Without a doubt, the best I've ever had, amazing artwork as well! White velvet latte. They make designs in the cup, a leaf for me, a heart for the bf. Smoothest latte ever

Coffee here is a warm, delicious drug! As soon as you take a sip from your latte, it will rule your life, I kid you not. I had 4 cups in 3 hours. I stopped by here for about 3 hours during a visit to Seattle recently. They have a very welcoming staff and majority of the crowd / customers... More

Wow. Every time that I come here, I am blown away. I am happy to say that I bought my family. My son asked what purpose there was for Starbucks, when there was something this delicious. The coffee is excellent, and the designs in the coffee are really fun too. Thank you Vivace!

Couldn't possibly ask for anything more from a cafe. Fantastic drinks, good breakfast pastry and donut selections, and very friendly, artful staff. Lived the raspberry donut and the white velvet. I have no idea what was in it buy it was delectable.

Seattle is a city of very good coffee. It is very easy to find and plentiful. But I must confess my coffee addiction is really satisfied at Vivace. They have several location around the city. Several locations on Broadway and one across the street from the REI flagship store.

Staff is always so nice and the coffee is smooth. Nice selection of bakery goods too. Try the caffe latte, with vanilla

It's 9pm, and you need a coffee.. Where do you go?! Head to Vivace! There are a lot of options there: from cappuccinos to hot chocolate. The shop had ample seating and places to plug your electronics in. Best coffee in Seattle. Hand down.

I'm pretty spoilt, being a Melbournian. I love my espresso coffees and I am very picky about my coffee even when I travel. I travel with an aeropress and my own ground coffee. However, I am *always* pleased to be traveling through Seattle because it means I get to come here and get a Cafe Nico. The service is always... More

I've been reliably informed that this is the best coffee in Seattle. I've certainly had nothing to top it yet. Well crafted, a delicious roast, smooth and velvety. If I find a better coffee, even in this caffeinated paradise, I'll be surprised.

Wandered into Espresso Vivace and what a delight! The barista was an artist! The double cappuccino was not only delicious it was expertly presented. Have your coffee there for the full experience. Was disappointed we didn't make it back before we left.
