Let me tell you a story. Long time ago, you know in the pre Starbucks expansion era, like way back in the early 90's, I developed a taste for coffee, especially espresso. I turned several of my business friends on to the magic of a perfectly poured Seattle style latte. They were hooked. So we got smart. We pooled our... More

Great bakery items and a delicious latte. Take it to-go and go for a stroll down the street. Also a great place to plug in and do some work, or charge up your phone!

I went for the White Velvet during my visit. So delicious. One of the best coffees I've ever had. They have a good selection of cookies and snacks as well.

Espresso is bold, buttery with hints of chocolate. Roll espresso across your tongue to appreciate its fullness and complex flavors. We enjoyed their coffee beans so much, that we purchased a bag to take home. This is after visiting several other coffee shops in the Seattle area.

The coffee here is some of the best you will find in the city. The atmosphere at Vivace is also really nice. It's a good place to meet with friends. The "quiet" room is also great.

First off, the barista yelled us to stand the other end when there are only two customers at cash resister. After we placed an order, he let the receipt fall on the counter and hand gestured good bye with his left hand. Other young lady barista looked nervous and we locked our eyes with "question". We have never seen such... More

Great baristas, good coffee and fine pastry. It has a large space where you can sit, relax and read while drinking your coffee.

Had Latte Soy (4.75) and Apple Turnover (3.75) for breakfast this morning. It was quiet, cosy and there is a "glass room" if you could like to have your private conversations. I like what I ordered. Quite a lot of choices for breakfast; for a cafetaria.

Vivace is my favorite place to go for a delicious mocha. This location is towards the north end of Broadway on Capitol Hill. On nice days they open the "door". There is indoor and outdoor seating. If you love coffee I highly recommend a visit

Had the Macchiato- was very reasonably priced and a good cup of expresso. Nice relaxed atmosphere and friendly people.
