June 9, 2010 Mt Baker, Seattle, WA 98144 Mt Baker Park at  Mio Posto Caffe, I begin my goal of visiting all the coffee shops in the neighborhoods I live in and sell real estate in. Yes, it’s a large task but hey, somebody’s got to do it to share where to find the best cup of coffee and the moistest, savoriest baked goods, right?  I should be checking out all the gyms then too to work off the morning treats…another time and blog perhaps.

“Mioposto, which translates to “my place,” is nestled among the greenery and garden-like setting of Seattle’s historic Mount Baker neighborhood. Mioposto Caffe & Pizzeria opened in March of 2006.

The fire from Mioposto’s wood-burning oven exudes the warmth and fragrance of the menu, featuring the intimate and soul-satisfying flavors from the Italian hearth. Handmade (traditional and not-so-traditional) individual pizzas, panini and calzones are lovingly born from a special dough recipe.

Angeli Pan, “Angel’s Bread” in Italian, is the aptly named ingredient—our divine pizza dough—that finds its way throughout the heart of the menu, from our pizzas and calzones to our sandwich rolls and croutons. For early risers, Mioposto’s offerings include organic espresso from Caffe Vita, fresh juices and an abundant variety of baked goods from Seattle’s finest local bakeries, as well as homemade frittatas and quiches.

Set amidst pedestrian-friendly, tree-lined streets across from the park, only a hop, skip and jump from the shores of Lake Washington, Mioposto sparkles on its intimate corner adorned by striped awnings and Adirondack chairs, while festive music serenades through the breeze of the open windows on a spring or summer day.”

So this morning, I’m sitting at one of the comfy window seats with a view of the passing parade of cars on their way out into the world.  Moms with kids stroll in, runners after their morning jog at Lake Washington,  diners with the morning paper, a group of college kids having a lively conversation- all enjoying the italian atmosphere of Mio Posto.

I’ve heard the Rainier Valley use to be called “Garlic Gulch” pre-60’s because so many Italians lived here.  The stalwarts from that era are Oberto’s specializing in meats and beef jerky, also major sponsor of the Seafair Stan Sayers Hydroplane races in August.  Borraccini’s is an old style deli, bakery and store – if you haven’t been there, it’s a must on the list of places to go.  They have great frozen meatballs, imho.

Googling “garlic gulch” I found an interesting article on the Rainier Valley Historical site

My treat today on Day 1 was a large chai with a light foamy head and a whole wheat banana blueberry muffin; moist inside with a toasty, cruncy top  sprinkled with chunky sugar. It was good. The cost $7.44 incl tip. This is my first treat in quite awhile as I recently finished a 13 day master cleanse diet which consisted solely of fresh, organic lemons, grade b maple syrup and cayenne pepper.  Calories, more than i want to know!  So today is a huge treat for me…yum!

My goal as I set out on this adventure is to have fun, explore the neighborhoods I serve, to engage in the communities and to learn more about where I live. I hope you enjoy the journey!

I’m planning to incorporate with facebook, twitter, yelp, foursquare, and other blogs; not sure exactly what that looks like yet, but it will be revealed as the journey progresses.

Would love to hear from you and your favorites coffee shops and cafes.

Oh yes and to fund my journey, when you know someone who needs real estate services, I will appreciate you mentioning my name to them and sending them to my blogs or website:  https://kcsells.wordpress.com  or http:  http://www.kcsells.com or http://karicollins.featuredblog.com

Preggo!  as they say at Mio Posto.  Cheers.
