Best of Spokane: The Coffee House
It seems like downtown Spokane has at least one coffee house on every block and even more specialty coffee shops throughout the area. Each coffee shop has its own culture, decor, sounds and tastes. College students cramming for tests, business people and shoppers stop in for a minute or for hours, taking advantage of free wifi, a place to meet and accessible caffeine. When you come to study English at the Spokane College of English Language, be sure to take part in our local coffee house culture.
Among our staff and teachers’ favorite shops are: Caffé Affogato, Boots, Atticus and The Rocket.
