Really Bad Customer Service – The employees are so rude. There is seriously bad energy at the queen anne and bothell cafe ladro locations, its like they are told to be nasty to people or something...maybe they are treated badly and its a bad place to work or something. I have had several bad experiences - kept giving them 2nd chances because i dont like the taste of starbucks coffee...but cafe ladro employees are just consistently rude to customers and so i will not go here again and i will find somewhere else to get my coffee and would advise folks to go somewhere else for your coffee where you will be treated well. shouldn't that be the case? you pay them money - they should at least be a little pleasant! at a minimum they should not be rude!
Order the Medici Mocha with fresh orange peel! The fresh orange essence makes this drink heavenly - there's no way one of the big chain coffee shops could ever put so much love into your coffee. Ladro is the gold standard for Seattle coffee, no one else comes close. While you're there, check out the every-changing art gallery by local artists, and snag one of the outdoor adinarondack chairs for the best people watching on Queen Anne Ave.
I'll avoid this one for a shop that combines great coffee with great service... – I must be the only person who has had a less than magical experience at this coffeeshop. While the coffee is usually pretty tasty, I have found the baristas to be unnecessarily rude. In the past, the staff's haughtiness hasn't interfered with their coffee-making but this last time, the coffee drinks weren't even good. In future, I'll avoid this one for a shop that combines great coffee with great service.
Great coffee and generous spirit! – The cafe is wonderful! Not only do they serve amazing espresso and cake, but they also come with a very big heart. The store donated one of their signature desserts for a very beneficial cause, which just goes to show how much they love the Seattle community. Whether you're a regular local or an out-of-towner, this is the best place to grab a quick pick me up. Or sit back and take in the atmosphere. Cheers!
This local chain brings expressive personality to the morning coffee break. – In Short
In Spanish, Caffe Ladro means "coffee thief," and, as its name suggests, these neighborhood coffeehouses have clearly made off with a number of caffeine fans from the nearby chains. Customers toss their coats over their chairs and the regulars feel comfortable leaning over the counter to use the phone. A variety of pastries are available to munch with espresso drinks--a slice of deep dish fruit pie is a filling, if totally unhealthy, lunch.
Depends on location – Sure the downtown and East Capital hill locations leave something to be desired, however in Queen Anne or Freemont you get a great ambiance.
ghost town for good reason – No wonder this place is always empty! Mediocre coffee, sterile atmosphere and a genric crowd to boot. Great if you like chains, unintersting clientele & don't care about good coffee or pastries.
Ladro is the BEST! – Every morning I stop by the Ladro in lower QA and get my double-tall nonfat. Hands down, it's the best latte in town. the Espresso chip cookies and muffins are awesome too. The staff is fun. On weekends, i go to the one on the top of QA and it's great as well. Give it a try...
low keyed perfection – Ladro on 15th Ave: Very friendly and unpretentious cafe. The staff are always charming and helpful. The desserts and pastries are delicious.
Yes, Yes, Yes! – Great Coffee! Great Decor! Great Desserts! Friendly Baristas who pull delicious shots!
