  • There's 2 lines, one is empty. Empower yourself to use that one!
  • Awesome mocha! TRY IT!
  • Try the Caffe Nico: a luxurious, orange-tinted breve.
  • They are open late (11pm) and have a separate room for quiet working or meetings. My choices here are either a creamy White Velvet or a Cafe Nico. Both are wonderful!
  • A white velvet always hits the spot! So good!
  • Caffe Soy = comforting goodness
  • Get the white velvet! Yum yum!
  • Customer service is not their thing.
  • The focus here is very specificno drip coffee, just espresso drinks made from arabica beans they have been roasting in the Northern Italian style since 1992.
  • What to Order: A straight shot of the Dolce espresso, of course. (The Vita is only used in drinks with milk and sugar.)
  • Favorite drink is White Velvet, but you can't go wrong with anything here. Also really like the ginger cider and Italian soda. The baristas are always friendly. Tip well!
  • Try the White Velvet - Made with melted Ghirardelli white chocolate chips, you'll never have a better white chocolate mocha. EVER.
  • Best coffee in Seattle. Order a plain old latte.
  • White velvet is the best
  • Great hearts on the foam; true artistry
  • Best coffee in seattle hands down!
  • Almond lattes for the win.
  • Best double tall latte ever. The foam is like fluffy clouds melting in your mouth.
  • Sidewalk table seating is nice on a sunny summer afternoon.
  • Get a cappuccino! Deliciously frothy and creamy
