While Seattle is probably best known for Starbucks, at least on the West Coast it is known for its great coffee scene. We’ve looked around before but haven’t committed to a city-wide coffee search. At least this trip we got a bit of a better idea what’s going on by searching out some of Seattle’s better-known coffee spots.
Caffe Ladro has multiple locations throughout Seattle, and we went to the downtown location on Pine St during our Saturday am food tour. Located in an architecturally-distinct tower from the 1960’s (I’m guessing), the ground floor location has a very distinct look but gets lots of light and has a very peaceful feel inside.
Service was friendly and fast. I had a latte – and it was certainly very good. Probably if I want to be a purist, I should be ordering ristrettos and offering tasting notes – but my palate isn’t that refined, and so all I’m looking for is a good place to read a book, get a tasty latte, and relax. Caffe Ladro is just fine for all 3 – drop by any time.
