Comfy, cozy, innovative drinks--and the innovation is earned, not stuffy. A fantastic place to catch up with friends, chat with the owner, play a game of speed scrabble, catch up on some reading, or listen to live music.

The firefly theme is just an added bonus.

It may sound strange to like a coffee house because they have paraphernalia from a tv show ?? but I do. I just had to buy the ??little Jane?? hat. If you don??t know what I mean you will still like the interesting coffee specials they offer and the super friendly service.

One of my favorite coffeehouses in the city. It's the antithesis of any other corporate coffee shop you might visit. Funky old furniture you can relax on for as long as you want, WAY better than average coffee drinks, and a wonderful focus on the long canceled "Firefly" television series. This is one of Seattle's treasures.

I consider myself an aficionado of the "coffeehouse" experience. It has, after all, quite the lengthy tradition, and I am a bit of a traditionalist.

What a good coffeehouse needs are: Good coffee, friendly staff, ample seating, special events to pull people in, and music that isn't so intrusive that it keeps you from enjoying the experience. Throw in a bookshelf, comfy chairs, a stack of games, and late hours, and said coffeehouse threatens to approach perfection.

Is the Wayward Coffeehouse perfection? Yes and no. If a wave of people comes in at once, you might find yourself lingering at the counter for your drink to be made, as the only time they are double staffed seems to be a shift change. And as the owner is a vegetarian, you will find no meat products on the menu. But those are merely quibbles. The ample list of cleverly named sandwiches (toasted cheese with hummus or peppers being my favorites) and innovative espresso drinks (white chocolate wasabi mocha, for instance) more than makes up for a little wait.

Open until 11, it fits with my schedule, and the menu fits with my budget. And the coffee, fairly traded and shade grown organic coffee from Tony's makes a mean cuppa joe.

Highly recommended for those looking to kill an hour or two over hot drinks.

I have spent years looking for a place where I could curl up and relax with a book and an Italian soda and I have finally found it. A classy little coffeehouse with a splash of sci-fi geekiness found in the various Joss Whedon related posters and sci-fi themed menu items. It has one of the best Italian Soda's in all of Seattle and the atmosphere just makes you feel at home. I would recommend it to anyone. The home of Seattle Browncoats it is truly a wonderful place.

With casual seating friendly staff, and tasty coffee Wayward is a true neighborhood coffee house. I like the fact that the Baristas know how to pull a good shot, and know the meaning of machiatto.
Its my favorite coffee shop

For me, real coffeehouse culture requires four things - Good coffee, late hours, friendly staff, and comfortable third-place atmosphere.

I couldn't have created a better coffeehouse than the Wayward if I had tried. With more electrical boxes than my last apartment, it's easy to find somewhere to plug in the laptop, check the email off their free wi-fi, and enjoy the best damn dry cappacino I've ever had. No, really, it's like drinking a velvety cloud. A cappacino that good should be a sin.

And it's late hours make it a natural home-base for your exploration of a fascinating and re-invigorated neighborhood.

Check it out and I bet you won't go anywhere else.
