There were lots of tables both inside and out, and we enjoyed iced coffees and snacks in their garden, listening to live music. It was a real treat.

There are places you just miss being able to go to on a regular basis and this is one. The breakfast panini are so good and their pancakes are off the chart. Love sitting inside or out and the owner and staff are the best. Just a great place.

We were here two times this month while the island for special events. Both nights the food was great and the atmosphere laid back and fun. The staff was lovely and accommodating!

While adventuring on Whidbey Island for the first time, we discovered the Useless Bay Coffee Company. The lattes were delicious and large; the fresh pastry selection made you want to buy one of everything; and the atmosphere was great with wood floors, eclectic tables, and artwork on the walls. Definitely recommend this place!

A dry cappuccino may not be common anymore but I watched the young woman take great care to make perfect foam and fill the cup to the top with it. It was perfect, like velvet on top of spectacular espresso.

The granola pancakes were the reason we went; great coffee, food, large portions and reasonable cost kept us coming back. It was a little surprising to discover that orders are placed at the coffee counter, but the staff was friendly, and delivered the food to our self-seat table. The double stack pancakes were soo big, we had left-overs! An unexpected... More

We live in Port Townsend and sometimes take the ferry to Whidbey, hike at Saratoga, then stop in Langley for a bite to eat at Useless. Today my husband asked for a veggie panini and left it up to the crew to decide the ingredients, so long as it was vegetarian. He got a wonderful composition of fried egg w/spinach... More

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!
