Our Favorite Coffee Shops in Seattle

I had the pleasure of checking out some of Seattle's top coffee shops. Here's a list of some of my favorites.  

1.  Ada's Technical Books and Cafe

425 15th Ave E Seattle, WA 98112

A small cafe nestled in a bookstore. Ada's was one of my favroites for a great shot of espresso and a snack (pop tart anyone).  This was a recommendation from John (owner of Steelhead Coffee Shop).  Must see little shop in Capitol Hill with great coffee and dope books.  More info


2.  Herkimer Coffee

7320 Greenwood Ave N Seattle, WA 98103

Located in the Phinney Ridge neighborhood these guys have been around the block a few times.  Established in 2003 they have wisdom and their coffee speaks wonders.  Down to earth people that know their shit.  Not too far from Downtown this Seattle staple has some amazing coffee.  More info



3.  Milstead & Co

900 N 34th St Seattle, WA 98103

You can find these Barista champions in Fremont across from the Aurora Bridge.  They're a multi-roaster which is a fancy way of saying they carry a few different rosters from other cities.  I had a nice espresso but the baked goods weren't too hot.  Nice and lively baristas working there.  More info


4.  La Marzocoo Café & Showroom

472 1st Ave N Seattle, WA 98109

If I lived in Seattle I would be at this coffee and music sanctuary 24/7.  Arguably my favorite out of all due to the public radio DJ music, La Marzocoo espresso machines, and great selection of rotating coffee roasters from around the world.  It's truly a special place that you must see.  More info 


5.  Elm Coffee Roasters

240 2nd Ave S Seattle, WA 98104

Down in the thick of everything lives Elm Coffee Roasters.  It's kinda of hard to find but once you do the coffee shop is immaculate.  The natural lighting and aesthetic are well thought out and executed perfectly.  The coffee is great too. ;) More info


6.  Analog Coffee

235 Summit Ave E Seattle, WA 98102

Straight up great coffee from these guys.  A local roaster sent me here and told me that this is one of his favorite shops.  Located in Capitol Hill it's literally a hike to get up here but if you want great service, kick ass coffee, and room to take care of business this is your shop. Record player music and vintage Federal mugs. More info


7.  Victrola Coffee Roasters

310 E Pike St Seattle, WA 98122

Located up in Capitol Hill as well these guys roast and serve their own coffee.  Solid espresso and beauitful coffee shop.  Not too much more to say about them.  Check em' out.  More info


8.  Broadcast Coffee Roasters

6515 Roosevelt Way NE Seattle, WA 98115

Located north of Downtown Broadcast Coffee Roasters have a few shops throughout the city.  Very pleasant baristas and great coffee.  They roast their own coffee and the Kenya I had was super tasty.  More info


9.  Cafe Ladro

801 Pine St Seattle, WA 98101

Several locals mentioned Cafe Ladro to me and told me it was a must.  The cafe was stunning and their coffee was magical.  Great blend for their espresso.  Stop by, it's worth it.  More info
