Cafe Allegro

Seattle's Original Espresso Bar. Est 1975

Caffeinating the University District since 1975, Cafe Allegro holds the distinction of being Seattle's oldest espresso bar. Tucked away in the alley on 42nd, Allegro's timeless brick walls, ample space, and strong coffee attracts a diverse crowd.

We're sleeping in an extra hour tomorrow for the Monday holiday. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

A million high fives to all our friends. Congrats on surviving another crazy week.

Scarecrow Video

Friends, if you have a moment or two and love Scarecrow video they could use our vocal love and support! Let's let the city council know how much this amazing, generous, and beloved institution means to our community.

On Valentine’s Day, next Tuesday the 14th, community members and supporters of Scarecrow Video can publicly declare their love for the nonprofit video and physical media archive at Seattle’s City Hall. The Committee for Civil Rights, Utilities, Economic Development & Arts has invited Scarecrow Video to present at the official Council Committee meeting!

Local filmmakers Lynn Shelton and Megan Griffiths, film critic Robert Horton, and more are slated to speak as part of the 30 minute presentation. But what we really want is for YOU, our incredible supporters and fans, to come out and share your love or your favorite Scarecrow memory during the public comment period!

If you're able to join us, you must sign up between 9:00 - 9:30 am at Council Chambers, Seattle City Hall, 600 Fourth Avenue, Floor 2. You don't have to stay for the whole presentation (unless you really, really want to), but the comment signup closes and the meeting will start at 9:30 sharp! If you aren't able to make it, you can still let the committee know how much you love us by emailing Councilmember Lisa Herbold at

Hope to see you all there!

Neighbor Day is this weekend and a great way to show your love and kindness to your neighbors. For more information about Neighbor Day check out:
