We became regulars at Caffe D'Arte for a week and a half while staying at the Moore Hotel in Seattle on vacation. Their coffees are fantastic (says my boyfriend), and I fell in love with their awesome decaffeinated chai tea (which is sold on Post Alley down the street). \r
The service is amazingly friendly - after a couple of days, they remembered our order and always engaged in small talk while making our beverages. On the last day of our trip, they actually gave us our drinks at no cost. \r
It also happened to be the least expensive of any coffee vendor we crossed paths with in the Seattle area. Almost nothing on their menu (drink-wise) exceeds $2.00, which surely can not be said for Starbucks/Tully's/Seattle's Best. \r
We actually considered having our photo taken with our barista before we left, but let's face it...that's just creepy. Anyways, Caffe D'Arte - where it's at for awesome coffee and teas in the Seattle area. It's just up the street from Pike Place Market on the corner of 2nd and Stewart (?).
Pros: Awesome service and quality
