A handful of coffee spots to enjoy as you stroll up and down Capitol Hill. Bonus points if you hit all of them in one day. Just think about a decaf or two, ok?
One of the last stops in Capitol Hill before you cross over I-5 to downtown. Surrounded by books and coffee, you might want to stick around.
Spacious and airy spot for sitting, reading, or browsing. Peek in at coffee being roasted and take advantage of weekly cuppings.
A stylish stop with a cool neon sign and a staff that once refused to let me leave until I took a free, end-of-day pastry.
Step away from the busy Denny/Olive intersection for very good coffee, and a spacious spot to watch a steady stream of people pass by.
A few blocks from the Pike/Pine epicenter, Porchlight is a laid-back oasis of coffee. Also: records! From their own label and beyond.
A drive-through or walk-up teeny-tiny spot serving Herkimer coffee. Say hi to Mo, the owner and one of the friendliest people ever.
One of the few places I don't mind waiting in line. Lively conversation and activity at this walk-up coffee classic.
The historic Loveless Building is the setting for this charming coffee spot. Don't pass up a crepe or the soup listed on the chalkboard.
Herkimer coffee, pour-overs, comics, and a quiet, low-key location.
