This is without a doubt the best coffee. I no longer live in Seattle but I go back to Cafe Allegro every time I'm in town. The service is welcoming and the pastries are great and the coffee is so good that I someone who...More

Location in an alley remains the most attractive point. We both had Americanos, and both agreed -- that though we like dark roasts -- this was too dark and burnt-tasting. Service was excellent. Ambiance is comfortably grungy.

Great coffee, good atmosphere. I loved the pesto bun and the fact that the coffee comes in glass mugs.

Some of the best coffee in Seattle. I love this place and would definitely recommend it. I regularly buy beans so I can enjoy the coffee at home.

Excellent traditional cappuccino served by friendly knowledgeable baristas. Near U.Wash, but a little tricky to find in an interior back alley. Ancient brick building with lots of history (if you like that kind of thing).

Hidden Coffee shop that we went to because it was the oldest coffee place in Seattle. Probably should of stayed hidden. Coffee was just ok, staff was not very friendly, almost rude. Plenty of seats, which is a plus.
