Coffee shop for working and video calls

Coffee shops are great for plugging in and/or meeting face-to-face with people. But I'm looking for a coffee shop that's great for working and taking video calls from. The majority of places around town blast music and have mediocre internet. Has anyone found the perfect place for working quietly and/or taking calls from where the background noise isn't too loud?

I've thought about this too. Coffee shops are designed to be bustling, usually. The coffee shops I frequent in Pioneer Square are too loud for calls. Except for a couple which are probably too quiet - Elm & Storyville. If I were in your shoes I'd try a hybrid coffee shop, like the second floor in the Belltown Top Pot. I love working up there.

I also have a a couple of friends who swear by the Columbia Tower Club. Of course, for those prices you might as well spring for a co-working desk...

I like the Top Pot suggestion. Thanks Adam. I think there’s a good business plan in creating a coffee shop meant for working. Combine co-working concept with neighborhood coffee shop. Like what Capital One is doing with their cafes minus the bank. And with better coffee & wifi.

I love Poindexter in the lobby of the Graduate hotel in the U district. There’s a whole area behind the coffee counter that’s quiet and set up well for work. (Coming from a former CTC co-worker, prices and amenities there are way better that We Work).

I tried out Woods Coffee next to Chick-fil-a and it was great because they have a quiet area with tables right next to their coffee shop (part of the hotel next door). WiFi was horrible, however.
