Victola is a good coffee shop in Seattle. They have a nice relaxed atmosphere, great coffees and assorted hot drinks and they usually have free wifi.
Their space is large with plenty of tables (although it does fill up from time to time), and has just the right level of background buzz.
I've found that I can happily camp out at Victrola for a few hours in the evening, and easily pull out my laptop or read a book. They frequently bring in local jazz and blugrass bands, which all add to the environment.
I would love to see them expand their food offering beyond a few scattered baked goods. They do offer panini sandwiches, but there are only 4 types, and they are usually out of at least 2 of them.
I originally had rated Victrola with 5 stars, but after discovering that they turn off their wi-fi on weekends, I have to lower my rating. I also found this out the hard way. I was working on a few things when they turned off their wi-fi. I lost a whole bunch of work. I assumed that there was an error, but when I asked the staff to check on it , they told me they had intentionally turned it off.
