Couth Buzzard Books and Espresso – Quirky bookstore

Couth Buzzard Books is one of those hard to pigeonhole old Seattle businesses that are still here, despite the changes all around. A new and used bookstore at heart, Couth Buzzard also features a cafe with food and drink, and a community space which hosts a widely varied selection of music and events.

You can get lost in the shelves, searching for the perfect book, then grab a drink and stay to dig into your new find. You could easily meet someone to discuss literature or philosophy with, as well.

Their Espresso Buono Cafe features coffee and cold drinks, along with homemade pizza and sandwiches. They’ve also joined the newest trends, with beer and ice cream. What better way to enjoy your brand new book!

Their calendar is packed with music, literature readings, and community events. On any given day you might find a Spanish meet-up, writers group, or even a whole Jazz festival. It all makes for a great place to visit anytime!
