    There is a 30% discount coupon sometimes on UW-daily so check it out. Free wifi for purchase. Americano is okay and the atmosphere is cozy and classic. Try zoka chocolate bar, yum!

    With power outlets everywhere it is no surprise to see an entire office working here in the afternoon. It's a great place to get some work done and taste a great cappuccino.

    Often a hub for the student-homework types & techies; commiserate in your grief over homework or share your Apple product love at this laptop factory with a great tea selection.

    Huge and open, so an excellent place to relax or work. The coffee and pastries are good. Don't get the tea though if you're a tea snob like me.

    Duff McKagan: There are a few Zoka’s around town, but the one on Blakeley (in the shadow of U of Washington), has the best ambience. Zoka roasts their coffee on premise. http://bit.ly/phhnN0

    Caprucinno is on point. I usually come here for the environment. Fast wifi, a lot of plugs, and a place where I can focus.

    Well-trained baristas. The espresso is alright here. The brewed coffee is alright as well. Prob the best option in the area though. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    I know they don't advertise it but they are really good at latte art. Have them draw a milk picture in your next coffee.

    The almond croissant is heavenly. Chai could use a bit more punch... a little bland for chai.

    Slow internet but the huge tables in the very back are awesome for spreading all your stuff out and getting lots of work done

    Coffee and muffins are great! Lunch sandwiches aren't the most filling, but are really good and pretty inexpensive.

    Great study spot, but it gets busy at night around midterms and finals. Still worth hanging out at for the great coffee.

    Coffee is alright, sure you could probably find better in Seattle but the community feel and large work places is prime for work and students

    And Don't listen to the critique on the Internet. You get 6 hrs and they are happy to give you another code if you need more.

    if you're expecting sbux, leave. smooth, uncharred espresso with no bitterness is what they pull or chemex dripped. for me, skip the coffee and go for their loose leaf tea. get a pot; it's better deal Read more

    Handcrafted coffee is good but baristas are not very productive. Herkimer has quality and efficiency.

    Great cappuccinos, and the Zoka bakery makes some amazing pie - try the rhubarb or the peach pie!

    Poor wifi setup. Complex login. No automatic connection - need to go through a webpage that doesn't pop up. If you really need wifi this isn't unfortunately isn't the place to go.

    The internet at Zoka is now uber lame - limited to 2 hours so spread your purchases out if you plan on camping out longer than 2 hours!
