Located in a complex modeled after a brick country cottage, this is the "off the beaten path" cafe most coffee lovers dream about. Offering a short list of sandwich selections and mouth watering crepes, this venue is as much about the ambiance and decor as it is about the actual coffee.

In a space that covers a single story and small loft covering less than 500 square feet, mixed matched wooden chairs and an obvious interest and investment in the art community make this venue cozy and inspiring.

The crepe offering are very noteworthy, from spinach and bleu cheese to their PB&J (with a glass of milk). Just don't expect to get anything quickly. Service here is often a bit confused when they hit a rush. Lastly, don't forget about the free wi-fi.

Joe Bar provides a warm, cozy environment to enjoy delicious coffee and chat. Their crepes are amazing and the outside seating is nice during the warm months. Great place to study too!

Besides the wonderfully warm and friendly staff, this place has great music, great hot chocolate, and free wifi! It's a unique and inviting atmosphere... my new favorite coffeehouse in Seattle.

Really, I love this place. It's a beautiful setting in the midst of ugly capitol hill. It's rare to sit outside and get hasseled by crazies- which is amazing for the neighborhood. Fun people watching, lovely on a sunny day- I always feel as if I've been transported back to France or Victoria, BC. That euro-street cafe feel. The owner rents the sidewalk from the city so you can bring your beer or wine outside without having a fence around you, too. The beer selection is awesome: mostly belgian or french beers like duvel and la fin du monde. Nice wine selection too. The crepes are not authentic-style galettes but still good and I hear the paninis are delish. Salads are good too. There's something for everyone at Joe Bar- good art, expensive wine and beer and cheap wine and beer ($2.50 red stripes!), good music, rad people, awesome AWESOME staff and dog-friendly.

Pros: outside drinking and smoking AOK, nice beers, beautiful setting.

Cons: nothing, this place is perfect.

The coffee here is great. Can't really speak to the food since I haven't tried it. I live in the neighborhood and go here often, but the barista has never asked my name and never remembers my drink...something I think is important in a city chock full of high-quality espresso. Service sets you apart. All the staff is friendly, though, so I can't really complain either. In general, this is a good coffee spot. I especially enjoy the rotating art displays.

This is the tiniest coffee shop I have ever seen, but it's awesome. They make it work - there is a small upstair where a few chairs can fit, as well as a few tables downstairs and outside, so there is always somewhere to sit. Coffee is pretty good, and the counter staff have always been so friendly every time I have been in . Perfect to take a walk to on a weekend morning, or after catching a movie at the Harvard Exit across the street.

PROS: Super nice staff, great coffee, cute neighborhood.
CONS: On very busy days, nowhere to sit.

I went to school right by Joe Bar and I got my java there every day... maybe not EVERY day but I certainly thought about it every day. The environment is so relaxed and friendly, you feel like you are a regular the very first time you come here. I love the Joe Bar and I will miss it SO MUCH when I move.

My first hang out when I moved to Seattle, so it feels like home. Very local, very friendly, a place where good friends meet. They have great coffee and delicious crepes, as well as a wireless network. They stand out in a town inundated with cafes as one of the best. It's right across from the Harvard Exit theater so stop in for a latte before the show. I am a student and find this a great place to study and people watch. I always see someone I know, so it feels like Cheers when I am there.

The people make all the difference here. Sure, the food is good and cheap, and the space is nice, but it would be nothing without the staff. It's my new hangout.
