I saw Citizen Coffee and was intrigued with the name and the food and coffee was pretty good, too. I’d suggest going and taking a paper or book with you—not that it takes long, but you might want to linger.

Don't be put off from the outside. Venture in for great food and coffee. Our server Keanu was great. I had caramelised apple and cheese crepe .... lush! The farmers breakfast too was delicious. Can't wait to go again.

In town for a long weekend after many years away from Seattle, we were seeking convenient, interesting breakfast/brunch spots and were very happy we tried Citizen. It was a Sunday and fairly full but no waiting, the menu is eclectic and spans sweet and savory...More

Good coffee and crepes, quick service near the Space Needle. Will stop there again if near Seattle Center. Breakfast lasagna very good also.

This is the kind of place that makes me think of everything the NW is known for--creative yet familiar, edgy but casual, with great coffee and easygoing atmosphere. The menu is full of creative infusions which apparently change over time. When I went, there was...More
