South Lake Union

Elm Coffee 9th & Thomas

Our second café opened in South Lake Union in August 2018.  Located in the lobby of the stunning 9th & Thomas building, both the building and the cafe space itself were designed by renowned local architects Olsen Kundig and built by Sellen Construction.  

The cafe is open to the lobby, features a marble bar, gorgeous green tile, and plenty of seating both in the café and in the comfortable lobby.  Drink a fruity Kenyan coffee out of Japanese porcelain while sitting in the generous leather chairs and listening to the playlist curated by local radio station KEXP.  

Pastries are provided by Comadre Panaderia (conchas, sweet and savory empanadas, and amazing pink cake) and The London Plane (scones, delicious chocolate chip cookies, shortbread).  Beautiful teas from Song Tea in San Francisco.
