When the chilly weather hits, it’s time to seek out some supplemental comfort. Fortunately, Seattle offers a diverse smattering of cozy cafes and bars providing all the repose you need. At Storyville Coffee (*multiple locations; storyville.com), snag a seat on the plush couches by the arch windows overlooking Pike Place Market. If you take your joe with a side of board games, Cafe Mox (5105 Leary Ave NW; moxboardinghouse.com) in Ballard is for you. Transport yourself to Paris by way of Cafe Presse (1117 12th Ave; cafepresseseattle.com) on Capitol Hill, an eatery equipped with a well-stocked magazine rack for perusing. A couple of blocks over, Little Oddfellows (1521 10th Ave; oddfellowscafe.com), inside the landmark Elliott Bay Book Company, serves everything from fresh juices to coffee to wine in an open space fringed by the city’s best book selection. And in West Seattle, sippers can gaze out at the waves from one of the counter seats at Ampersand Cafe (2530 Alki Ave SW; facebook.com/ampersandalki), where the Hawaiian coffee and eats complete the waterfront scenery.
