There was a desperate requirement for coffee and breakfast before we got on the train. Zeitgeist is jus around the block from King St Station and has good coffee and a nice breakfast roll. Good inclusive ideals too :)

A super coffee shop and cafe. Really nice decor, great range of drinks and food, good value, friendly staff. Independent and well worth the visit. We became repeat customers during our stay in Seattle.

Zeitgeist is right in pioneer square with a bright open space with lots of seating to work or catch up with friends. Their coffee drinks are delicious and unpretentious- and they also have an assortment of sandwiches and pastries.
