My Favorite Places
Dated: May 8 2023
This is an ongoing list of places I love to visit in my free time.
Olympia Coffee House was founded in 2005—one year after I arrived in the area myself.
I have watched this little company grow and expand and have enjoyed going into the shop and having a quiet moment watching the roasters at work. If you like to read more about them, you can learn more from their website. https://www.olympiacoffee.com/pages/our-story
The Little Buddy flavor is one of my all-time favorites.
If you love coffee and want a quality brand, stop at the Olympia Coffee House for a cup today or take a bag home. They have 10 different roasts to choose from. I am sure you will find one just right for you.
You can find them at their Downtown location at 600 4th East, Olympia, WA 98501.
Hours are M - F, 6:30 AM - 6 PM, and Saturday and Sunday, 7 AM - 6 PM.
The Painted Plate has been in Olympia since 1995. They are a favorite place among all ages as a great place to go and enjoy the company of friends or to take a break out of your day and do something creative.
Many families start traditions with the Painted Plate that are carried out year after year. Christmas ornaments with hand prints or plates with baby feet prints. These unique items become fairly heirlooms. I know from personal experience that those memories are cherished.
Not only do they have a well-stocked choice of items to paint they have a coffee bar area and ice cream - these are great treats to enjoy while you are hanging out.
The staff is friendly and helpful, showing how much they love working there.
The painted plate can be reserved for private parties, birthday parties, or individual tables. Individual Table reservations are highly recommended during peak times.
Monday-Thursday 11 AM-9 PM
Friday & Saturday 11 AM-11 PM
Sunday 12 PM-7 PM
