Got some Clam chowder, toasts and sallad. All good. And the coffee was also really great. The service swift and pleasant. A nice place to relax a little while from the crowd of the city.

The food was decent --but the service was slow. This is one of those places where you place your order and they give you a buzzer that lights up when your food is ready --They were not very busy when we got there but it seemed like the food took forever --and it was warm but not hot when we...

We had breakfast here recently and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere the service from the staff and the food. The croissants were delicious and the coffee freshly made and equally enjoyable.

We stumbled across Specialties when we were looking for a quick bite to eat at lunch time after we arrived in Seattle. We had a sandwich and soup, both were tasty and enjoyable. The venue also had a pleasant atmosphere. It did however seem a little pricey.

They have a large salad & sandwich menu, you can modify them to your preference, and it had a surprisingly large seating area. the food we ordered was fresh and tasted great. They have an awesome selection of treats as well, including some wonderful chocolate chip... More

I come to Seattle every couple of weeks on business and the office I work out of is next door to here. Great selection and great tasting food. Only complaint is that I sometimes find the portion sizes a bit large. Too much for one meal, not enough for two - unless you get a large salad. Since I'm often... More

I ordered a hot ham n cheddar sandwich. It was really good. A little pricy for a single sandwich. Can't eat here every day.

Dropped in for a morning caffeine re-load. Yum to the coffee. Great, tasty, and hot like I like it! Had a blueberry cream cheese pastry. Yeah I know I shouldn't but it looked so good, and it was. Oh Boy.

We thought about ordering lunch but both times we stopped in while passing by we simply ended up buying a dozen cookies. They have a good variety baked on site and everyone we tried was pretty good. Only issue was service time. Both times there were 6-8 people waiting and it took a bit too long to be served.

Thank Levon M
