This is one of our favorite places on Whidbey Island. Casual, sit inside or out, often great local live music, the best coffees, yummy and potentially healthier food choices, nice, friendly staff.

We ate here outside this morning amongst a fantastic accordion player, dogs, locals, tourists, kids and 2 bocce ball courts. Delicious Huevos Rancheros- I asked for the sauce on the side because I was told it's a little spicy. It came with 3 different sauces on the side (2 green, 1 red) and home style potatoes. I liked the red... More

It is impossible for someone who has not visited this establishment in Langley to know how good a coffee house can be. The outside eating area is festooned with beautiful, edible plants and flowers. Inside the smell of the coffee ground on site will make you swoon. I can't say any more because I'm tearing up. Okay, maybe that last... More

This was our first stop on Whidbey Island. From the outside it was really cute and charming. As soon as we walked in the restaurant/cafe it was complete chaos. There was no line, people (including my group) were confused as to where to stand or order. The entrance was congested with (confused) people coming in and out. We ordered lunch... More

Very local scene with retirees enjoying quiet chilly morning, excellent coffee and good breakfast selections. Nice artsy ambiance displaying local art.

During my two days visiting Langley, I had at least 4 lattes from here! They were all delicious! In addition to excellent coffee, they also have good breakfast and excellent sandwiches! A must go when in town!

I love their coffee, although it also depends on who is making it. I ordered a latte w/hazelnut and found it a tad too strong, but maybe it was just me. I've ordered pastries there twice, once in the afternoon and once in the morning. I was disappointed both times. I'm a pastry snob and I know a good pastry!... More

Dropped by for a cappaccino at 10 a.m. on a Monday and they had a wonderful gal singing with a fellow with well accomplished guitar skills - didn't eat any of the yummy offerings but the coffee was terrific and the atmosphere wicked - the patio area looks awesome to for a warm day

We were up early and looking for a place to get something to eat. We saw some people outside and decided to try it. It has a very local, comfortable vibe. We had a strawberry chocolate croissant and we were hooked! I then had the ham and cheese croissant. Both very delicious. A fun place. Great way to start your... More

From the outside, this coffee shop appears small. Step inside though and be surprised. The décor and vibe are great. It's friendly, fast-paced, and everything delicious. They were very busy, but service was fast, attentive, and there was plenty of seating inside and out. They sell coffees, pastries, breakfast, burgers, beer, etc. We shared the Havana Panini. It was similar... More
