Preservation coffee and tea is a gem. I was in town for business and ventured out in search of something better than my hotel's coffee, and Preservation was a pleasant find. Friendly and knowledgeable baristas, great atmosphere.

Found this place walking distance from my downtown hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff, and delicious comestibles. A little loud inside for my taste, so I chose a table outside.

Unfortunately living in Seattle has made me a coffee snob and I'll go to great lengths when I'm traveling to start my morning right. My routine is simple - just a plain black coffee - and this place hit the spot. Their morning pastry selection...More

I drop in this place about once a month, when I go to my bank. I park at the bank and have a couple blocks to walk. It's the only place I know that has what they call a Havana. I had a double today,...More
