Espresso by Design

Posted on 28 November 2012 by mattbaker

511 S Mead St
Seattle, WA 98108

Review -

This place caters solely to the business’s located around it. With two seats inside, if you can get one of them it is well worth the risk. A La Marzocco machine and a quality bean these guys make a great drink. Not only that, they also have quality lunches and a steady stream of friendly faces of people they know. If it was not for All City raising there prices, I would write these guys off, but a great alternative to have. They don’t have wireless internet to accommodate anyone who wants to work there, but they don’t need to. Noone is coming in to work. Great place to sit and have a conversation.

This was a tough place to find. It is tucked back into a business/apartment complex and has limited parking. The layout is a little funky, with the counter located at the most narrow part of the space. Although, since they did it that way it opens up the rest of the room for a amazing space to work and socialize. Not only is the first room awesome, the second room is equally amazing. This room is an art gallery with rotating art that compliments the store brilliantly. They have couches in the gallery to sit and look at the art, have a meeting, work and even use this room for open mics. They use a Simonelli machine and the coffee is average, but this place one my heart over. Really authentically friendly staff, cool gift selection, great food and a lot of spunk. If you want to get away from the hipster vibe of some of the other spots in SLC, this is your best bet.

Pure Fare

119 South 21st Street
Philadelphia, PA 19103

Review -

Half restaurant and half coffee shop this place rocks. With a small La Marzocco, Pure Fare has the care for the coffee and it shows in the flavor. My 8oz Latte order was corrected to actually be a “Cappuccino,” but they delivered a cup with beautiful color and taste. Not only do they rock a great cup, but the have some delicious foods that give you an all around great experience. Smoothies, salads, sandwiches and Burmese papaya salad make this a one stop shop of delicious. Not the greatest place to hang although the do have one giant table with some very addicting swivel seats, but cool enough to have lunch and move on.

Astoria Coffeehouse and Bistro

243 11th Street
Astoria, OR 97103

Review -

This is a hidden gem in the heart of the beat up downtown of Astoria. This bistro/coffee shop has delicious food and they care just as much as their coffee as they do about their food. Sporting a strong La Marzocco and a Stumptown bean they make a mean cup of coffee. I would not say this is the greatest place to hang out in Astoria. It is more of a sit and have brunch type of place, but a can’t miss on the coffee!

This is a cool looking place on the main strip in Cody. I had a fantastic Salad there, and their menu looked good, but the coffee was terrible. The machine they use, I have never seen and hope to never see again. The Coffee was ok considering the god awful machine and the place seemed like it might be a good place to decompress for a few minutes, but better spots exist in town.

Pioneer Coffee

121 North Pennsylvania Avenue,
Cle Elum, WA 98922

Review -

I always stop at Pioneer when I am traveling through and am rarely dissapointed. Even though they have a rotating cast of barista’s, they all seem to pull great shots and I always leave glad that there is good coffee in such a small town. They roast their beans right in the shop and have halfway decent food. The ambiance is a little odd. I always feel like I am intruding on a yuppy convention. It seems to bring in older white folks who seem disgruntled and snobbish. Screw them! I get my coffee to go. For your sanity, I would not reccommend staying long.
