In Post Alley by the gum wall and underneath where they throw the fish around is this neighborhood gem. Tiny shop with many excellent coffee drinks and friendly service. They roast their own coffee to perfection!

While roaming Pike Place Market, we stumbled upon this cute little coffee shop. I know everyone thinks the original Starbucks when in Seattle, but that's like going to the original McDonald's and waiting 4 hours for the same hamburger you can get anywhere else. So...More

tucked up under, hole-in-the-wall place that served the BEST latte we have found, hands down! We have traveled from southern Oregon to Canada searching for the best coffee & boy is this place a charm! Fancy leaf print in my foam, excellent balance of warmth!

Located underneath the iconic "Public Market Center" sign, in Lower Post Alley, this espresso shops offers organic espresso roasted by MiddleFork Roasters. Popular drinks include the Salted Nut Latte and Mystery Mocha. A variety of milks are served. Drinks are unique and often combine tea and espresso. There are a few seats both inside and outside of the shop but a customer would enjoy most grabbing a drink to go, a map, some useful advice about the Market and then set out to explore the Pike Place Market. Open every day.
