Reviews for Elliot Bay Cafe

Elliot Bay Cafe

Love. This. Place. This stellar book seller has thousands of titles on the shelves including an extensive selection of fiction and non-fiction titles covering topics from from cooking to semiotics. They also host hundreds of author readings each year.


Amazon be damned! This is the center of the universe when it comes to books, a store that's so inviting you're gonna wanna hang out there. That, plus it's a magnet for super sexy bibliophiles. You know who you are!

Wander this spacious spot for book lovers, taking note of handwritten staff recommendations. Or just get lost amidst the shelves.

A Seattle institution that's perfect for browsing on a rainy day after brunch at Oddfellows. Awesome selection of art & LGBT books, as well as local authors from the Pacific Northwest.

Citysearch Editorial Review – This Seattle landmark has settled comfortably into its new location, looking as though it’s been here for years between Pike and Pine among Capitol Hill’s many coffeehouses, taverns and boutiques. The bookstore’s feel hasn’t changed: large paneled windows display new releases and old favorites, and the atmosphere inside is open and airy with exposed pipes and wooden beams. With over 150,000 books displayed on cedar shelves over two stories, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for. Comfortable leather chairs spread throughout the store invite sampling before deciding what to purchase. For a quiet place to work, there are also several rustic tables and their new café (which will open in June). With several author readings, book club meetings and other events per week, there’s always something interesting going on at the Elliott Bay Book Company.
