Seattle Coffee Shops, Ada's Technical Books and Cafe, Capitol Hill Seattle


Seattle is a city with many great universities, colleges, and schools. Finding the perfect coffeehouse to study is certainly a personal choice, but if you need some help, I’d like to recommend a few. If you have a favorite, let me know it the comments or by sending me an email, so that I can add it to the list! (or take the poll!)


Coffeehouses That Are Great For Studying


Zoka Coffee – Tangletown/Greenlake

Zoka Coffee – Tangletown 2200 N 56th St, Seattle, WA 98103

Some people call it Greenlake. Some people call it Tangletown. Whichever you prefer, you’ll like Zoka’s open space to work, study, or simply enjoy their coffee.



Zoka Coffee – University Village

Zoka Coffee – University Village – 2901 NE Blakeley St Seattle, WA 98105

Zoka Coffee in the UV seems as though it was made for students to study. Enjoy an Americano while you find a nook in the back to study.


Café Solstice – University District

Café Solstice – University District – 4116 University Way Northeast, Seattle, WA 98105

Some people say it’s too loud. Some people say it can get crowded. BUT…I really, really like Café Solstice for working or studying. They serve Lighthouse Coffee and if what your studying gets really tough, they also serve a good selection of local brews.



Café Allegro – University District

Café Allegro – University District – 4214 University Way Northeast, Seattle, WA 98105

Café Allegro has been the go-to place for U-dub students and locals for decades. It’s still a comfortable place to crack open your books or camp for your mid-terms.



Caffé Appassionato – Salmon Bay/InterBay

Caffé Appassionato – 4001 21st Ave W Seattle, WA 98199

Caffe Appassionato is a hidden gem. It’s quiet, has great coffee, food, and the perfect ambiance to get comfortable for a couple of hours of studying. If you need an excuse for distractions you can see them roasting their tasty coffee through their wide-glass window!


Ada’s Technical Books – Capitol Hill

Seattle Coffee Shops, Ada's Technical Books and Cafe, Capitol Hill Seattle


Ada’s Technical Books – Capitol Hill – 425 15th Ave E, Seattle, WA 98112

I enjoy going to Ada’s. It provides a great space to get all cerebral with yourself. Great coffee, cookies, and really cool tables.


Joe Bar – Capitol Hill

Joes Bar, Capitol Hill Coffee Shops, Seattle Coffee

Joe Bar – Capitol Hill – 810 E Roy St, Seattle, WA 98102

It’s small, but if you’re lucky and claim a chair and table, you’ll be sittin’ pretty at Joe Bar.
