    Love it! Great place to settle in and work. Open late. Not too crowded. Wifi, outlets, books, and bathrooms. What else could you want?

    I came here for a late night work session. Solid cup of coffee and a great upstairs area, where the people are quiet and the wifi is strong. Got a dusty but charming library vibe.

    I don't know the whole coffee selection here but my fav choice is always a good iced latte anywhere I go, and I just sipped a tall glass of the best ever. Get it!

    Great coffee, free wifi, a chill place to work on a nice day. Not feeling the super dark interior of the indoor area though

    Love the new location (in the old Capitol Club). Sitting out on the balcony on a sunny day can't be beat.

    Don't expect the nicest, most sunshine-y staff in town. These are typical Seattleites behind the counter. Still a great shop that I frequent whenever I can. Great crowd, too

    Best vanilla soy latte I've had in a long time! Great study spot as well. If you are studying with laptop, you may have to fight for an electrical outlet.

    This bookstore and café has giant mahogany shelves of old volumes collected from library sales (reachable with a sliding ladder) and monthly screenings of films.

    Best Americano I've ever tasted. Turns out Americanos are only terrible made in the UK by people who don't know how to make them :P

    The chai latte is perfect except on the hottest days of the year. At that time, enjoy a kool-aid like you're a kid again!

    Great view and coffee but music choice is totally crap for a coffee shop. Please pick better genres.
