KIRKLAND, WASH. - Mercury’s Coffee Co. was selected BEST Coffee shop by the voters of Western Washington in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016's Best of Western Washington contest.
If you're looking for the best place to grab a cup, we just so happen to have the results for best coffee-- Mercury's in Kirkland!
We show up on just any old day, in the middle of the day and the line is 5 cars deep.
When Mercury’s opened their 6th location, the distinctive Kirkland drive thru just across the street from some other coffee shop, bedlam ensued. Mercury’s was offering grand opening free drinks!
“Kirkland police showed up a couple times,” said owner Morgan Harris. “We didn't have anything less than a couple hundred people in line pretty much for 12 hours.”
They're known on the eastside not only for what they serve, but how they serve it.
“For us to know them, their families, even their dog's name is not uncommon,” said Harris. “It goes a lot deeper than just their drink.”
It's no accident that the door is ceiling to floor. Barristas don't always wait for you to come to them...they come out to greet you.
For all this you voted them the best coffee shop around!
So congrats all 'round to a place that knows a regular cup of Joe can sometimes be more than just coffee.
“You can be the one bright spot,” said Harris. “First thing they do, they wake up in the morning, you could be the first person they talk to y'know?”
