Smooth velvety coffee!

I love the coffee and the atmosphere is a combo off old world and hippy. Fits right in with downtown Oly. The worst part is the parking, either go in off hours or plan to walk .

Batdorf and Bronson have two coffee houses, as well as, a roaster and tasting room in Olympia. Having the beans roasted locally makes for the freshest and most flavorful coffee. They offer a large variety of beans including many from Africa, South America, and Latin America. We love to drop in, buy a couple of pounds of our favorite beans... More

Batdorf and Bronson is the reason why the NW is known for coffee. Delicious variety, excellently prepared and always consistent. Their food is local and wonderful.

Stopped here for some breakfast. The coffee was great and the barista was helpful explaining all the options. The almond croissant I had was heavenly. The layout in the store was very nice, normally coffee shops are cramped and you feel guilty squeezing between the tables, here there was space to get around without knocking anyone elses table.

Visit here each time I visit Olympia. After shopping, my friend and I always stop here for a rest and coffee. Different coffees of the day every day. The staff is great.

I went in to grab a London fog when the barista suggested to me a completely different (but slightly similar) drink. Loved it! The staff was all so friendly and helpful. The tea was amazing with a good selection. They also offer sweet snacks as well as breakfasty items. A good selection of gluten free and vegan options.

Batdorf and Bronson is a straightforward independent coffee shop. They sell their blends in and around Oly, to different restaurants and coffee stands. Their drip coffee is TOP NOTCH. For my taste, their espresso runs a little smooth, lacking the bite of Starbucks. But no worries, just add an extra shot to any order. Service is TOP NOTCH. Jon, who... More

The first coffee roaster in Olympia, and it soon gained a national reputation. In one of the first articles in the New York Times about the nascent premium coffee roasting industry, the writer kept badgering the head of the national trade association to tell him which of his many members' roasts was his personal favorite. The industry rep obviously didn't... More
