We arrived at Seattle's King Street Station around 6:45 a.m., an hour early for our train, only to learn that food facilities here consist of two vending machines. So we went off on foot in search of a place for coffee and more. Two short blocks away, we found Zeitgeist. Its lighted interior sent out a welcoming beacon in the... More

This is a great little coffee shop in Pioneer Square. Their espresso is delicious, and their lunch selection is great.

I had Sour Cherry Pie and Soy Latte this afternoon. Great pie and good coffee! Music they played was cool and there was enough space for you to enjoy your food and indulge in whatever you want to do there.

Large, well lit shop with outdoor seating and quick made-to-order coffee drinks makes for a great stop if you're in the area near the stadium.

I love working at coffee shops. This place has amazing coffee and wonderful pastries. The internet is spotty and I would not suggest taking your work here.

Zeitgeist has a great atmosphere with a quirky, airy interior in what appears to be a former industrial building. Great choice of coffee and breakfasts, including croissants, cakes and sandwiches. Only a short walk to the historic Pioneer Square.

...the Cappucino is just OK, it had pretty unpleasant bitter note, I've had a better one at quite a few Starbucks. Wifi didn't work, food also didn't look were inviting....the only thing this place really excelled at was the amount of tattoos put on display by the baristas ;)
