A little bit about The Station. If you love funky, comfy, and one-of-a-kind, you will quickly grow to adore this cafe. The owner, Luis, is an absolute sweetie. There's even outside seating in his very inviting back patio. I hesitate to say more because I'm afraid I will no longer be able to find a seat at my favorite Seattle hang-out, but in the interest of poetry I insist: get yourself up, up, up to this inviting cafe across the street from the Beacon Hill light rail stop, 2533 16th Avenue S., between Bayview and Lander Streets. And, on the 2nd Wednesday of each month, plan on getting there early for a coveted seat (and don't forget to bring a poem to share).
