Not a Laptop in Sight

Books are surprisingly the only things being looked at by the sidewalk cafe patrons of Joe Bar on East Roy Street at Harvard on Capitol Hill. I found out after I took this shot that they limit their wifi hours, and that's why this scene differs so radically from other coffee houses in Seattle. If you visit this neighborhood, this is the place to come for crepes and and other menu items with a decidedly European bent. This year they added wine and beer to the offerings. It is across from a popular theater and is a wonderful place to people watch, rain or shine. There is also an art display within.

Cela donne envie d'y passer faire un tour

Sounds like a nice and cozy place to relax and eat crepes :)

I am always amazed by your interesting and divergent city. I had no idea there were so many quaint places.

This is so funny to me because I always read the paper online, but this morning for no reason I went and picked up a few papers. It was rather nice! Sometimes it's good to turn off the computer... said the girl with 3 blogs.

I call reading a book at the cafe, HI-wifi. It should be done with great regularity.
