    If you're not feeling like coffee, you're still in the right place. From their Chai to their specialty drinks like this summers "Bloody Matador" you'll never have to settle for a bland experience.

    Beautiful cafe with delicious coffee roasted by Kuma coffee and 49th Parralel. The art on the walls are wonderful! The cafe even staffs a curator for the art! (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Local Seattle coffee bar sells 49th Parallel espresso from Kitsilano-based roaster from Vancouver, BC - cool beans! Take home a bag.

    Ask the barista about the rotating coffees they run on the clover and pick the one that sounds the most interesting and try to taste for all the cupping notes. Enjoy it, coffee sweetens as it cools.

    Sunny shotgun style building with high ceilings makes it a nice place to bang out some work or have a quick meeting over some great coffee.

    Dislike: cheese croissant w/ sour cream,cheese and cranberries: perfect for typical Main Street style hipster, vegan options: a boring muffin.Like: expresso, methods of payment (square)

    Try the Esmerelda Geisha from Panama, if they have it. Crazy delicious!

    Charming manager and staff who make top notch brews. They have a proposal for a sidewalk patio area that will hopefully go through soon!

    Named after the iconic East German car. The cappuccino is strong and buzz-inducing.

    Trabant Coffee & Chai is a smart stop for an espresso or picking up a bag of 49th Parallel Espresso like their Brazil roast - often available as seasonals. For cool day decadence, get a Mexican Mocha. Read more
