If you are from Seattle, you that the city’s reputation of having good coffee on every block is absolutely true — and this is a characteristic of the city that we are totally okay with. Neither of us would call ourselves a “coffee snob,” but yes, we know what good coffee is, and yes, we appreciate it. So this week, we’re rounding up a few of our favorite spots.
Elm Coffee Roasters (Pioneer Square) Located in one of our favorite parts of downtown, this shop has amazing coffee, a beautiful space, and really well done branding. What more could you ask for?
Milstead & Co (Fremont) This is a coffee shop we need to see more of. They make a great latte (of course) and offer plenty of indoor and outdoor seating to sit and enjoy it.
Victrola Coffee Roasters (Capitol Hill) If we’re looking for a spot to spend an hour or two working, this is one of our first picks. There’s plenty of space to set up — and when it’s nice out and they’ll open up the front walls, letting in some sun and allowing for great people watching.
Storyville Coffee Company (Downtown) Storyville has a few locations in Seattle, but the one just above Pike Place Market is our favorite. It offers views of the Sound, consistently great coffee, and a break from the busy market below.
Slate Coffee Bar (Ballard) We haven’t had a chance to visit this shop yet, but it’s next on our list. We’ve heard only good things about the coffee and atmosphere — and the fact that the coffee comes in wine glasses means it must be great.
Any local spots that we’re missing out on?
