Espresso Vivace


Review of Alley 24 Location

Espresso Vivace Alley 24  has been in business since 1986.  This place brews a delicious cup of java.  Their espresso is always silky smooth and bursts with flavor.   

The Alley 24 location is one bustling place.  You can come in here any time of day and expect a crowd.  A lot of locals conduct business in this beautiful setting..  The interior is elegant, light, and airy.  The serving counter is sparkling and the coffee and pastry offerings are lovely.  During pleasant weather, you can sit outside and enjoy the lush landscaping of the REI flagship store across the street.  One nice touch is that one of their storefront windows slides back allowing patrons sitting next to the window to feel like they are out of doors.


Espresso Vivace


My only complaint about Espresso Vivace is that their pastries look great and taste great.  They are almost irresistible.  It is hard to order a beverage and not be seduced by the wonderful pastry display.  I try not to think about how much walking I have to do to burn off the sumptuous calories from the delicious pastry I couldn't pass up.



Either before or after your Espresso Vivace coffee break, make sure you check out the REI flagship store across the street.  The REI store is one of Seattle's major tourism destinations and is well worth a visit.
