Mr. West Cafe Bar features Campos Coffee, which is a leader in the specialty coffee movement. Their menu features drinks like the Coffee Egg Cream, Cardamom Tonic and Root Beer Cream coffees.

Victrola Coffee Roasters came to life from two needs: great coffee and a place for people to hang out in the 15th Avenue neighborhood. Opened in 2000 it embraced the liveliness, exuberance and fun of the Jazz era. In the three decades since it began, Victrola has opened four locations around Seattle and continues to look for more neighborhoods it can bring its passion for live vintage jazz and premium quality in-house roasted coffee.
This cool and haunted coffee shop is located in the original 1908 Pike Place Market restrooms in Lower Post Alley.
