There are many, many more small, local coffeehouses all over the city but these were the ones that we spent a few hours at and wanted to highlight for those of you looking for fresh, local coffee with a free, WiFi enabled work-space.
Part of a small local chain, this one had great coffee and plenty of indoor and outdoor seating space even though it was pretty busy when we got there. Typically they have free WiFi but unfortunately it wasn’t working for the entire neighborhood the morning we stopped in so we couldn’t stay long.
The most intriguing coffeehouse we visited and I think I’d call it my favorite even though it was quite busy and when it started raining, it seemed to turn into more of a daycare than a relaxing work-space. Could use a few more places to plug in but the inside seating area has plenty of fun, devilish, Mexican decor and one of the two outside seating areas was actually covered so even in the rain, you could still be outside to enjoy the fresh air.
A super cute, quiet, relaxing coffeehouse that is located right along N 36th Street and is an old house, converted into a coffeehouse. Definitely a popular spot as it had a decent line the entire time we were there but probably the best one on this list for anyone looking for coffee and a quiet place to concentrate.
We happened upon this place by accident while walking down under Pike Place to check out the gum wall. Tucked in the corner under the stairs, this place only had a couple small tables but offers some unique coffee drinks like the London Smog – a latte made with Earl Grey Tea and the Salted Nut Caramel Hazelnut latte.
A tiny little coffee shop run by a few crazy hipsters :) They told us to say that, really! You have to look for it or you’ll miss it. It’s a super small coffeehouse next to Wright Park with free WiFi and only about 7 places to sit on the inside.
Now this one is a good distance outside Seattle up in Snoqualmie Pass but has great coffee drinks and also my favorite breakfast! Very new to the scene, it has some really unique backwoods decor and serves up a good-sized, delicious breakfast burrito for just $4.
