Didn't know about this spot til our last day on the island. Wish I had seen it sooner. We had literally hit every coffee shop in town before that. This is by far the cleanest and most professional. You can watch for the ferry on...More

Had a great cup of coffee here on a chilly day. Make sure you get a small because refills are only 49 cents! Also got a chocolate chip cookie which hit the spot. Highly recommend for the friendly service, free wifi and lots of seating.

We really enjoyed our artfully crafted lattes, steel cut oatmeal with berries and nuts, and the egg and ham burrito with roasted red peppers. My only wish would be a piece of fruit with the burrito vs. potato chips. Latte was so good!

This one was a bit of a fooler, it's a little off the "main path" so it was good that they had a sign on the sidewalk leading you in. Has nice atmosphere and the breakfast sandwiches were VERY good.

This place is right next to where you park your car to wait for ferry at Friday Harbor but tucked away behind a building so it is not the first coffee/restaurant you see next to the ferry. Excellent coffee and coffee drinks. The cookies are...More
