The best latte's and cappuccinos anywhere

Whenever I go to Seattle I make a point to go to Vivace. They know how to make latte's and cappuccinos as they should be made. I love Starbucks but they should take lessons from these people. You don't just foam up some milk and throw it on top of an espresso shot. Check Vivace out and see how... read more

The Hemp Milk Latte was luscious and rich and satisfying'. Great in a china cup marked beautifully in the foam. Great for conversation or working.

Best espresso in Seattle. Which is not saying the same thing as the best coffee in Seattle, but that's exactly the point.

the coffee is excellent and the baristas are competent. They should redesign their pastry cabinet…it seems sticky dirty. Sometimes the pastries don't move and they taste like it.

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.
