Fabulous independent roasters with an excellent barista and welcoming front of house. Had two cappuccino’s both smooth and silky. Shame I am leaving today as this would be my go to coffee destination in Seattle

Great specialty coffee served here.. In general, I like the atmosphere. Sometimes gets too busy and sometimes it gets quiet.

If you are a coffee nerd this is a great place to sample a pour over or well made drink. The scone with jam is also addictive! It can get a little busy at times but I enjoy the minimalist design and friendly service.

Really good coffee, cool looking place, good service. Probably the best coffee I tried in Seattle. You can also buy bags of their coffee to take away.

Small and crowded. Very, very noisy. Straight coffee is high priced but then in downtown Seattle that's expected. Wifi access. Line is long during "go to work" time period. Close (2 blocks) to King Street station so a good place to kill time while waiting...More
