Conan O’Brien, host of the talk show Conan on TBS, was spotted at Macrina Bakery’s Belltown cafe yesterday morning. He was in casual mode: motorcycle jacket, famously swoopy hair a little less coiffed than normal, evidently a good look for the TV star. “Today Conan O'Brien came into my work and not only bussed his own table, but also was wearing a sick motorcycle jacket and looked like he had just woken up, a sexy bedhead look," said an employee who wishes to remain nameless. Apparently O’Brien ordered two almond lattes and some baked goods, thus far unspecified.

Aside from fueling up on coffee and pastries, it’s not clear if O’Brien has any particular agenda in town, though considering the timing, he and his wife, a Seattleite, are probably spending Christmas with her parents for Christmas. The comedian joked this summer about trying to use the travel ban to avoid visiting them:

Update, 12/21/17, 6 p.m.: Sticking to the greater downtown area, O’Brien and family dined at Wild Ginger last night: A rep from the restaurant said the comedian ordered chicken potstickers and kung pao chicken. He also shared a selfie of himself today in front of the Monorail, hashtagging the Tweet with some references to arguably the most famous of the Simpsons episodes he wrote, Marge vs. the Monorail.

Anyone else seen signs of #TeamCoco around town? The comments and the tipline are open.
