Some of the best coffee in Seattle. I love this place and would definitely recommend it. I regularly buy beans so I can enjoy the coffee at home.

Another great visit in town and this is one of my must-go places. The coffee is great, and that's so needless to say, and I always enjoy the ambient, the people, history and environment. I am always so happy to be here and always wish...More

Excellent traditional cappuccino served by friendly knowledgeable baristas. Near U.Wash, but a little tricky to find in an interior back alley. Ancient brick building with lots of history (if you like that kind of thing).

It is a little hard to find, the front of it is in an alley, always crowded and always good coffee. I have heard it is the first coffee shop to serve up "mixed coffee" drinks.

For being ranked the oldest espresso joint in Seattle, I expected a little better coffee. I did read the original Starbucks proprietor designed the Starbucks coffee product line from Cafe Allegro, so that explains the poor taste of both places.

Café Allegro's location in an alley just off the UW campus makes it convenient for University affiliated people. There are lots of seats and tables, many of which seem to be occupied by long-term users. We had no trouble finding seats, however. I had high...More
