Obsidian Cafe + Bar in Olympia, Wash.

"Coffee shop by day, bar and venue by night," is the definition of Obsidian located in downtown Olympia, Washington. The menu offers a variety of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free items. Grab a bite to eat and study for your class with complimentary WiFi.

I suggest trying their delicious lavender syrup made in-house with much less sugar than your average coffee joint. I put it into an iced latte which then became perfection.


The above is their delicious panini of Nisqually tribe smoked salmon, fennel, chèvre and aioli served on local Blue Heron farm bread, with house salad and dressing.

My favorite: fresh gluten-free waffles. I've tried both their blueberry and chocolate coconut with nutella. To-die-for!

Perhaps the best part: the transgender affirming bathrooms. If you're looking for a safe space to be yourself or you just like to support businesses that support the important stuff, consider Obsidian.

Obsidian is also the best place to cuddle with puppies.

Case closed.
