Looked for a nice coffee shop and there aren't a lot of them--but the Fourth Street Bakery & Cafe is one of the best I've ever seen! Wonderful bakery and great coffee.

I drive past this café a lot, but I don't stop in to much because I think they are a little pricey for a bagel shop. A local family owns and manages it, so you feel like your helping the local economy, and the community. They have healthy breads, like cibotta that they bake themselves. This is the one I... More

We did not eat there because the lady at the counter said they ran out of all soups except for the broccoli and cheese soup. Really? On a Saturday morning at 11:40? Isn't this a perfect lunch time? There weren't many people any way. There were 4 in total. So we turned back and left. Disappointed.

In Seattle, we know coffee, but this place proves that other places can do a good job too. They have a great selection of teas and desserts. The service was fantastic and the real topper for me was the donation bins for towels for the local animal rescue shelter.

A wonderful place for coffee and a bagel, and to meet with friends! This is just a nice place to be. It is set up well for conversation with friends. I have often met a friend for a "30 minute coffee catch up" on a weekend morning only to realize 2 hours later that we are still there visiting! It... More
