Cafe Torino is a tiny cafe serves Italian espresso, has great WiFi, and is pretty quiet all day - with the exception of coffee machine noises. It’s the perfect place in South Lake Union to get some work done without the fear of running into someone you know.

The seafood at 100 Pound Clam in South Lake is great. Just know you’ll be eating it next to a screaming two-year-old and a dad wearing Sperry’s.

Suggested by our writers
Bakery Nouveau is an excellent Capitol Hill bakery we like most for the twice baked almond croissant and croque monsieur.
Mr. West Cafe Bar
Mr. West Cafe is an attractive espresso bar and all day cafe with substantial food downtown.
We avoid superlatives, but Vivace probably makes the best espresso in the city. Hit the Capitol Hill location for its proximity to Sunrise Tacos.
