The best latte in Seattle

I had a Caramel Latte. It was perfect. Not sweet, perfect foam & perfect temperature. I don't like my coffee overly sweet. It was the perfect balance.

During my first visit to Seattle I wanted to make sure I experienced a taste of the historic Seattle coffee culture. My first stop was Espresso Vivace's flagship café in Capitol Hill, Brix. Upon entering I asked the barrista what his favorite drink was and he quickly responded, "a macchiato - short and sweet." Indeed it was. Most macchiatos have... More

Coffee and pastry were very good and a really nice spot to enjoy a rainy morning in Seattle. It definitely seemed like an insider's place though - clearly a departure from the infamous Seattle chain. On the plus side - good quality and ambiance. On the con side - not a lot of parking (had to pay for street parking)... More

I've had 3 latte's today and when I stopped at Vivace Espresso and the first thing I noticed the cup was not a thin paper cup, it was sturdy, then when I tasted the latte, it had the right amount of foam and the flavor was perfect, I am happy. I spent money Ina great tasting drink.

When in Seattle we always stop at Espresso Vivace for coffee. It is simply the best. The design in cream is art.

The food's forgettable but the coffee is worth the trip. It's a coffee shop for the obsessed. Vivace cares about fine espresso drinks, the staff is well-trained, and you're not likely to be disappointed. We so like what they serve that we're using only Vivace coffee in our machine at home.

Ambiance in the cafe itself was very laid back and well set up for having great coffee and chatting. Our server Zak was.clearly well versed in coffee and made us delcious cups of the highly recommended Cafe... More
