    The apple Pullman and coconut macaroon are a perfect complement for a cup of coffee.

    An hour from close you get discounted bread! The poor grad student in me applauds.

    Warm coffee and Triple Chocolate Cookie are the perfect, delicious way to beat the gloominess of an overcast day :-)

    The sunnyside up salad is back, and worth every penny. Also: strike up a conversation with the employees. They're all really nice :)

    If you become the mayor, you get a free U-Bake pie to take home with you! It's really yummy!

    Be prepared to wait 15 minutes for your breakfast sandwich.

    Only one gluten free option on the entire menu and no wifi. You do know that you're a cafe in Seattle right? Lame.

    The Vegetarian Grinder is not to be missed. There might not be any meat but there's plenty of damn tasty flavor. Twice baked challah is delicious, as are the mini Leek/cheese quiches.

    Try the Grilled Cheese Sandwich With Ham - I get this all the time now. (via @Foodspotting)

    They brew Cafe Vita, which is delicious. Come in when they open and get a blueberry muffin or slice of fresh fruit coffeecake. They are the BEST when they are right out of the oven!

    I love this place but it takes a long time to get an espresso drink. Do yourself a favor and order the house coffee; it's cheaper and faster

    Their croissants are excellent - crispy, flaky, melt-in-your-mouth. I wish they carried more savory baked goods!

    Not a huge breakfast place but the solid ingredients always make it tasty. Good place to get breakfast and get some work done. Read more

    go up the street to voxx coffee instead - their espresso is better and you'll probably save time. 20 minutes for a latte at gcb is not worth it.

    Egg and toast is a simple yet tasty treat that's cheaper than a typical breakfast sandwich
