Friendly interested staff, a variety of coffee and baked goodies. My first taste of Seattle coffee and I was impressed - not at all burnt and beautiful flavour. Has expanded over the years as clearly popular. Would definitely go again.

This is a popular breakfast spot in Seattle, with a good selection of baked goods, coffees and teas. The line moves quickly, so do not be discouraged. The baked goodies are the highlight, with fresh fruit tarts, vegetarian egg croissants, chocolate almond croissants, ham and...More

Very poor service and burnt coffee. We were ignored and were served rotten coffee. I wouldn't return.
