Specialty's does pastries, salads, and sandwiches. while the food is certainly good, and the staff is uniformly pleasant and helpful, they get BIG credit for automatically asking if I wanted my take out salad tossed with the dressing or with the dressing on the side....More

There is lots of room to enjoy breakfast or a coffee and have a conversation with someone as it's not too loud. There are lots of choices for breakfast sandwiches and soups/sandwiches for lunch including numerous vegetarian options.

Friendly interested staff, a variety of coffee and baked goodies. My first taste of Seattle coffee and I was impressed - not at all burnt and beautiful flavour. Has expanded over the years as clearly popular. Would definitely go again.
