Seattle's landscape is dotted with dozens of regionally owned cafes that take artisian roasting, bad-ass barista skills and pleasing environments very seriously. Here are a few worth more than a first visit.
An inviting environment, free cuppings, great people watching and fair trade beans roasted on site means Vita will always be a go to on the Hill.
Centrally located in the heart of Cap Hill this comfortable spot roasts their beans just blocks away and offers a lively but not obnoxiously loud spot to work or have a conversation with a friend.
The 3rd Victrola cafe offers medium roast beans, community art shows and is convenient to the library and light rail. Check out their free cuppings at noon every lst Sunday of the month.
This beautifully designed cafe is great for conversation and people watching. Check out the soldier eggs, live jazz and special dinners.
Friendly service, contemporary design, quality espressos and mochas plus Mighty O Donuts make this a fine place to meet friends near UW.
This charming pint sized, two story cafe has affordable lite bites, interesting art shows and great people watching--and of course fine beverages.
