Agua Verde Cafe & Paddle Club

Agua Verde Cafe & Paddle Club

Summer time favorite, but yummy year round. Delicious, reasonable and authentic. Pluses also include: plenty of parking and dining with a view and margarita in hand, what's not to love!

The biscuits are tall and fluffy... like Dolly Parton's 'do. Many go for them sandwich-style at this U-District coffee spot, but you've got to try them straight-up to fully appreciate the carbtasticness. Seasonal specials include a eggnog-pumpkin version. Heck yum.
