Granat's


coffee week day 4 - feeling nostalgic already!

What used to be Kozy Kitchen, a family-run bakery, is now Granat’s, which still has the bakery biz but also a 600-sq-ft café w/ little granite tables where you can get espresso drinks made w/ Segafredo Zanetti coffee beans. Owner David Granat made some dough in mergers & acquisitions but decided to focus on another kind of dough (har). He still does the cakes Kozy Kitchen was known for, but also bakes challah on Fridays, milktarts, a specialty of South Africa (that’s where he’s from), and even the foccaccia w/ which the café’s sandwiches are made.

did not one nyce reader get a free sbux ice cream? does anyone know anyone who did? or was this just another hoax by the co. that portrays itself as a benevolent employer but limits employee hours to starvation part-time?

OH, SURE, DEAR, USE THAT EXCUSE. I SUPPOSE THE CAPITAL LETTER AT THE BEGINNING OF YOUR SENTENCE" WAS ALSO IMPLIED.

FOR SHAME, PAULAMINO.

Twisted Cur: Yes, like the lower case letters in your sentences are implied. Are you some kind of cockroach like Archie -- of Archie and Mehitabel, in case you don't recognize the reference -- that has to dive at the keys headfirst and thus can't manage both caps and lowercase?

hey boss, would you leave the keyboard on caps lock so i can write in all caps like that mangy dog? and try to leave a few more krispie kreme crumbs next to your computer. you newspaper people freeload off everyone but can hardly share enough to keep a body alive.

tg: i think those kozy kitchen cakes sound great. leave some at your place, and i'll come visit.

twisted: i'm curious. just how do you type? i know your paws are too fat (sorry if i offend) to work the keyboard. the only thing i can figure is that you flick your tail on the keys, rather powerfully i would suspect. to be truthful, i'm a bit in awe

twisted dog: you look like someone i've seen in the alley. what the heck! tour jours gai, or whatever the phrase is. i'm off to see that my kittens, who i left under a rain spout, are learning to swim in this cooling rain we are having in seattle, home of the great, unmatched sbux company

pretenders: archie and mehitabel was my invention, the result of many days slaving over a daily column, just like steve and jackie at the dim news. so lay off, you archie and mehitabel wanabees.

i am surprised you approve of the name-calling directed at that mangy mongrel. after all, he came to your defense over the fashion/fancy usage. guess he's licking his wounds and feeling lonesome right now.

NOBODY CAME UP WITH TWISTED CUR. I'M TOTALLY DISAPPOINTED AT THE LACK OF CREATIVITY HERE.

I TYPE WITH MY TONGUE, OF COURSE. WHO TYPES WITH THEIR TAIL? WHAT A JOKE.
