7 Must-visit Coffee Shops in Bothell

There’s nothing like cupping a hot mug of coffee and chatting with friends in a cozy cafe.

Whether you love a classic coffee, an inventive latte, a sweet-as-can-be hot chocolate, or a comforting tea, discover eight Bothell coffee shops to visit next time you’re in town.

T55 Patisserie

The newest addition to Bothell’s small business line-up is T55 Patisserie, a bakery that’s bringing Southeast Asian-French fusion to the forefront. Though the patisserie is gaining notoriety for their delectable pastries, don’t sleep on their drink menu, which includes different flavors of espresso (including hazelnut and blackberry) and lattes with lovely syrup options like lavender and caramel.

Social Grounds Coffee

A tried-and-true watering hole for locals and visitors alike, Social Grounds Coffee & Tea Co. promises to serve coffee that people love. The coffee shop’s menu features classics, like chai lattes and macchiatos, but also seasonal favorites, like eggnog lattes, and a “slow pour” which is made using a Beehive vessel for a fresh and bold cup of Joe.

Caffe Ladro

Across the street from McMenamins Anderson School is Caffe Ladro, a Seattle mainstay with 16 uniquely designed locations, including Bothell’s. The coffee shop offers indoor and outdoor dining, and an in-house bakery that sells fresh-baked pastries every day. 

Alexa’s Cafe

If you’re looking for a coffee shop that serves up mouthwatering brunch, Alexa’s Cafe is your kind of place. The restaurant has an extensive breakfast and lunch menu, with Scrambles, Benedicts, and sandwiches galore. Order espresso, coffee, or tea at your next brunch here, and for the kids, their hot chocolate with whipped cream is a crowd-pleaser!

Woods Coffee

Family-owned and operated, Woods Coffee sources its coffee globally while providing sustainability for the coffee farmers they work with. Their drinks menu is impressive, with classics like drip coffee and Americanos, and innovative beverages, including Salted Caramel Cold Brew and their Avalanche blended drink.

Hillcrest Bakery

If you’re looking for a bakery that serves up comforting pastries, look no further than Hillcrest Bakery! A Bothell institution since 1965, the coffee shop bakes Dutch and European pastries, including Banket Staaf, Speculaas cookies, apple strudel, and eclairs.

Countryside Donut House

A donut and a coffee — there’s no greater pair! Countryside Donut House sells coffee and donuts, without the frills. All of their melt-in-your-mouth donuts are freshly made every day, including their apple fritters, maple bars, and classic glazed.
