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.
Sure, Seattle has long been known for its coffee prowess, but teatime is becoming the talk of the town. Seek out hot brews at these top tea spots for any type of personality.
The same obsession with quality and experimentation that guides Seattle’s dinner menus and cocktail lists is evident in its cakes, pies, ice cream, and grown-up takes on s’mores. Here’s our sweet guide to the most decadent desserts around town.
