Fodor's Expert Review Batdorf & Bronson Coffee Bar
Here is a local roaster (also with branches in metro Atlanta, Georgia) that can stand up to the best of Seattle's coffeehouses. Several spacious and sleek shops, including this one across from the Farmers Market, pair the best beans with just-baked pastries and tasty sandwiches. The tasting room up the street at 200 Market is in the roastery. You can sample about a half-dozen of Batdorf's favorite blends Wednesday through Sunday from 9 to 4.
