Great food and great coffee. My fave 2 blends are Baby Island and Smuggler's Cove. You can also buy their homemade granola which is so delicious. All of their food is excellent. Vegan friendly too! It's fun to sit outside and enjoy the sun!

My wife and I make it over to Whidbey Island two or three times a year. The main draw is the restaurants in Coupeville, but we make it down to Langley around mid day and have a bite at Useless Bay Coffee. Great coffee, and good grilled sandwiches, like at the better airport concessions. Then back to Coupeville for dinner.

When they served dinner, IT WAS FANTASTIC! They don't any more. Supposed to have this really great coffee they roast themselves, but I don't find it anything special. Have found there pastries to be totally lacking. Muffins taste like sawdust. Don't waste your money unless you are one of the groupies that hangs out there.

Besides the coffee, try the Fish Tacos! Fish was fresh, delivery was quick, and price was right. A great bargain!

We have visited Useless Bay for breakfast 5 times and have had a great experience each time. Our favorite is the breakfast burrito. Of course the coffee is not to be missed. We just finished our last bag and will be heading back to stock up.

My sister and I stopped here on our overnight visit from Seattle. We both had a delicious soup and salad for lunch. We couldn't wait to return for a latte the next morning, which turned out to be just as wonderful. Very friendly and inviting place, plus quick service. Appeared to be a favorite of the locals.

Stopped in on the way to the ferry. Had a very good cup of drip coffee along with the an order of hash with eggs. The hash was pretty spicey but the way I liked it. I didn't have to put the usual hot sauce on.

We just got some fresh coffee but could have so much more! Lots of sandwiches and salads and bakery items to choose from but we had dinner plans elsewhere. That said, the coffee was great! You would expect a somewhat smaller interior in this small town coffee shop but there is lots of seating inside and out. It has a... More
