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

There are several locations of B&B as it is known locally around Olympia and the coffee is good. The tasting room is fun to visit with knowledgable staff and tasting options. They do a lot of green in their facilities, and it is fun to learn more about it. They give free used coffee grounds for local gardeners.

This is one busy coffee shop. Located just a few doors down from a Starbucks. Highly recommend it here, my latte was delicious and the leather chairs are super comfy! Will be back soon!

I rated this coffee house excellent even though all we had was a couple cups of drip coffee so hard to evaluate. However, those cups were delicious and the place itself is spacious, well-lighted, and pretty. Coffee to drink there is served in real cups with a free refill.
