Over the last year there have been a flurry of new coffee shops that have popped up in downtown Bellevue. Here’s my list of favorite coffee shops.

Best Place to Work
Café Cesura
1015 108th Ave NE

The ambiance at Café Cesura with it’s high ceilings, modern furniture and purple walls give it an inspiring feeling. This coupled with a quiet environment makes it an ideal place to get work done.

Most accessible
Main Street Tully’s
10812 Main St

The problem with most of the coffee shops in downtown Bellevue is inaccessible parking. If you’re looking to grab coffee quickly or meet somebody for a meeting, the Tully’s on Main Street is your best bet. In recent trips it’s been such a popular choice that you can rarely find sitting!

Sweet Treats
Top Pot Doughnuts
10600 NE 9th PL

The name says it all. Top Pot Doughnuts has the tastiest doughnuts in town. Couple this with coffee and I’m not sure there’s a better duo.

Jujubeet Cafe
10246 Main St A

Jujubeet opened their cafe on Main Street last year, and it’s been a crowd favorite. They’ve extended their menu to be more then juice and now they offer lots of food options, as well as coffee. The clean refreshing interior makes it a nice place to meet friends.

New Coffee Shop
Honor Coffee
11011 NE 9th St B
My favorite new coffee shop is Honor Coffee, which is located across the street from The Bravern, at Alley 111. The shop is modern, cozy and has tasty coffee.

Open late
Starbucks at Barnes & Noble
626 106th Ave NE

This category is pretty self explanatory. Starbucks at Barnes and Noble is open until 10PM everyday.

  1. Thanks! Coffee shops are great way to get work down…away from the office. I will check out a few of these.

  3. My favorite is Belle Pastry! Indoor and outdoor seating with free parking in their garage if you can’t get street parking. Try the almond croissant. The Tullys parking lot is a mess ever since H Mart opened. And if you *have* to have Starbuck’s see Larry at the Civica Building location. He’s one amazingly talented and friendly guy!

  4. interesting, French bakery and café ladro are not mentioned…

  5. This list is not good. You would think they would be more creative. Zero effort in writing this. Who puts Starbucks on a list anymore? Come on Michael you can do better!

  6. Rebecca, Starbucks is on the list for being open late. I’m not sure what your beef is with that.

  7. Any idea when Third Culture Coffee will open? (Park88)

  8. Audie, I walked by yesterday and they haven’t even started build out yet.

  9. You are missing. Fika house… great coffee.

  10. I think it is a great idea to list the reasons for why you like the different coffee locations. Am a big fan of Honor Coffee – great coffee and atmosphere. Main street Tully’s is a great place to meet…if you can actually find a seat.

    Agree with Julie about Belle Pastry. Emphatically agree with Civica Starbucks – Larry is the absolute best. If you are ever having a bad day, his charm and honestly caring personality will lift up your spirits…plus he makes my personal favorite – decaf double tall mocha better than anyone else!

    Thanks for posting, Michael. It is great to see the list and reminds me that there are a lot of great places to try out.
