This place is always buzzing and it's not just because of the caffeine coming from the fair trade beans that are roasted on site. Grab a chair outside or a table inside and watch the people come and go at this popular Cap Hill joint.
There are so many coffee hot spots around the city, it's easy to overlook one of the original gems. This Capitol Hill location serves velvety lattes and Americanos with the right amount of crema on top. There are various pastries to nosh and plenty of room to spread out the laptop. You might catch a whiff of attitude on occasion, but so what? The well-made coffee trumps all.
Caffe Vita ROCKS Seattle for coffee – I don't do drip. Double Iced 16oz. lattes X 2. Coffee of choice on vacation though, makes the luggage smell like home, just add Caroline's. Ladro won their awards with Vita coffee, not that organic free trade sh*t they serve now. Warm staff & pet friendly.
QA between 7-9a Seattle's best looking women drop in for VITA !
Awesome coffee, great (and cute) baristas! – I can't think of anything else either. The coffee quality and taste says it all - it's terrific. I'm a coffee fan and I've had coffees from artisan coffee roasters in many places and I've gotta say, Caffe Vita is definitely one of the best I've had. The baristas were so nice and friendly that we ended up chatting about everything! I can't imagine how the other reviewer got bad service; it must've been during a really busy time. My favorite is their "regular" coffee, which if you go to other cafes, it's drip. But here, they make with a French press, which produces a full tasting coffee with a full body. At prices lower than the chain cafes, I'm making this a regular stop of my daily commute.
great coffee, terrible service – I am so sad about the service at Vita because the coffee is so good. And it is the closest coffee place! Unfortunately the attitude is extremely snooty... I'll miss the drinks.
BEST COFFEE IN SEATTLE – These guys make excellent coffee. I have everyone in my office hooked on Caffe Vita. The atmosphere is great. They have exciting art on the walls and a large glass window that allows me to see how they roast the coffee. The staff was friendly and answered some questions I had about how the roasting process. I recommend Caffe Vita to anyone who wants to experience coffee at it's finest.
Rude Staff in Queen Anne – First let me say that I LOVE Vita coffee. However, when I go out of my way to stop at the Queen Anne location for my favorite drink I am met with very rude service. Last time put me over the top... two women working there unbelievably sized me up as i walked in and gave me obvious looks of scorn when I asked for a double shot capuccino. One of them went so far as to look at me again and mumble "huh, would have never guessed". If it wasn't for the coffee, I would have just walked out.. probably should have. This horrible disregard for their customers is pathetic for such a tiny little coffee shop. I will never visit this location again! I would recommend going to the Capitol Hill location or somewhere else if you want to avoid uncessary rudeness and still enjoy good coffee.
best logo, best coffee! – caffe vita has the best coffee by far in seattle. not only can those barista's serve you a damn fine cup of coffee, but they also can make you feel like a true neighborly customer!
javalicious! – Caffe Vita offers excellent coffee, genuine coffeehouse ambience, and great service.
Caffe Vita is it. – Caffe Vita is the greatest all time roaster and coffee house in this city!!!!!!!!!!!! And it's dog friendly too!!!!!
Bitter grounds – There must be a "finishing school" for barristas to learn good manners. If so, I would recommend the staff at this Cafe attend. Good coffee and eats are pointless when the people at the counter are surly. There are too many welcoming barristas in this town to waste your time at Cafe Vita.
Decent food, questionable service! – I used to go to Vita with groups of friends that met every Saturday. Sometimes 5-25 people, and usually it was fine for Vita to accomodate us. Apparently, after some time, they changed their minds. The baristas got more rude toward our group, and little effort was made to welcome our money and patronage. Eventually, it ended in our being asked to sit up in the smoking area - YUK! Great if you're a smoker, but sucks if you don't. The situation was handled poorly, and instead of trying to work out things to a good end for both, our group left. Was it just our party, or perhaps some resentment to our group (which is gay)? I suppose Vita and we will never find out, as we now frequent somewhere that likes our money and patronage.
