    Try the slow bar if you got some time! The barista talks through the coffee as they're brewing it fresh for you. Awesome experience and you can share the coffee!

    My @pandafoodie recommends ordering your latte "for here" then drink it slow. Enjoy the coffee. Very nice and smooth.

    They roast their own coffee and it is really good. This is craft coffee. Order something from the slow bar and you will get to sit and interact with them while they brew your coffee. Great experience.

    If you have time, order something from the Slow Bar. It's well worth it. Awesome selection of rare coffees from around the world.

    Amazing coffee program. Carve out some time to spend at the slow bar. Extremely knowledgeable staff proficient in all brew methods. Offering Direct trade single origin coffees roasted in house.

    The only place I get a Americano. The owner is slightly nutty in a good way. If you are lucky you can sit and over hear him wax on about his coffee philosophy to a potential s.c.w barista.

    This is one of Seattle's finest independent roasting coffee houses! Everything is good, and I've never had a bad experience here! Check it out if you're by the market!

    Try the single origin espresso; of different origin every week. Great way to train your palate to enjoy all the subtle flavors at beginning, middle & end of a sip! Neat connection to place.

    If you're from Portland the pour over seems expensive, but it's lovely and worth it. Best coffee close to the convention center by far.

    The cherry almond scone wasn't firm enough for my desire of what a scone texture should be. The latte was a step below spectacular, but definitely worth it

    Our favourite Seattle coffee place. New location is super airy and light but lacks comfy seating. Coffee still awesome though!

    The slow bar is a lot of fun - you can pick what you want to learn about, and they'll explain it and do a demo or two. BIG TIME coffee geeks work here!

    Andrew Zimmern tried coffee made by a $20,000 coffee maker, which can make the same coffee with different flavors. As seen on Bizarre Foods America.

    Bathrooms were solid, and the wifi worked well. A great place to blog or do work in the touristy Pike's Place area.

    A brilliant coffee shop with a siphon bar. Reminds you that there is more to a proper latte than Starbucks will ever attempt.

    Food blogger Denise of Wasabi Prime recommends Seattle Coffee Works. "You can get cups of single-origin beans and blends, or you can sample coffees in their dedicated ‘Slow Bar’/tasting room."

    Nice cozy shop with outlets along the wall but seating area will be cramped if it's busy.

    The decaf breve macchiato was ok. I had to go through the "real machiatto or starbucks" dance though, and I had to remind them about the breve part, and then they forgot to make idecaf.

    Very hit or miss. Some baristas are great, others are not. Coffee is not roasted that well, but it is the best choice for its location. (2 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more
