    The spot for 3rd wave coffee in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle. Rotating coffees from the nation's top toasters. Brewed coffee program focuses on Aeropress methods.

    A @pandadoodie found fact via the barista in the Mariners hat: pastries come from two places, Macrina Bakery and La Toscanella. Ask them and they'll confirm where your pastry was "born" if you care.

    Love this place—coffee, atmosphere, service, they have it all! 1 issue: lap tops take up most of the seats, which isn't their fault, but you'll need luck finding places to sit. Good luck!

    Nice spot to work at or for a coffee/tea break. Great americano as well as the turmeric tonic tea. They have a few pastries.

    If you're patient and resourceful you can find a couple of hidden utility outlets on the outdoor patio. Between that and the lovely coffee you'll be thoroughly fueled for the morning.

    Great place. Amazing coffees. Coava, Stumptown & Intelligentsia. Check out the Theo super dark mocha, bitter but you can add a bit of vanilla. Cool vibe and nice people.

    Good coffee. ☕️Normally I go for a cappuccino but in this case for the special brew of the day. WiFi. Plugs. Enough space for all coffee and Internet + cool vibe seekers.

    Get the milk chocolate mocha or vanilla latte! Dark chocolate was a tad too bitter even for my taste, and I generally love 70% dark chocolates.
