I stopped by to pick up a couple of items for a quick Thursday morning breakfast. It's a very convenient location in downtown Seattle. They had a relatively meager choice of breakfast sweets to choose from, but what they had was delicious. The dine in...More

My first time in a specialty’s cafe was in the Bay Area and there are also several outposts here in Seattle. This one has lots of seating and lunch, I always target the delicious and buttery cookies and brownies.

Located down the street from the Sheraton, we went here at the recommendation of the hotel concierge. The black bottom muffin was a delicious substitute because the person in front of me bought the last 6cinnamon buns which looked amazing. The coffee was delicious-no burnt...More

I really like this place. It is in a good, central location in downtown Seattle, which makes it easy to pop in for some food or treats. The restaurant is much larger than most of the other coffee shops in town, so there will almost...More
