Good coffee and they have a great selection of used books. Too tempting to buy lots. Great that they are a job training site also. Have a good cup of coffee and support the community.

The SWC is a casual, clean, comfortable spot to have a great cup of coffee and a simple nosh. The menu is kept simple so that youth can learn excellence while gaining experience. The used bookstore and coffeehouse offer a place for teens to learn customer service and retail management. What a gift from the community to support families and... More

I do like this place. The interior is clean and inviting. The books are well priced. The coffee service is complete and is mostly done right. I have only had one menu item, the breakfast bacon wrap, and it was delicious. The baked goods - meh. More effort needs to made in this department. This is a training program for... More

Wonderful, warm atmosphere in the heart of Langley. Hang out, read books, drink coffee and have a snack. Great place for young people and taking in a little sun on their beautifully planted terrace

This place is welcoming as well as great food and coffee. They help teach kids how to work in a food place as well as barista and they do a really really great job at both. I have had to bring back my coffee and they thanked me and made me another asap. Worth a stop and if you need... More

I am always curious when a place self proclaims it's self "a community hearth" or "Community builder" I really don't mean to be mean, but with two small children in tow I didn't want or need to wait 15 minutes for the manager to show the very cute teen trying to make coffee. Everybody was very pleasant but compared to... More

Enjoy walking thorough this area on a sunny summer day. There are lots of shops and interesting places to duck into. I especially like the used bookstore and their food fare.

South Whidbey Commons Coffeehouse is where South Whidbey youth learn about the world of work, as well as how to make a delicious latte. This bookstore/coffeehouse typifies Langley's love of community, art, and opportunities for youth. You feel the welcome when entering the cozy space, and become part of the scene as you interact with a young barista learning how... More
