Stopped by waiting on our bus towards Portland. I had their chai tea latte which was quite flavorful and nicely spiced and with that their pumpkin spice mini pie. Not loving so much all the powdered sugar on top of it but the pastry itself was pretty good. Good stop for a quick snack or breakfast.

I stopped by here on a walk looking for something to eat. Because of that, I didn't buy the Peet's coffee they offered. I did get an egg, cheese and veggie croissant. It was delicious, and cold (the egg was hard-boiled, which initially surprised me), and the black bottom chocolate muffin had a nice crispy ring around it - it... More

if you don't want to stand in line, you can self-order or you can order online. Pick up your pastry or order from the kitchen and you will be alerted when it's ready. Very efficient place. Sit at a counter, a table, on a couch or in front of the fire.

Good location for a wonderful breakfast sandwich. The coffee was great, staff was very friendly and the sweet pastries smelled too good to resist.

Got some Clam chowder, toasts and sallad. All good. And the coffee was also really great. The service swift and pleasant. A nice place to relax a little while from the crowd of the city.

The food was decent --but the service was slow. This is one of those places where you place your order and they give you a buzzer that lights up when your food is ready --They were not very busy when we got there but it seemed like the food took forever --and it was warm but not hot when we...

We had breakfast here recently and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere the service from the staff and the food. The croissants were delicious and the coffee freshly made and equally enjoyable.

We stumbled across Specialties when we were looking for a quick bite to eat at lunch time after we arrived in Seattle. We had a sandwich and soup, both were tasty and enjoyable. The venue also had a pleasant atmosphere. It did however seem a little pricey.

I met a friend here for lunch at her suggestion, and thoroughly enjoyed it! They have a large salad & sandwich menu, you can modify them to your preference, and it had a surprisingly large seating area. the food we ordered was fresh and tasted great. They have an awesome selection of treats as well, including some wonderful chocolate chip... More
