Caffe Vita

Home > Seattle > Cafes | Coffee
Published November 30th 2011
Caffé Vita is a fine coffee chain, with shops in Seattle and Olympia. The location I will be reviewing may be found on East Pike Street, in Capitol Hill, Seattle. Situated near to the Seattle Central Community College, this Vita is popular with students. It is larger than most cafes, with two spacious areas to sit, one on the main level, and one upstairs. The tone of this shop is fairly dark, with dim lighting, and black chairs. I like to sit on the upper level, as it is quieter, and overlooks the street.

Although the interior is nice, I especially like the coffee. In Seattle, you may find a cafe on every corner, in the busier areas. However, I have noticed that there is a definite hierarchy regarding tastes of roasts. Vita is some of the better coffee I have tasted in the area, and you can purchase it in bulk packages, as whole beans or grounds.

There is an old piano in the corner of the loft area, although I imagine it is just for decoration, as I have not noticed anyone playing it, in the handful if times I have visited.

Like most trendy cafes, there is usually music playing in the background. I seem to remember they were listening to Tegan and Sara more than once, and the music choice overall sounded like mostly indie pop. I recommend the Capitol Hill location of Caffé Vita, for its atmosphere, and its strong coffee.
