Best coffee house in the Central District… good people, great owner, lovely neighborhood vibe. The waffles and locally made empanadas are STELLAR. And they use really good semi-sweet chocolate & herkimer coffee. You really cannot go wrong here.

Cozy little cafe with good coffee and waffles. They even have vegan options. This is very much a local shop so don't expect fast generic service. It's a great place to come and hang out. The parklet outside is nice on a sunny day as well. Highly recommended!

Cortona is my favorite small business in the neighborhood. They have delicious food, excellent espresso, friendly service, and patio seating. Best of all, they're dog friendly and have a jar of free puppy treats inside and a water dish outside.

Great locally owned cafe that has been here for years. They serve excellent herkimer coffee and have the friendliest service around. The wifi is very dependable as well if you're looking for somewhere to get some work done. They also serve Belgian waffles and pastries from Golden Wheat Bakery (instead of the usual Macrina).

the staff is awesome, the coffee is good (herkimer never lets me down), and they've got waffles - fruit, tiramisu, and/or vegan. i also appreciate the milk alternatives; i come by often and get work done with the free wifi. swing through and support black-owned businesses!

Keijia does NOT look like a gargoyle but DOES have unicorns in and around the cafe. My pooch and I really are lucky for the open and friendly staff, space and opportunity to be around. Thanks Cortona, from day one til now!!

herkimer is a wonderful coffee blend that just drove past me on way for delivery Republican and Bellevue Seattle WA. :) Served everyday at Cortona Cafe, accompanied by Golden Wheat Bakery pastery options and home made Waffles.

Came in and was instantly greeted with a warm smile from the Barista. She showed me her selection of fresh teas she had available. When I asked her for recommendations she offered me the chamomile which was the one I was thinking about. It was excellent! Would definitely stop by again if I am in the area.

My friends just moved to this neighborhood so I've only gotten to visit once so far. Great pastries, happy vibes, good service and coffee that hits the spot. Look forward to coming back. (I live in central Oregon so I am not a local, though have been to many neighborhood Seattle coffee shops and cafes)

The one person on staff was such a sweetheart! Super patient with my questions and great at offering suggestions. Perfect venue for this lovely spring day and the rice tea I got was fantastic! Just what I wanted, I suggest you get a little steamed almond milk in it! Delish!

Nice little coffee shop serving coffee, desserts, waffles and empanadas. Good service. They also have an outdoor patio which would be great seating on a warm sunny day.

I went here several months back and this was such a homey little cafe! They serve pretty good coffee and their waffles are amazing! Nutella waffles are so good, I would come here again.

Cozy spot with ample indoor and outdoor seating. Upstairs is a loft area that's perfect for some seclusion to read or write. Espresso drinks and snacks are quality. Service is great.

Alex C

Friendly staff combined with great coffee, what else could you ask for in a neighborhood coffee shop. Cortona has a wide assortment of food choices. If you're looking to snack on a enpanada, a bagel, or a muffin you've come to the right place. Though I highly recommend you try a waffle with fruit or Nutella, either way it's delicious!

J P

I like this little place. It's a tiny hole in the wall with good coffee and fresh waffles. There's not much seating inside but it's got a little mini park right on the street that has plenty of seating for when it's nice out.

Great coffee and waffles in a nice down to earth atmosphere. Only real complaint was that coffee was served in a plastic cup. Not a lot of character to that presentation.

My daughter and I had breakfast here Friday morning and will definitely be coming back. The owner was sweet and made us feel so welcome while providing great food and service. The waffle was easily the best Belgian waffle I've ever had, and the drinks are amazing. Great selection of non-dairy milk alternatives too, which we appreciated. So happy we found this spot.
