Writers can be found all over Seattle, but due to the weather, we need indoor places to do 0ur writing. Fuel on Montlake fits the bill for a neighborhood place that still manages to be urban enough for the focused writer. There are enough small tables and a few large ones. It is busy, but not so busy that you have to hunt for a table. In the summer time there are even tables in a little courtyard out back. There is nice art on the walls. I usually order a wrap sandwich. I like the Thai cashew chicken one in a green tortilla. They don’t have a kitchen here, so you need to pick out a cold salad, wrap, or get a quiche warmed up. It is hard to resist the goodies as you stand in line for the cash register. The “high five” hand pie display always gets me. A little apple hand pie, goes really well with the green tea or latte I order. They carry Numi brand of tea, which is a great quality tea and just put the bag in a mug, rather than the fussiness of a teapot. There can be a long line around lunch time, and I recommend grabbing a table first if you notice a line forming. For laptops, you can find plug-ins. There is music here, but it is not Musak, and usually isn’t too loud for pondering plots. I often bring my car, and park it on a side street without much effort. People come to have meetings, or to get a treat, after walking through the Arboretum. Either way, Fuel has a good vibe for writing.
