Coffee, Tea and More: Warm Up at one of these Top Issaquah Beverage Spots

The Pacific Northwest is home to some of the best coffee shops in the world! After trying nearly all the coffee shops in Issaquah (we know it’s a hard job but somebody has to do it), we’ve narrowed down our list of favorites! Keep reading to discover our must-try coffee shops that blend together good ambiance, great experience, and delicious coffee! 


Starting with Issaquah Coffee Company located in Gilman Village. This joint has been brewing up coffee since 2010. Along with serving premium coffee, they also sell baked goods and pastries made by small local businesses! Voted the best coffeehouse in Issaquah in both 2020 and 2021, this place checks our boxes for ambiance, experience, and coffee! 


Caffe Ladro is more than just a coffee shop, it’s a coffee institution! What began as just one coffee shop has grown into 16 locations with loyal customers coming back time and time again for ethically produced coffee, friendly atmosphere, and fresh baked goods. Can’t get enough of their signature Seattle roast? You’re in luck! They now bag and sell their beans for you to enjoy in the comfort of your home! 


Running late but need your caffeine fix? Swing by Bigfoot Java, the ultimate drive-thru coffee shop in Western Washington! They’re known for having some of the most creative limited-time drinks like the Pumpkin Smash and the Peppermint Bark latte which are currently both in season! 


We don’t know about you but we like our coffee with a doughnut on the side! When we’re in the mood for a sweet treat, you’ll find us at Top Pot Doughnuts! In 2002, they opened their first location in Capitol Hill but as their popularity grew, they began popping throughout the Puget Sound with one location just 8-minutes from Alexan Heartwood! Here, you’ll find that their 6 various coffee blends are just as high quality as their doughnuts! We recommend trying their seasonal doughnuts including the Peppermint Snowdrift and Apple Cider Cake! 


With so many options to choose from, the Seattle coffee shop scene can be overwhelming but we hope this blog is able to help you navigate it a little bit easier! Which one are you most eager to try? Don’t forget to stay up to date with all of Alexan Heartwood’s most recent happenings by following us on Facebook and Instagram!
