Bongo Java East on 11th

First time customers...Cute, quirky neighborhood coffee house, serving breakfast and lunch. Service was friendly. We had the Fishy Bomb and the Egg Bomb w/crispy bacon. Both sandwiches were very good. There are other menu items on the lighter side like oatmeal or just a bagel with cream cheese... read more

Recently visited the Belmont university location, for our third and last time. Service was awful and lunch was down right bad. Roast beef sandwich on old marble rye bread consisted of 1 slice of buttery coated dry roast beef and one slice of cheddar cheese. We ordered three bagels to go uncut and in a bag to go , and...

I prefer strong bold coffee and while the coffee here was OK, it was weaker than I like. However, they offer the usual drinks and flavors along with bagels and pastries. Nice large seating area on the ground floor of the Omni.

Bongo is my regular coffee shop, and my best friend and I love this place. The Bongo Basic - two eggs, hashbrowns, toast and a cup of coffee for $6 - just can't be beat! And the oatmeal is wonderful too! Bongo has many loyalists and regulars, which contribute greatly to its charm. Don't expect anything too fancy, though. Bongo... More

I went to the Bongo Java in the Omni Hotel while attending a four day conference. I really liked the coffees I got there (four times I had a vanilla latte). It would however take a while to get my coffee (maybe 15 minutes) in the mornings when it was busy. The first time I didn't realize this of course... More

Being from the Northwest the mochas we had at the Omni hotel location did not meet our coffee expectations. The Mochas were overpriced, bitter and weak although they contained 4 shots. I would have rather had a Starbucks coffee, which would be our last choice for Seattle coffee choices. The in room coffee was better than this place.

Stopped in here on recommendations from locals. Even though the outside is currently under construction, the inside has a cool and funky atmosphere. Got an excellent latte and the hummus plate was delicious. Stop in if you're in the area; it's a great place to relax.

It's been one of my favorite coffee shops for years! When my wife and I last went on our honeymoon, it was great again!

Cute place across from Belmont - mochahontas was out of this world as was the Indian latte. Didn't try any food so can't review- will definitely go back- only saw on street parking so a little difficult to find a spot- quite crowded as it is literally across the street from Belmont

Latte was lukewarm and over-milked. Toast was not fully toasted. Table was sticky. I'm not a complainer, but this was not impressive.
