Reason #66: In Seattle you really don't have to try hard to get a good cup of coffee. Now, coming from a girl who thinks a French Vanilla from Timmy Ho's is pretty much the greatest way to get the day going, this statement might seem out of character, but my husband has corrupted me, and I have come to appreciate (and crave) proper coffee. In Vancouver I've found one, count 'em, one place for coffee: Cafe D'Artagnan.
Okay, that's not it's real name. That's just what Gabe and I have taken to calling it because Caffe Artigiano just doesn't stick in one's head as easily.
Anyway, in Seattle finding good coffee requires one merely step outside. With places live Vivace, Stumptown, Victrola, and more, Seattle is pretty much the espresso/ coffee capital of the States.
