For your coffee happiness!
We at BaristaBarFly have attempted to offer you a simple online
guide to unique coffee expereinces found in Seattle WA. Or, just to locate a new place to reward yourself at the beginning or end of a hard day.. Cool eh?


Note: There are MANY coffee locations in downtown Seattle! - these are our picks ...for today.

Caffe Ladro. -Fremont. (multi-locations)
(206) 675-0854
452 N 36th Street, Seattle, WA 98103
Hours: Everyday: 5:30 AM - 11 PM.
This business simply serves great coffee. Always deep and strong... perfect. They own a bakery and produce some of the best coffee shop baked goods ever...perfect combo with their great espresso. I feel like a fly to a light bulb around Caffe Ladro.

Row House Cafe.
(206) 682-7632
1170 Republican Street Seattle, WA 98109
Step into three old-school houses that are blended together ...trimmed out nicely with a country decor, great coffee, gracious staff, and perfectly prepared food! The Row House is an oasis of old country charm in the middle of all that condo / apt / mulit-use buildings stuff populating most of south Lake Union area. A refresing taste of country living. Just a bit expensive but worth it. OUTDOOR SEATING!

Zoka Coffee Roasters. Boren St. (multi-locations)
(866) 965-2669
351 Boren Ave North Seattle, WA 98109
Zoka and I go way back and everytime I visit there is parking (they have a big corner lot) and seats to quickly get into business with little delay. Perfect spot to meet for off-site, on-the-fly business discussion and the coffee is great. Pastries and chocolate too. Keep these guys in mind when sharing that next great idea.
