We tried it the last day on our way out. It was about 7am and dark out. The place was slightly hard to see as google maps for some reason tells you in H&M (??) but when we finally found it we parked about a block down. The coffee was really good. Strong but tasted fresh and made quickly! I deducted a star just because it would have been much more convenient to take debit/credit--none of us realized it was cash only and luckily we scrounged up enough to get three cups! <p>Someone recommended monorail expressi as a good coffee place during our stay in Seattle.

8549 review-told-people-best-coffee-seattle told-people-best-coffee-seattle http://www.monorailespresso.feedback/review-told-people-best-coffee-seattle 8 8 8 0 0 0 I'd been told by several people that this is the best coffee in Seattle. And there are a lot of coffee shops here! So I tried a large mocha with almond milk, and I added some extra sugar to it, because I am a sugar fiend. It's a small window counter, no seating, stand outside, and be forewarned it is CASH ONLY, which I hate, so to tell the honest truth I probably won't return because of that. Having cash for my coffee is inconvenient, even though the coffee was great. The mocha itself was wonderful, you can tell it's real chocolate in there, rich and creamy. And a lovely foam on top that I couldn't wait to lap up. BUT... all things considered. I just do not foresee myself having to carry cash for this. More and more payments are going digital (square, venmo, paypal, etc.). <p>I&rsquo;d been told by several people that this is the best coffee in Seattle. And there are a lot of coffee shops here!

8542 review-don-know-kind-magic-using don-know-kind-magic-using http://www.monorailespresso.feedback/review-don-know-kind-magic-using 10 10 10 0 0 0 I don't know what kind of magic they're using behind the counter, but Monorail has the best espresso I've ever had. I've had great shots at Vita, Vivace, Stumptown, etc etc, but it's always a crapshoot. Usually shots are okay to decent, but rarely any better. Monorail, on the other hand, is always very good to great. Always the right kind of consistency (most places seem to frequently make their shots oddly watery), great mouthful, never gritty, and the flavor is always full. Never have I had the flat, bitter shots other places serve. I don't know if it's the attention they pay to their machines, the skill of their baristas, the quality of their beans, some combination of the above and other factors, but whatever the magic is: please keep it up. <p>I don&rsquo;t know what kind of magic they&rsquo;re using behind the counter, but Monorail has the best espresso I&rsquo;ve ever had.

Strong, bold, and delicious :) It definitely hit my coffee craving. They have few seats outside on Pike st if you want to chill and read the paper. Baristas: I realized the second time I visited it wasn't the same because I had a different barista. If you're looking for bold flavored latte then look for the blonde lady or the one with tattoos. The other lady is recommended if you like smooth and creamy. Tip: The place is small and it's cash only! I think they sell the beans for $12/lb. Check out their sign. They list the price it'll cost for directions to certain areas. Starbucks is listed as "priceless".

Monorail expresso is true to its name , they are next to the entrance to the rail system at westlake and , their  coffee is meant for people on the go . It's a very small space and you order on the sidewalk at their walk up window. They did have one picnic table and a few small tables on sidewalk but it was raining and so obviously no one was sitting around.  They nice lady at the window suggested I order their well known burnt Carmel latte . It was delicious ! A Well made cup of happiness on a gloom grey afternoon . I thought it tasted very close to a vanilla flavor latte .  This place is Cash ONLY ! <p>It&rsquo;s true what they say &hellip;you can&rsquo;t judge a book by its cover and I guess you can&rsquo;t find a bad cup of coffee in Seattle !

They did have one picnic table and a few small tables on sidewalk but it was raining and so obviously no one was sitting around.  They nice lady at the window suggested I order their well known burnt Carmel latte . It was delicious ! A Well made cup of happiness on a gloom grey afternoon . I thought it tasted very close to a vanilla flavor latte .  This place is Cash ONLY !</p> 2016-05-09T19:11+0000 [{"url":"https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/dotfeedback-images/e7b982d2-70dd-472d-8e51-c1ce52c5bd2b","uri":"/review-true-say-judge-book-cover/attachments/30628","mediaType":"image/jpeg","id":"30628"},{"url":"https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/dotfeedback-images/957d00ca-0232-4f21-8c68-227a663feb0b","uri":"/review-true-say-judge-book-cover/attachments/30629","mediaType":"image/jpeg","id":"30629"},{"url":"https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/dotfeedback-images/a0a007be-1e1e-48fd-bfef-a170d4f94ec2","uri":"/review-true-say-judge-book-cover/attachments/30630","mediaType":"image/jpeg","id":"30630"}]

It’s true what they say …you can’t judge a book by its cover and I guess you can’t find a bad cup of coffee in Seattle ! Monorail expresso is true to its name , they are next to the entrance to the rail system at westlake and , their  coffee is meant for people on the go . It’s a very small space and you order on the sidewalk at their walk up window.

Didn't want to come all the way to Seattle just to get a drink at Starbucks (unless it's the first one, I get it!). You order, your drink is made, and then you pay. Because of that, the line moves slow. But with the time, the owner really tries to connect with every customer that comes by! <p>EXTREMELY CUTE.
