If you work downtown, there are very few options that don’t involve Starbucks, a sad corner market pastry, or sneaking into a hotel lobby to steal a continental breakfast. One of those options is Anchorhead. It’s technically a coffee shop, but if you’re in a hurry, you could sit down here with a mini banana bread loaf, biscuit sandwich, or the quite majestic “quaffle,” which is part-cinnamon roll, part-croissant, and part-waffle. Wash it all down with a pistachio milk matcha latte.

General Porpoise Coffee & Doughnuts
General Porpoise is a very cute coffee shop in Capitol Hill with some very good homemade donut holes.
We avoid superlatives, but Vivace probably makes the best espresso in the city. Hit the Capitol Hill location for its proximity to Sunrise Tacos.
For breakfast on the go in Belltown, go for a breakfast sandwich at Dahlia (there are only four seats there). And couple coconut cream pie bites.
