It's one of Seattle's early independent coffee houses and it's stood the test of time for good reason! Quirky staff and a location that compliments this caffeine destination. On a hot summer day, there's no better place to hang and enjoy an iced latte and the view!

My favorite espresso – This is a great neighborhood shop. I wish it was in my neighborhood. I go out of my way to buy espresso for my home machine and always have a shot pulled by one of the talented baristas here.

Heady aromas beckon loyal crowds to a classic Fremont cafe. – In Short
Tucked into an unassuming storefront on the north slope of Fremont, Lighthouse Roasters serves what many consider to be Seattle's finest cup of coffee. A smattering of friends, neighbors, dogs, groovy murals and artwork provides a comfortable spot to waste away the day. Along with the coffee and espresso offerings, the cafe also serves an assortment of pastries and Odwalla juices.

The smoothest latte in Seattle! – I've tried lattes from dozens of coffee shops around Seattle, but keep coming back to Lighthouse. The shots are perfectly pulled with no bitterness and have a wonderful taste and aroma. But what really sets their lattes above the rest, is the use of top quality milk and expert steaming. The end result is creamy, smooth and utterly delicious. I crave Lighthouse lattes every morning, knowing that first sip will be heaven.

The shop itself is comfortable and unpretentious, while the staff are friendly and courteous. Highly recommended!

Worth waiting for this decadent brew! – This is very good coffee and well worth the trip, worth the frustration of finding a place to park, and worth the long lines. The coffee is rich and smooth, and simply like sipping heaven.

I now live in Florida but whenever I'm in Seattle (not enough!) I go for this joe. Thankfully I have wonderful friends and family that send me beans. The coffee shop gladly ships beans, also.

Light House Roasters – The coffee here has it's good days and bad days... and the good days are not great. Although it's a great place to hang out, the coffee isn't up to par to what it used to be. I don't know what happened they were awesome back in '04. I keep sporadically going back hoping it will be better. Go to Cafe Vivace in Cap Hill or Zeitgeist in Pioneer Square for better.

Best Coffee Ever – Great smooth non-acidic coffee. The cappacino was excellent.

Maybe it's me... – I read the sparkling reviews of this place and couldn't wait to try their coffee. The first time it was tasty coffee, but came with a mouthful of grounds...as if it were made with a french press that was never pressed. I mean a good tsp to tbsp of grounds. I was picking it out of my teeth for an hour. I thought maybe I got the bitter end of the pot, then I went back and got the same thing. Coffee good, but if you have to stop with about 1/3 to 1/4 of the cup left to avoid grindage, I'll go elsewhere. I love Seattle coffee quite a bit...but I still can't find a piping hot cup anywhere but (oy) Starpukes. Was there some kind of law passed that you can't walk out of a shop with a piping hot cup of coffee (except for SB)...maybe it's me.

Destination Coffee – When I lived in Seattle I would ride my bike for miles for Lighthouse coffee. Now that I live in California it now 'destination coffee'. Happy dogs, great espresso and Ethopian coffee. The best there is. Drink it.

Nectar of the Gods – Hands down, the premiere shot of espresso in the city. Super smooth, velvety, no trace of cheap grassy, Brazilian bittnerness that defines most every other local roaster. My biggest problem with these guys is that I can't find their outside of Fremont and Ballard.

Barista Snobs – While the coffee is good, these baristas are the kind that make fun of you if you don't order just right. Its COFFEE, for gods sake. Get over it.
