Americano and pumpkin bagel. Perfection! Why did it take so long to discover this place? Love the decor with hardwood floors, comfy chairs and local artwork.

A double espresso macchiato and we're ready for a long day ahead! Excellent service and impressive coffee in a lovely naturally lit cafe!

We always enjoy a visit to Ristretto for coffee, especially on a cool day. The prices are less than St****** and the vibe is "local". We have not yet enjoyed wine and beer in the evenings.

Parking is normally very easy on the street for Ristretto. Service is fast and friendly, and the pastries are great. There is plenty of space to sit and enjoy you coffee while getting your email. By the way the WiFi works great. Ristretto is now my place for coffee in Mount Vernon. I am sure that it will also become... More

Love this little place. The coffee is great and comes in nice, big cups! My favorite is the Americano but I'm not into milk. My husband enjoys their lattes with and without flavors. The sandwiches, salads and pastries are always good and fresh. Some comfy seating and you'll feel at home reading, writing or using your computer. Nice staff, too.... More

Stopped in to try out the new owners menu. We had great coffee and sensible panini sandwich and chips. Nice warm place with great atmosphere.

Ristretto's is a fun and relaxing environment - brick walls, Wi-Fi, and all around good choice to stop for a cup of coffee with a friend. All drip coffee is pour over and they have a stamp program.

We were looking for a place for a quick coffee and a sweet on our way to Seattle. Came off of I-5 at Mt. Vernon and as luck would have it, the only place open was Ristretto. We each had a terrific cup of coffee and the honey Brie plate with crackers. It was a perfect snack break. Nice atmosphere,... More
