Goin’ to The Gorge? Need Coffee? Stop at Sage Coffeehouse & Bistro.

Sage Coffeehouse & Bistro is located off of I-90 just off exit 151. Located just north of the highway this converted gas station does a brisk business. It is close to the Gorge Amphitheater so if you need a bite to eat and something to drink before a Gorge show this would be good place to stop. If you are travelling to Spokane and you did not stop in Ellensburg this would be a good place. Traveling to Seattle?  Well you get the idea. This would be a good place to stop.

Busy, Busy, Busy….

On our visit we stopped in to Sage Coffeehouse & Bistro on a Saturday afternoon and found ourselves in a crowded place. All the tables were full inside and outside most of the seating was taken. Looks promising.  Edie tapped out and did not have anything at this stop. Something about wanting to sleep that night.  Sigh, rookies…. I ordered my drip coffee and was given a to go cup with coffee from a coffee pot that was on a burner. Not starting out too promising. This is another example though of not letting your assumptions get the best of you.

We did manage to secure a table and I took my first sip. Funny thing, I could not place it, but the coffee tasted different. Good, but different.  I took a couple more sips and decided that I was starting to like the coffee.  Edie tried a sip and she also thought it had an interesting taste.

After I finished my cup, I asked the barista what coffee they served.  It was Mela Coffee Roasting’s Vero Espresso Roast. Now to be honest I have tried Mela Coffee’s before, and they were not to my taste. This was different though.  It was tasty with a nutty profile and a bit of chocolate.  I enjoyed the coffee very much.  Tasty Coffee. Check

Friendly staff…… good looking food.

As I mentioned Sage Coffeehouse & Bistro was really busy when we stopped in.  No matter, the team behind the counter were operating with efficiency and provided friendly, patient service to everyone who was ordering.  The interior has a number of Knick knack items for sale T-Shirts with funny sayings, Seahawks themed items etc. The food that I saw being served looked very good. I had a white chocolate scone with my coffee, and it was quite nice. I was really impressed with the service.

If you’re on I-90 stop in and have coffee and maybe lunch. Get caffeinated before a Gorge show you know you’re going to need it!
