Great coffee in a nice downtown setting

Great coffee in an inviting environment. There are lots of places to sit and relax in this large open space.

Stopped here for breakfast when traveling south on I-5. They serve a very nice dark roast, with which I had their excellent plain doughnuts (it's hard to find good plain donuts). This place had a nice local feel, with warm wood decor. The counter folks were very friendly. We'll definitely plan to stop again on a future trip.

This is a must stop if you come to Olympia. The tasting room is located by the Olympia's Farmer's Market and you get a chance to try Batdorf and Bronson's wonderful coffee. The people are very nice and knowledgeable.

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.
