Turkish/Greek Coffee

Who prepares the best Turkish or Greek coffee in Seattle?

A few places list on on their menu, but not necessarily as a stand-out item.

I know Fainting Goat has it, but I have not tried it there yet.

Any suggestions?

  1. I am not an expert but I have often enjoyed Greek coffee at the Continental Cafe on University way in the 4500 block.

      Also further down the Ave on 43rd are two places facing each other, Cedars and Samir's. They both offer Turkish coffee.

    2. I have enjoyed good Turkish coffee at the most unlikely spot you can possibly imagine : the little Greek restaurant in the food court at Northgate. Also, you can check out Olive & Grape.

      1. This may sound odd, but the best Turkish coffee I've had in Seattle is at the Dilettante Mocha Cafes. There's one on Broadway, one in Westlake and a few more around. Strangely enough, there's one at the airport. In fact, I first tried their Turkish coffee there and now it's my silver lining whenever the security line is too long.
