Sippin in Seattle's latte land- the coffee capital of the world awaits you! The holidays are here again, and it's the perfect time to try out a new coffee shop. Cozying up in one of these spots with my favorite brewed beverage, somehow makes the rainy season more bearable.
The list for interesting and unique coffee shops in the "Emerald City" are endless. It would take months, or maybe even years to visit them all. It sounds like a great challenge for all of us who love coffee! I would love to travel the globe in search of the best coffee houses.
One the first things I do upon arrival in a new city, is to scope out the coffee shop scene. I have several on my radar that I frequent in certain cities. Fortunately I didn't have to travel far from home to grab a cup a jo at these
3 Unique Coffee Shops in the Seattle Area:
1) Espresso Buono:
I was so excited to get my shopping over so I could go check it out! Ha yes I love coffee as much as I do shopping! Espresso Buono did not disappoint. It has to be the cutest place ever to grab coffee. Ambience, art, and coffee all under one roof.
The interior is so darling and inviting. The espresso stand is in the front and a small hallway leads to
the back room. You can cozy up by the fireplace with your favorite brew, read a book, and listen to live music.
I highly recommend a visit here. The customer service was flawless, and the coffee was too! Penny , the owner, is a delight and has a very inspiring story. She is a retired educator, and musician. She loves to support the arts in the community by encouraging others to chase their dreams. Read more of her story here.
2) The Pouslbohemian:
The Poulsbohemian coffee house is located on the Kitsap peninsula, a short ferry ride away from Seattle. Poulsbo is a 15 minute drive from the Kingston ferry, or you can drive around through Tacoma.
In between the barber shop and the Poulsbohemian is the most beautiful view and seating area. You might have to get in line for a seat facing Liberty Bay, just breathtaking!
For the overcast and cooler days, there is plenty of seating inside with huge windows to take in the view. The shop is located on the main drag of this northwest town with a European vibe. Poulsbo is an amazing small town to visit, a little bit of Norway in Washington State!
3) The Meowtropolitan
Coffee, cats, and the charm of Wallingford are all right here at the Meowtropolitan. This one is a cat lover's paradise. The first and only cat café in the emerald city. I am a life long cat lover, so when I heard this was opening I had to get there ASAP!
I know some of you are thinking: Yuck! - I don't want to be served any fur with my coffee! No worries, the cafe is separate from the cattery. You can lounge in the coffee shop and enjoy the cats through the windows, or order your drink and take it inside the cat room.
I love the mission of this business: They are partnering with Regional Animal Services of King County (RASCK). All the cats are brought from the shelter and are available to adopt.
If you would like to reserve a time in the cat lounge , follow these 3 steps for a hassle free experience.
- Make a reservation online
- Come to the cafe and order your drink
- Check in with the cashier and proceed to the cat lounge
If you do not reserve a spot ahead of time, you can possibly get in on a cancellation.
The cost to enter the cattery area is ten dollars. The fee does include a drink of your choice and it helps fund the adoption of the animals. The time in the cattery is limited to an hour, so the cats don't get too overwhelmed.
I hope you enjoyed this short list of interesting coffee spots in Seattle. My goal is to find some more and expand on this post!
Have you visited any exceptional coffee shops lately? I would love to hear where they are! Thanks for stopping by.
