This place is truly phenominal, as is the free trade, fresh coffee. I did not feel rushed, as in some other coffee places, and even though the "sit around space" is not as "cool" as others, it is relaxing and not noisy. I've been to this shop so many times, and they always have a new coffee bean they've roasted right there. The baristas are well informed and know exactly which coffee to recommend based on my description of what I am looking for. I have never been disappointed. All those other reviews are years old. This shop is definitely worth experiencing now!
A nice stroll on a Saturday on greenwood laned us here. Its a writers haven with backrooms and a deck. Its a little girls fantasy with a case of daily handmade chicolate who's ingredients take chocolate to a new standard. chocolate drinks. chocolate smells that seduces the strongest of us. local imagination at its finest. someone go there and mail me some! post office across the street! best book store in town with open mics and readingd across the street.
This is the most amazing coffeehouse I've visited. Move over all the snob coffee shops, this one has heart and soul. The coffee was the best in Seattle (Hotwire received best coffeeshop in West Seattle last year) and the staff are very friendly. You receive FREE Internet surfing too. Cute coffeeshop, great outdoor patio! It's tiny and busy but worth the trip to a wonderful coffeehouse with REAL people and GREAT coffee.
The food is pretty good. They have a large selection of things to choose from but the one thing that I really don't like about the place is that it follows UW's bureaucratic trends. The little rules posted throughout the restaurant make you feel as if you need a timer to eat there. Apparently they aren't aiming to be the place to hang out and work...
Shortstop is a hidden gem that can't be missed because of it's giant coffee cup on top of the building. It's a great place to meet a friend or take a quick break from your ride on the Burke Gilman trail on your way to the Ballard Locks. Awesome coffee and great service!!! Check it out!
I always think the Starbucks stores with the fireplaces are the best and this one has a warm fireplace with nice cushy seats right next to it so go cuddle up with a hot latte and stay warm this winter.
Love this little shop. Great doughnuts... cute patio. Everyone always shows up for coffee with their laptops. Not crazy about the coffee... but a great little morning excursion.
Enjoyed visiting this location as it is the first Starbucks. Very friendly and efficient staff. Enjoyed our cafe latte with almond milk and matcha latte! Worth the small wait.
Everybody here is friendly all of the time. Kinda weird, but I'm getting used to it. The third time I was here, they asked my name and use it everytime. wow.
Not your everyday Starbucks. This place is a flagship store. Everything is roasted to order. It's Starbucks meets Nordstroms. A must for a coffee in Seattle.
