Friday Afternoon

In December 2017, Friday Afternoon made the successful transition from an online tea store to a full-fledged tea room, located on Stone Way North in Seattle's Wallingford neighborhood.

The tea room is a welcoming and inclusive geek-friendly space.  The room is well-lit with plentiful seating at tables and in cozy armchairs, and there are dozens of tabletop games available for entertainment. 

The walls are decorated with artwork by featured local artists, often in collaboration with the neighborhood Art Walk.  I was delighted to see pieces by my dear friend Laura Cameron on display during one of my visits!

Friday Afternoon hosts a wide range of workshops and events like pop-up shops, concerts by the Seattle Video Game Orchestra, Chat and Craft sessions, cosplay events, and Paint & Sip workshops like the one I attended in August.  Check out their Calendar to learn about upcoming events!

The tea room offers a nice selection of loose leaf white, green, oolong, and black teas, as well as herbals and tisanes.  All teas are available to enjoy in-house or to-go.  Packaged tea and teaware are also available for purchase.

Owner Friday Elliott is an experienced tea blender and has created an impressive range of seasonal and themed teas, most notably the Fandom Blends.  Friday also provides custom blending services by appointment.  

For this visit, I savored a pot of Satemwa Dark tea which was served in a French press with complimentary hot water refills.  I also took the opportunity to stock up on Coffee Kisses tea from Bitaco in Colombia.

At the time of this review, tea room hours may differ due to COVID-19.  Follow Friday Afternoon on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for updates and more!
