Across the street from Anchorhead's Pike Place location, you'll see a massive line snaking along the sidewalk for a certain coffee chain's "first" location that isn't even actually the original one. Skip the commercial chaos and head here instead for a great cup of drip, or a quality macchiato that doesn't contain caramel drizzle by default.
And if you prefer your caffeine cold, Anchorhead is the place to be. Burnt honey, cinnamon, oat milk, and cold brew combine to create one of the most refreshing iced coffees in town: the honey bunches of cold brew. And much like nature’s elements or the Teletubbies, you need all four for things to be just right. With a warm spiced kick, creamy oat milk, bracing cold brew, and caramelized sweetness, we could slurp that frosty creation all day, even well after the jitter-induced panic sets in. The cafe has other rotating seasonal beverages to explore as well, like mint-steeped nitro or cold brew swirled with homemade blueberry milk. If you’re not feeling coffee but are still looking to wake the f*ck up, the pistachio matcha latte tastes superb on the rocks.
