Best Coffee in East King County
Best coffee shops in East King County? The truth is there aren’t very many local, independent coffee gigs outside of a few drive ups, some restaurants and grocery stores that “serve coffee” east of Lake Washington.
Let’s not forget of course that there are lots of the big boys all over Eastside, and let’s be clear, they get a TON of business.
Some of my local favorites include, Victors’ Coffee in Redmond – a Celtic coffee house with local coffee roasting onsite, homemade “Walter’s Waffles,” Bread Pudding and a few other unique pastries. Victor’s has kept the same menu from original owner’s Victor and Jane. They also serve soup, bread, a few sandwiches, and have lots of great décor and funky seating (personal favorite is the old church pew).
Issaquah Coffee opened just over a year ago on back side of Gilman Village, proudly serving Oregon’s own Stumptown Espresso. Always busy and loaded with moms and their kids. It may be the great selection of neighborhood-local pastries and gelato throughout the summer!
Zoka Coffee opened up an Eastside location in downtown Kirkland in the past 2 years. Eclectic décor, nice pastry offerings, and smooth, strong espresso.
How can we forget Caffe Ladro up in the Issaquah Highlands and in downtown Bellevue? Great service, smooth espresso, local pastries.
