Lighthouse Roasters

Lighthouse Coffee Rosters

It's iced coffee drinks and iced tea all around on this beautiful, warm, sunny afternoon at Lighthouse Roasters, a very popular Phinney Ridge neighborhood gathering place. Housed in an older wood frame building on a corner in a predominantly residential area, Lighthouse is as low key an establishment and as fine a quality as you are ever bound to find in Seattle. They roast on premise in very small batches.Their customers appreciate it .

I miss having a coffee house I can walk across the street to. You making me wax nostalgic.

This coffee shop is right down the street from my daughter's place, and believe it or not, I always walked past with my dog and hers, but never stopped. Will do so this trip! You caught the atmosphere well!

I remember places that looked a lot like this where you could walk in and get a super sandwich. A deli with a difference -- hand dipped ice cream too. I like this photo.

These places that roast on premises are usually several cuts above the mass-merchants of coffee. "Louis" suspects they know how to make a proper latte, too. "Barstucks" baristas never know how to float the espresso properly so the crema permeates the milk correctly to give you that explosion of flavor. "Louis" would like to try this place!

Warm? Do we really live in the same city?

My wife and I had our first 'date' here. When it's nice out on the weekends, we go for walks; this is usually our destination.

I love their coffee.
