Storyville Coffee

Cafe in Downtown, Pike Place & Waterfront

There are so many coffee bars in Seattle that it’s sometimes hard to see the wood from the trees, unless it’s the kind of wood that adorns the curved bar of Storyville. Welcome to one of Seattle’s newer luxury coffee chains, whose two downtown locations (here and at the corner of 1st and Madison) attract a mixture of tourists and locals who are looking for excellent coffee.

The chocolate-chip cookies with salted centers are exceptional, as is the service; baristas happily chat to punters above the hiss and steam of their machines.
