Nice comfy location of a local coffee house chain. More relaxed than the corporate green mermaid place. More like the faux intellectual, artsy fartsy wannabee, Yuppies' hang out. Best thing about this place is the outdoor seating in summer. They have a couple of tables, a couple of iron benches, and several wood lawn chairs to relax in with your Joe. The peanut chocolate biscotti is huge and good, too!
Prices are typical and the going rate for espresso.

I was recommended to go to a Caffe Ladro by some of the Seattle locals so after having a fantastic trip in Seattle that was mostly coffee based, I definitely had to try this place out.
This place is absolutely tiny, I think cash only and at night is very dimly lit so you can barely see where you're stepping (and that's not quite an easy task at such a small coffee shop where everyone is within an elbow's reach). They have a huge menu on the mirror which can sometimes be hard to read as your own reflection would distract you from some of the words or make them difficult to make out. I got a soy latte and I thought that although the latte had good flavor, the coffee was a little bland and not as nutty or chocolatey as I would have expected of this place.
However, coming to Seattle and trying out just about every coffee shop in the area, I have come to find that the bigger the independent coffee shop chain, the more their coffee suffers :\
