Good Spot to Write a Blog - King Street Coffee

I am always looking for a good place to hang out and write.  I've got a new one to add to my list - King Street Coffee in Leesburg, Virginia.

Located in an old house in historic Leesburg, the living room is a perfect place to hang out and read and write.  It's located at the corner of S. King and Royal Street, and here's the proof:

Reopened after a brief closing during the purchase from the previous owner, King Street has been open since September, 2010.  The coffee is locally brewed (by Winchester Coffee Roasters, Winchester, VA), and is great.  (Click Here) for Winchester Coffee Roaster's website.
 
They use an old-fashioned library card catalog system to organize their customer cards - buy ten cups of coffee, get one free!

King Street also has a rotating artist's display.  Currently, there is some really cool work by artist Stephen Loya.

Today's friendly barista, Abbie, was extremely shy about having her picture taken.  Thanks for giving permission, Abbie!
