Montlake is really such a special Seattle “pocket” neighborhood. There are historic houses, legacy businesses, delicious food and drink, urban forests and of course water views and access to the Arboretum for more beautiful nature than you may imagine...all right here in Montlake! Seriously, if you haven’t taken a walk, run or bike ride through Montlake recently, you now have weekend plans!

There is simply nothing like Cafe Lago and it continues to stand out in an ever more crowded Seattle restaurant scene as a go-to favorite year after year, plate after plate, there's just nothing like it!

Dani has three great loves: great coffee, great food, and community. In 2005, Dani opened Fuel Coffee, and by 2007 had expanded it to 3 locations. In 2008, during a troubled economy, High 5 Pie was launched to bring a little “delicious comfort” to tough times. Dani believes that people come together over good food and drink and creates places that offer this experience, which most recently has lead to opening Cone & Steiner in 2014, now 3 locations and growing. Dani’s businesses have gained local and national attention (MSNBC, Martha Stewart, Bon Appetit, PSBJ 40 Under 40) and created speaking opportunities (TEDx, UW). Love of community is a driving force for Dani, who serves on the Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce Board, Capitol Hill Housing Board, GSBA Small Business Council, Chair of Seattle Entrepreneurial Women, FareStart Board and Employer Advisory Council, UW Foster School of Business MS Entre Advisory Board, and is a Founding Member of Seattle Made and 2018 winner of the Nellie Cashman Business Owner of the Year Award. Dani holds a BA in Business Economics from Willamette University.
