    Great coffee, and always pleasant baristas. Stopping at diva on my way to work always makes my day a little brighter.

    I got an espresso here and it was ABOMINABLE! I took a couple of sips and then just threw it in the trash. I guess the people who go here don’t really taste the coffee and just pay for the stuff on top. Their prices are high too. I don’t recommend this place. If you are a coffee connoisseur in the ‘hood, you should go to Seven Roasters – molto meglio!!

    pietro47, I don’t think anyone orders espresso (more than once) at Diva.

    Viva Makeda!

    pietro47, I don’t know what planet you come from, but Diva has never, ever served me a coffee drink that was less than stellar. It’s a great place to get a consistently fine espresso. And they’re friendly.
    Try the Ice Princess and the Chumley, too, for frozen goodness!

    Consistently fantastic lattes, friendly and efficient.

    Great coffee, one of my favorites! I took my 5 and 7 year old cousins for hot chocolate a few times and the barista didn’t seem to like the idea of having children there. Even though each time we sat quietly and talked or read at their bar by the window. It seems to be more of an adult coffee house.

  8. Stinky Larue says:

    Diva consistently pours a good shot and the baristas are great. I recently had some freinds from Italy here who picked Diva, Vivace and the espresso bar at PCC as the best espresso in Seattle.

  9. Mari Halley says:

    The best in Greenwood! The coffee is fabulous. The baristas are friendly and welcoming. They are quick, courteous, and Divas supports our local schools.
