Coffee, Tea & Sweets

No surprise here: Seattle has been recognized as one of the top coffee cities in the world.

From small-batch roasters to global brands, this is a town that knows its caffeine. Starbucks is based out of Seattle, with cafes on nearly every street corner, including the famous Starbucks Reserve Roastery & Tasting Room with its coffee library of single-origin beans. Independent coffee chains also leave their mark on the Emerald City, with creative espresso drinks and brewing methods that locals love. But it’s not just coffee – Seattle also enjoys a robust tea scene with places like Steepologie, which boasts 250+ loose leaf tea blends and herbals plus a steep bar for hot or chilled tea. Meanwhile, bakeries and dessert hot spots sprinkle Seattle with freshly baked pastries, artisan cupcakes and doughnuts, tempting chocolates, and other sweet treats.
