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.

We trekked from downtown to Capitol Hill to try out this coffee and it was completely worth it! After hearing a lot about Vivace from people we know (also Emeril Lagasse calls it his favorite), we felt it definitely lived up to the hype. Really cute and big coffee shop with lots of personality. The baristas are friendly, although a... More

Cant go wrong here. Mocha and Latte are fantastic, but you need to try the espresso to get the full experience of what coffee should be. It is the coffee equivilant of a fine wine - there are so many subtile flavors that come out when coffee is done like Vivace does it.
