Thoughtfully crafted Cuban-inspired coffee and espresso drinks, pastries, and dishes, atop Queen Anne hill.


El Diablo Coffee Co. has been a fixture in the Queen Anne neighborhood for 15+ years, providing a gathering place for locals and more.

We feature Cloud City Roasting to serve El Diablo Coffee's customers unique, artisan coffee roasts, including carefully composed blends and single-origin offerings. 

And our menu reflects this same dedication. We maintain a full-course menu, ripe with seasonality, including sandwiches, snacks, and espresso drinks highlighting Cuban flavors and fixtures, from our famous Mexican Chocolate Mocha to our traditional Cuban Sandwich.

The company pillars supporting El Diablo Coffee Co.

People first

What: Always follow the golden rule. Model and support others in their goals to be better and do better as we endeavor to do so ourselves by being humble, open, and honest. Create a safe place where people feel like they belong regardless of gender, race, origin or orientation.

Why: Our cafes exist to create community, and community is created around people.

How:  Have empathy and respect in everything we do. Support the neighborhood and community. Provide employees with support, fair pay, growth opportunities and ownership. Be honest with our mistakes and learn from them. “If you don’t love yourself, how the hell are you gonna love somebody else?” -RuPaul

Continual quality improvement

What: Deliver a quality product that is handmade when possible, responsibly sourced, and always improving.

Why: When we are proud of the products we serve, our customers notice.

How: Create ownership among staff to take pride in their work. Find new products, or new ways to prepare existing products, to improve our menu.

Environmental sensitivity

What: Be responsible with resources by managing them well, and reduce waste wherever possible.

Why: Being a responsible member of the community means paying attention to the well-being of our environment.

How: Reduce the number of consumables in the cafe through encouraging reusable cups, switching to compostable, and reducing the power and water use in the store.


What: Create a fun working environment for staff that encourages self-expression and engages customers.

Why: A positive work environment increases employee happiness, engages customers, reduces employee turnover, and increases productivity.

How: Hire positive people. Find methods for improving work life. Always be positive in front of customers while maintaining authenticity.

Business management and leadership

What: Create and manage a business model that both furthers our values and makes a profit. Lead by example and provide a culture of support.

Why: A successful business allows us to achieve the rest of our pillars.

How: Be profitable. Have resources available for employees. Maintain a stable workforce. “Run the numbers.” Keep on top of a changing market. Work collaboratively with staff (on all levels) to make decisions to create an open space where opinions, thoughts, and ideas are valued. Lead by example.
