Capitol Coffee Works is hands-down one of the most pleasant places in Seattle to spend a few hours and get some work done. The windows let a ton of light in, the artwork is nice to look at, and the baristas bring your coffee to you wherever you decide to sit. Speaking of which, you have plenty of seating options: personal tables, communal tables, a sofa, or even a swing suspended from the ceiling. The espresso isn’t the best in the city, but we’ll take it if it means we get to caffeinate in a space this nice.
