land. Your mind finds it difficult to embrace the fact this is a coffee shop.
I didn't actually order coffee while in there. I did end up in a discussion about the latest weather in the Philippines. The man behind the counter looked it up on the internet and we talked about the horrible weather and the tragedy in Indonesia and Somoa. I should have ordered coffee. I wanted to order coffee....not necessarily to drink there, but to take away with me. I could tell the person I was with didn't want to order coffee, so I just left.
My project for later this week- to return and order coffee this time. (I'm sure I'll take some time to explore some of the other things in the shop)
