The Place on Whidbey Island to Buy Your Coffee

The food is fantastic as I've said before but Coffee is in their name. We bring it back to Texas with us every trip and plan on having it custom labeled for Christmas presents this year. The only way to get a better coffee would be to hike into the jungle and harvest it yourself and even then... read more

If you want a latte, espresso, quick bite or a rousing conversation, UBCC is the spot to go in Langley. In summer, the lovely outdoor seating is adjacent a small stage area where local bands offer free entertainment. Can't miss with a stop at this location.

We stopped in for a bite of lunch in the afternoon and were very pleased with the daily special, which consisted of a cup of salmon chowder and spinach salad for me and cup of chowder and half a ham/cheese panini for my friend. It was tasty, filling, affordable, and served in a timely fashion with a smile! You know... More

We enjoyed a well prepared, well presented, and very delicious omlette breakfast. Because it was Sunday at about 11:00 am, the dining area was a bit crowded, cramped, and noisy.

We were driving through and stopped here for lunch. Was taken aback by the prices. This is after all a coffee shop. Had a burger which was okay, but nothing special. And I don't drink coffee.

Good latte & mocha. Service isn't quick but it gives you a chance to look around at the various coffee beans and other bits that are for sale.

Whether it's to grab a latte for the road with a delicious almond croissant, scone or other pastry--or you choose to sit and have an omlette--your choice will be a good one. The food is great and staff is very friendly. A fine local hangout.

Stopped off for a coffee during our drive round the island this weekend. Coffee was very good and the bar itself slightly unusual adding to its charm! Service a little slow but worth the wait.
