If your idea of drinking a cup of energy means liquified kale instead of caffeine, you’ll want to visit Joe & The Juice. You can get both coffee and smoothies here, and it’s located at the bottom of a giant office building, so if you work upstairs and just need a break, it’s a great place to go if you can’t stray far from your desk.

Mr. West Cafe Bar
Mr. West Cafe is an attractive espresso bar and all day cafe with substantial food downtown.
We avoid superlatives, but Vivace probably makes the best espresso in the city. Hit the Capitol Hill location for its proximity to Sunrise Tacos.
