Exposed brick and natural wood finishes complement the warm dcor of this old urban coffee shop. Nestled in midst of Pioneer Square office towers and street shops, this gem is one of the few coffee shops in the downtown corridor open late (past 5pm) or on weekends. The coffee itself is true art from baristas that focus, not on getting you in and out, but, on the taste and presentation of your coffee. It should be noted that the chocolate for their mochas is provided by Dilettante Chocolates, a local gourmet chocolate company.

In addition to their coffee, they also offer an array of sandwich choices, salads, fruit, and a case of pastries. Be warned that they often run out of sandwiches after the lunch hour, so arrive early. Should you be alone or with inquisitive company, Zeitgeist also promotes local artists with monthly updated lit displays.

Cons: Food Isn't Always Available, Slow Service

An excellent coffeeshop in one of the most eclectic areas of downtown. A MUST to visit! this is hands down the best coffeeshop I have ever been to; better than any in all of Seattle, Portland, Las Vegas, or my current home of Phoenix. We will be stopping in when we visit Seattle later in the summer.

Pros: Ambience, coffee and food all top notch.

Cons: Since it is downtown, it may be inconvenient for those in suburbia.

If you're in the Pioneer Square area and looking for a coffeehouse where you can relax and enjoy good grub without attitude, go here. We came here because we like to support the independents. It's cool without being annoyingly hip. Open, airy interior. Art by local artists on display adds inspiration. They have food items and baked goods. My sandwich was satisfying. Espresso was top-notch.

Zeitgeist is bar none the most beautiful, and inexpensive coffeehouse in downtown Seattle. There is great ambience, attractive baristas, interesting art shows, and delicious coffee. I would recommend Zeitgeist to any tourist coming through Pionner Square, or any local living in downtown Seattle ore the I.D.

Brian- This is a former groopie. You gave me some early lessons about coffee and roast profiles. My son and I own Metropolis Coffee Co in Chicago. I now know how much effort goes into maintaining quality after 2 and 1/2 years of roasting with running a a coffeehouse . Your place is great! You deserve all the success that you get.

The owner and staff are knowledgable and friendly; the feeling is wonderful, very much like my favorite places in Italy, France and yes, there's a Zeitgeist-looking place in Lima,Peru too. Hope to get back to Seattle soon and say hello, and enjoy a good cup.

This is a must-not-miss location for monthly art walk with it's friendly, knowledgable baristas and it's always interesting gallery shows. There is music, there is art, there is the 'cool kids' and more.

very cool place - very comfortable spot, outstanding espresso drinks (Illy) and excellent music - the morning I was there, the barista was playing Interpol. highly recommend getting there at 7am and bring something good to read, buy a delicious pastry and at least two cappucinos. settle in to savor the time you have to hide from the world in this cozy cafe.
