    If you have not yet been to Highland Park Corner store you are missing out. This awesome cafe, mini grocery, and friendly patio spot epitomizes everything that makes West Seattle special. The coffee is terrific, the grocery and wine selection is inspired and the staff are unfailingly friendly and helpful. It is always clean. It is my new fave West Seattle spot!
