The Westlake café is the company’s third Seattle location to open, following a second Portland location that opened last month. Caffè Umbria’s second Chicago location is scheduled to open in October. Co-owners Emanuele Bizzarri, Pasquale Madeddu  and Jesse Sweeney chose existing markets to support the local economies where they currently operate, creating  more than 30 projected  full and part time jobs, with internal promotions leading the way.

Caffè Umbria’s brand and aesthetic is an elegant blend of rustic and modern elements; embracing current trends while honoring tried and true traditions. The new café embraces the architecture of the building, while mixing in the company’s signature branding and aesthetic. Local architect Richard Floisand, of Floisand Studio Architects delivered a contemporary aesthetic with vintage touches. The cozy café seats twenty-six, with additional space at a traditional stand up bar and outdoor seating. The iconic Griffen, heraldic symbol of Perugia, is engraved in the wooden back wall. The limestone and stainless steel bar sits in front of a wall of imported handmade tiles, beneath an arched wooden soffit. A La Marzocco Strada EE in celeste green, two Peak grinders and skillful baristas provide expertly crafted coffee drinks and superior service every day 7am - 6pm. Stop in and say hello!
