Loved the chicken salad

Large shop with view of the harbor. Great salads and uncoffee drinks (latte, cappuccino). Service is a little slow.

Their advertisement in the local tourist map said it had the 'BEST' coffee in town. I was sceptical as the USA is not known for great coffee.

My wife and I frequent this coffee shop whenever in Friday Harbor. They serve great coffee and snacks. Stop in while waiting for the ferry, for a recharge just after getting off the ferry or while just walking the Friday Harbor shops. Wifi is available and there are quite a few tables.

Located off the street, this place is a bit hard to find, but the fare is exceptional and you get to meet the locals. In addition to great coffee and pastries they also have café fare for lunch or brunch. The view of the ferry landing is great and the people watching exceptional

We stopped here four times on our weekend trip to San Juan Island! They have great sandwiches, good coffee and the cookies are delicious too. The staff were very friendly. There was a confusion about my drink order and they were super friendly and fixed it no problem. Just an all around good coffee shop!

Stopped in for an afternoon pick-up and found the owners quite friendly and informative. Good quiet atmosphere (everyone but us using Wi-Fi) and really great tasting coffee.

The drinks and baked good are good and the atmosphere is comfortable and bright. The breakfast burrito was nothing special, but that's the only prepared meal we ordered. Also, a great location near the ferry line.

Great place for an afternoon snack. The cookies were huge and delicious. It's a great place to wait for the ferry, especially if it is rainy!
