Vivace Espresso Bar

100% love it
A beautiful cup of coffee
Skip Starbucks because Vivace serves up some of the best coffee in Seattle, and is conveniently located in the heart of the gay Capitol Hill neighborhood. You're likely to find some cute coffee sippers come through if you hang around.


    • Another Rave Review for Vivace!
      A neighborhood standard for locals and students. I told the baristas I was in town for just 1 day before my gay Alaska cruise and they were very helpful in suggesting restaurants, clubs, … Creamy, perfectly prepared latte… and try their slow roasted blend – they take their coffee very seriously in Seattle and I quickly understood how this place has stood the test of time. And the expansive open air seating overlooking Broadway made for a perfect Saturday afternoon. If I lived in Seattle, you would see me here about every weekend.

      The real Seattle coffee experience
      This place has the best coffee in town, and the best baristas as well, most of whom have been there YEARS, and will recognize you no matter how long it's been since your last visit. Make this something not to miss while you're in town. Oh yeah, it's also a great place to see and be seen.

      For serious coffee drinkers
      I went to Vivace on a recent trip to Seattle after hearing about it from some real coffee addicts. Their advice payed off - this is some of the best coffee (outside of SF of course :] ) I've ever had. And super cute guys there!
