The choices of coffee are excellent and delicious. The only thing that I could criticize was the fact that, with only one person on duty, the service was slow. We were there in the evening, so I suspect that there may be more baristas during the day.

This is one place that has lots of space, and has an unusually pretty space. And our coffee was great. Snacks around, although we didn't have any- they really looked good.

Zoka has the highest quality coffee so it was a pleasure to find this place. The service was inattentive. But the location in downtown Kirkland was killer. Not a lot of people at 7 pm on Monday night. Because of the high glass windows, the cafe has a metro feel. So I found a plush chair, pulled up my laptop... More

The lattes here are very good but in the past I have not gone because of snooty service. This weekend the service was quite nice.

I like the coffee at Zoka. The brew a good cup. Staff are friendly. What mars the experience is that it is mostly hard surfaces inside so the noise it loud.

guess everyone has their different taste of coffee. My wife like it strong and a little bit sour, while I prefer it medium and smooth. So far, we both satisfied with the ones Zoka provided. I like Zoka's environment. The big bright window, the contemporary decoration style, and that cool big clock on the wall. The staff work there is... More

The idea of using a coffee shop for a work space is nothing new, but the first thing I noticed when I arrived at 11am on a Wednesday was that 99.9% of the seats were taken up by people appearing to be doing some sort of work. My friend and I wanted a place to chat and catch up. Instead,... More

We enjoyed the best coffee we have tasted in Seattle, even the best of the three states of the US we have visited. I can also recommend the Piroshky- white chocolate and cherry- it's another winner.
