True, I know the folks that run it, but that is part of the appeal of this great coffee house in Bellingham. At the corner of Grand and Champion Streets, the Black Drop has free dopio Fridays (but, please, don't forget to tip your barristas--sheesh), and a wide array of delicious mocha variations and fancy tea drinks. Now, yippee!, they've... More

My family loves the Drop! In a nice central location near the Mount Baker Theater, this famliy-owned shop serves some of the best coffee around. They're constantly evolving their delicious menu, offer seasonal drinks, and since they're so close to the theater, sometimes you MIGHT be able to catch a celebrity before their show. They're also super committed to their... More

We make a point of ALWAYS stopping at the Black Drop Cafe whenever we are in or passing by Bellingham. Yes, it is worth a diversion off the I5 just to get a cup of coffee, I kid you not. Our all-time favorite is one of the house specialty lattes, the Level 10 Fireball, a 'Chipotle Breve Mocha', but I... More

While walking around downtown Bellingham, WA we came across the Black Drop and decided to have a coffee drink. We ordered the Black Widow and OMG it was deliciously decadent, rich and creamy all at the same time. It is a strong coffee drink but being WA natives, that's all we drink. Enjoy!

Went to Bellingham for a day of sampling espressos at a number of cafés. Interesting experience. By the end I realized that the people of Bellingham really like old-school roasts. Black Drop was my first stop of the day. I really needed an espresso by this time. I have to say, it wasn't bad, the best old-school espresso I'd find... More

Love a good cup of coffee? No, I mean a GOOD cup of coffee. The little bit eccentric Black Drop is just the place to find it complete with nice little pictures in the foamy top. Did I say YUM?

It takes a while to get served but it's worth the wait. Friendly staff. Excellent macciato (the traditional kind). Wish they offered some manual brew methods (pourover, french press) and a selection of coffees.
