Caffe Ladro Espresso Bar & Bakery

Top quality coffees and hand made baked goods for greater Seattleites and our visitors

Now a Seattle café institution, Caffe Ladro opened its first location on Upper Queen Anne in 1994. From the intimacy and quirk of that single café, we’ve now grown to fourteen locations in the greater Seattle area that maintain the signature friendly atmosphere, quality baked goods, and delicious coffee. Ladro has always been a pioneer of sustainably and ethically produced coffee and in 2011 we launched a NEW division of the company: LADRO ROASTING. Now we're sourcing our own green coffee and roasting our single origins and blends to perfection in Queen Anne.

Coffee-Rubbed Ribeye Roast Recipe on Food52

The folks over at Food 52 share so many beautiful recipes. This one, for a coffee-rubbed ribeye roast, grabbed our attention. It sounds like the perfect thing to have roasting in the oven on a winter weekend. When organic Peruvian coffee beans meet Argentinian-raised prime ribeye, you get a deep-flavored roast that everyone will rave about.
