Great coffee in Langley

After our wonderful overnight stay at the Boatyard Inn, we stopped in at the Useless Bay Coffee Company for coffee and scones--delicious!

You can tell this is a local favorite as soon as you walk up to the business. Great outdoor seating area to relax, chat, and watch Langley go by. Lovely latte.

Enjoyed our morning lattes and tea. Good service and very friendly, laid back staff. Didn't have breakfast but there were a lot of people doing just that. A popular breakfast spot.

I'd go there everyday if I lived nearby. They have a wonderful selection of sandwiches which are very tasty. Great coffe and I am a coffee snob. They have lots of other things but couldn't try everything, no time. There is outdoor seating and one night they had a FANTASTIC marimba "concert" on the patio. It was free, wonderful and... More

Love the idea of keeping it local, but would love to have more engaging baristas...part of the fun of a local shop.

Long lines handled efficiently on Saturday after Thanksgiving. Lovely looking coffees. But ALL our drinks were cold! Lovely looking pastries but they didn't offer to heat them until asked and they were not very tasty cold or warmed. Yup, disappointing.

Whidbey island is about the ocean, rugged land, strong people, and coffee. Useless Bay roasts some fine coffee. The food is simple, burgers, sandwiches, salads. You order at the counter, pay, and eventually the food is delivered to your table. It's a good place for a meal. Eat outside if the weather is nice. Watch the birds and people flit... More
