Seattle’s Best Coffee – literally Seattle’s best – recently opened its 47th branch in Iloilo City. The newly opened store is located on the lower ground floor of SM City Northwing, Mandurriao, Iloilo City. Contrary to popular belief, Seattle’s Best is more than just a coffee shop – it serves an array of freshly cooked meals from breakfast, light meals, to pastries and desserts.
How it became ‘Seattle’s Best’? A seaport city on the West Coast, Seattle is the largest city in both the state of Washington and the Pacific Northwest Region of North America. It is also the 11th largest metropolitan economy in the United States. Seattle hasn’t always been the center of coffee. It was only in the ’70s when the transition took place. ‘Seattle’s Best Coffee’ came to fruition when a local restaurant held a taste-off among major roasters to award ‘the best cup of coffee in Seattle’ – and the founder of today’s Seattle’s Best, with coffee made from roasted Arabica, won.
What to expect at Seattle’s Best Coffee? As mentioned, it is surprisingly more than just a coffee shop. It serves freshly cooked meals from breakfast, light meals, to pastries, and desserts. Experience freshly cooked pancakes, omelets, french toast paired with sausage, bacon, and much more for a more-than-satisfying breakfast. Light meals include pasta specials – arrabiata, pesto, and amatriciana; salads – vegetable, tuna, and chef’s; and clubhouse sandwich. Seattle’s Best also serves panini – smoked salmon and cream cheese, ham and cheese, quattro formaggi, and pesto-tomato and mozarella – as well as toasties.
The experience at Seattle’s Best Coffee is one that is worth reminiscing – and reliving. Lined with cushioned sofa seats, cozy ambiance, good food, generous serving, and excellently blended line of beverages is truly a testimony why Seattle’s Best Coffee is truly Seattle’s best – not only in Seattle but in every locality, it serves its food and coffee in.
