General Porpoise is where to spend a nice day inside without missing out on the sun. Massive windows let in an insane amount of light into the space, which you really only can describe as cute (case in the point: the hot pink espresso machine). More importantly, the homemade filled doughnuts will blow your mind (get the lemon curd). It’s also a nice change of pace that the coffee is sourced from places other than Seattle. Just be warned - General Porpoise closes at 3pm every day, so plan your doughnut-eating accordingly.

Espresso Vivace

We avoid superlatives, but Vivace probably makes the best espresso in the city. Hit the Capitol Hill location for its proximity to Sunrise Tacos.

The Conservatory

The Conservatory is a weird little coffee shop in Georgetown with brick walls, pokèmon-themed latte specials, bookcases, and vintage decorations.
