Astro Biz: Moondrop Coffee

Many businesses, products, and places have names rooted in space and astronomy. We’re featuring them regularly on Seattle Astronomy.

I discovered Moondrop recently by happy accident. My bride just started a new job with the Seattle City Employees’ Retirement System and is commuting by Water Taxi. The dock is just a 20-minute walk from Seattle Astronomy headquarters, and I started making the stroll with her to get my blood pumping in the morning. She said, by way of inducing me into the a.m. march, “There’s a little coffee shop right down there.” Cool that it turned out to be an Astro Biz as well!

As I popped in after the boat left the dock, the commuters were gone, it was quiet, and I had the place to myself. They make a darn fine Americano! Moondrop also serves tea, juice, smoothies, and has bagels, sandwiches, waffles, banana bread, and other light munchies.
