Fodor's Review

Vivace is considered by many (including us) to be the home of Seattle's finest espresso. After 20 years at its original Capitol Hill location, Vivace relocated in 2008 to the ground floor of the upscale Brix condo complex and a long, curving bar and a colorful mural add some character to a space that might otherwise feel ho-hum. The place definitely has great energy—it's lively and bustling, with Hill residents tippity-tapping on laptops and students holding study groups. Pastries are a bit lackluster, but the espresso beverages more than make up for it. If the weekend line is too long, there's also a Vivace sidewalk stand just south of here at Broadway and Harrison Street (206/324–8861).
