Not super high quality coffee. They don't offer a pour-over for instance. Friendly service. Tastey treats. Overall very good, but not amazing.

Caffe Ladro is one of Seattle's original purveyors of craft coffee. It has never lost its charm or its quality. The location on California is cozy, fairly spacious and great place to meet friends or day a little work break over a great espresso.

Very comfortable and easy place to drop in and top off on my caffeine fix. They guys were friendly and efficient. They also have chairs out front if you just want to watch the world go by. They have food if that mid day groan comes from your tummy too!

Although this is my neighborhood stop and I've been drinking good coffee here for years, when they go through changes in personnel, it becomes inconsistent. Today I watched with disgust as the barista swept the floor, shook out the big rubber floor mat and handled money, while wearing a single blue plastic glove and then served customer after customer with...

We wandered into this quaint little coffee shop in the late afternoon and were surprised with half-off pastries, which we took advantage of for an afternoon treat and also breakfast for the following morning in our vacation rental house. The coffee cake and scone were obviously not as good as they would have been fresh, but they still tasted good... More

I live right across the street from Ladro and head there almost every morning for my favorite cup of soy caramel machiatto. The people are so friendly!

If you are visiting Seattle, Caffe Ladro should definitely be on your list of places to try. The coffee is delicious. We love it so much that we brew it at home as well (Queen Anne blend is our favorite for drip coffee). All of their signature drinks that we've tried have been great. I normally drink a latte or...
