Yes, the java to Fremont Coffee Company is good.

But let’s be real – a huge motivator to go here is the patio.

The place: A section of the vast outdoor space is surrounded by greenery that makes it look like you’re in a dreamy botanical garden if you position your Zoom camera just right.

  • Because the cafe is located on the ground floor of an old house, it’s easy to feel like an extension of your living room.
  • This is also the case on drizzly days, when you can sit by a window and watch the fog settle in and the raindrops fall.
  • The patio is also covered for the most part, which is practical.

To note : The cafe counter and register area have recently been refurbished, but for me this hasn’t changed the laid back atmosphere significantly.

Address: Fremont Coffee Company, 459 N 36th St.
