Cafe Dolce, a new indy cafe in downtown Spokaloo. Sure, there are several Starbucks close by but the lure of this refurbished historic building with exposed brick walls, uneven hard wood floors and handcrafted espresso drinks is just too much of a lure for this ad exec and freelance writer. Did I mention the free WI-FI? As I drove by, it called to me like a siren, and though this is my first time here, sbux stockholder or not, I really like it. It reminds me a little bit of my first Starbucks. Besides the usual coffee house pastries, Cafe Dolce serves breakfast and lunch. I was very happy having oatmeal, with all the fixings and toast. Rumor has it Cafe Dolce is still serving up coffee after dark.

"Okay, we don't hate Starbucks, how could we?
They are a Washington company and conveniently scattered all over town, so we are semi-regular customers. We do appreciate a Starbucks alternative, though; therefore, here is a list of a few of our favorite local "indy" coffee houses we suggest you try."
