Seattle Coffee at its best

Look no further for the ultimate Seattle espresso experience. Vita offers the Kyoto cold brew, which is a must-try when in Seattle. Friendly vibe, and just the right amount of grunge. Love this place.

Like everyone else visiting Seattle I had to go to the original Starbucks but actually when it comes to coffe shops this is the must visit place, if you are looking for great coffe and not just tourist attraction coffe, Caffe Vita is delisious, roasted to perfection.

One of my favorite places to get coffee or pastries or even specialty coffee drinks on the hill! I definitely recommend coming here for coffee or a dirty chai or even hot chocolate, as well as getting one of their delicious chocolate croissants. Definitely one of the best places to get coffee in CH!

This is a great little spot for espresso just a couple of blocks off Broadway. You order at the counter. They have a dozen or so tables inside and several out on the sidewalk. While standing waiting for the barista to make your drink you can peek through the big doors next to you to where they are roasting beans... More

And the staff is super friendly and helpful - this is the best cup of coffee you will have in Seattle and the pastries are totally yummy! We wish we could have breakfast here everyday back home in Boston!!

They know how to make a perfect latte. I took mine to go, but it had a nice atmosphere. Very friendly service, too.

Cafe Vita brings us coming back to capital hill even if it just for a cup of coffee after visiting somewhere else downtown. For me, this is one of the definitive Seattle/capital hill places to check out. Caffe is great, outstanding beans roasted fresh on site, the drip is all French pressed, and if you like ice coffee you must... More

Went to nearby Paseo Caribbean to get a sandwich and swung by Caffe Vita. I liked the atmosphere, but the latte surprised me more. I am not a heavy coffee drinker, but the latte was smooth, roasted just right, and still full of favors. It is the best latte I ever had!!

I went to the Wilson Avenue location near Seward Park. The service was great, the green tea that I had was perfect, and the wi-fi worked great. Overall, a great experience.

My husband and I did a self-guided coffee shop walking tour around the city in search of our new favorite beans to brew at home. The Capitol Hill location was one of our many stops. He enjoyed their brew of the day, Guatemala Finca Nuevo Vinas blend, the most of all we tried. The coffee was definitely bold and flavorful... More
