Kent Hangs: Scribbles Coffee Shop.

18 comments
Hello everyone! ♥

I had the ideal weekend--the perfect balance of hanging with friends and feeling accomplished getting homework done. For awhile now I've wanted to check out a 'hole in the wall' coffee shop in downtown Kent called Scribbles. I've always known it was there, but it's a pretty far walk and just never had time. Erin and I made the venture down to Scribbles though on Friday, and it certainly lives up to the hype around here.

A good coffee shop to me doesn't feel perfect and put together. It feels mismatched, used, and holds memories and experiences of all the people who have had coffee there. Scribbles was all that and more for me, topping even my favorite coffee shop back home. It's small and cluttered with lots of details to be examined. There's shelves upon shelves of used books to glance through and if you leave a book, you can take any of them with you.

I also loved the tables which had white sheets of paper taped on them where you could scribble whatever your heart desires. It was strange (and possibly fate?) that Erin and I sat down at a table that had a quote and then, Someone Like You (5th photo). I thought I recognized it as a song lyric, but after coming back and researching all of the songs titled 'Someone Like You', none of them have this. I don't know where it's from, but it made the coffee shop have this unexplainable, just-by-chance connection with me.

Okay, awesome atmosphere but how about the coffee? I thought it was good. I know a lot of people don't think it's that great, but isn't taste subjective? I got a pumpkin pie mocha which went perfectly with the chocolate chip pumpkin loaf I also got. Not pictured because I ate it too fast :)

I'm really hoping to live closer to Scribbles next year so that I can walk/or drive down more often. It's perfect to me.

With much love, Lauren.
