Good local coffee and light fare cafe

Nice local coffee shop. The drinks were good, the food also was very well prepared and appetizing. Nice ambience, very unhurried, lots of space inside and out. No real view of anything but we certainly would go back

Outstanding place for coffee, breakfast or lunch. Very happy that it offered gluten free options- sandwiches and sweet treats. Coffee better than Starbucks!

When the server arrived with my soup, I asked "What was dropped in the soup today?" She looked embarrassed and replied, "Part of the audio system." I calmly asked. "What part?" She said, "The I-pod." I told her... More

My husband and I headed to The Bean Cafe one morning for some cappuccinos, bagels, and muffins. My banana nut muffin was by far THE BEST I've ever had! I had to go back the next day before we left Friday Harbor to take one with me on the ferry ride back to Seattle.

We enjoyed the coffee and the atmosphere but wished some sort of fruit was available to go along with the sandwich lunches (other than chips).

Quintessential friendly coffee bar. Great and large sandwiches. The staff is far beyond competent. They are efficient as well as gracious, pleasant. It became our go to place for coffee.
