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

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

Caffe Vita is a local coffee establishment and have several shops around the city. I like CV coffee and think its flavorful. Depending on who brews the coffee, the flavor can be full and strong or diluted. I like the location, however parking is hard to find in this neighborhood and even harder if you drive a big car.
