It seems that there are coffee shops on just about every corner in the Seattle area. We Northwesterns love our java, but there is one locally owned coffee shop that stands out from all the others.
Mike’s Community Cup, a newer addition to the SeaTac community, is more than just your daily dose of caffeine. This locally owned, family operated business has a personal touch and gives back to the community. 10 cents from every beverage purchased goes back to organizations serving the SeaTac community including McMicken Heights Elementary School, SeaTac’s Back to School Resource Fair, Young Life, Des Moines Food Bank and local fire victims.
Mike Condon opened the shop in January 2009 across from Safeway on Military Road in SeaTac. Mike is a personable guy with a connection with his customers. Punch cards are held at the counter so customers don’t have to worry about carrying them around or losing them. Photography from local artists hangs on the wall for purchase.
The relaxed atmosphere has a draw for a wide audience with daily specials, a drive through, free wi-fi, a 42 inch Plasma tv, comfortable leather couches and a kids playing area. Sports fans are welcome to come in on weekends for some football and great drink specials.
The menu includes premium coffee beverages, hot, iced and blended, as well as Italian sodas, granitas and 8 flavors of delicious smoothies. Sizes of cup range from 8 ounces to 24 ounces. Along with the beverages, Mike’s also offers breakfast sandwiches, bagels, pastries and cookies. Breakfast sandwiches are a hot item because of their portion size, price and selection.
This is a great place to meet people in the neighborhood, have some truly great coffee, and help give back to the community.
