I lived in Seattle for 5.5 years and the world famous coffee scene there can help you get through a gloomy and wet winter. The best of the best is Vivace and I tried every place in town. Their style is to get the most flavor from the bean without any of the bitterness you taste from other roasters. They... More

Quick morning service with the best coffee latte I've ever had. The latte had minimal bitterness and a very smooth overall flavor. The cream flavor was also exceptional with something between half and half and whole milk. The pastries looked delicious too but I was on my way to breakfast so it will have to wait for next time.

It is challenging for me to say something that is not positive about my experience at Vivace because I love it so much... but...my last several visit the service has been (to put it gently) cool, Having been a waiter & bartender on and...

Whether you just like coffee or are super into it, Vivace is a top notch roastery. I have never had a latte as smooth and satisfying as from this place. I was blown away. Every time I visit the states, I make sure I come back with a bag of their beans; they're outstanding.

If you want a smooth and rich coffee experience - this is that place! no burnt - overheated - name spelled wrong whatever kind of place. Local. Amazing. Mostly consistent. I alternate between espresso to lattes 90% of the time. I like the taste of good coffee and do not want it ruined with other stuff. Coffee here? Don't need... More

Let me tell you a story. Long time ago, you know in the pre Starbucks expansion era, like way back in the early 90's, I developed a taste for coffee, especially espresso. I turned several of my business friends on to the magic of a perfectly poured Seattle style latte. They were hooked. So we got smart. We pooled our... More
