“Excellent coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Great quality coffee and excellent space to hang out. Get there early if you want a parking spot or be prepared to pay! They take their coffee seriously here. Excellent.

“A Little Slice of Seattle!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Okay, I'm from Seattle and a self-confessed coffee snob. I'm one of those people who think Starbucks is "factory coffee," that's suitable only as a last resort.

So, I don't normally buy coffee anywhere unless I sense they have what it takes.

CoffeeBar could easily make a case in Seattle. It has a "hip" sort of vibe with cool baristas, and ambiance.

Of course, the coffee had to be good and it was. They took their time and made it correctly. They had some pretty decent coffee art as well in the foam.

They served food as well and I had a panini of sorts. It was very good.

Plenty of locals there (we were obviously from out of town, but were treated well just the same).

Several folks kicked back shooting the breeze, some students doing homework, and people like us just looking to get a solid cup of coffee.

Definitely would come back.

“Yummy Italian lattes and tasty crepes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Yum!  I loved this little coffee shop. There is not a lot of parking but it is worth finding a spot and walking there. Staff are super friendly. I had a latte and breakfast crepe.  The latte was served hot and had a beautiful flower in the foam.  The crepe had a fried egg, prosciutto, and cheese with a side of sriracha. They also have outlets and wifi. Outdoor seating is available but we sat inside.

“local town meeting spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

If you want to find a local...stop in the Coffee Bar. This is the spot locals meet and have meetings. It is both a gathering place and a jumping off place...heading out on a bike ride...meet at CoffeeBar. Excellent little Bites and GREAT coffee!
Parking Lot is TINY so park on the street it is not worth trying to get in and out of the lot.
