We wanted a quick and casual place to have lunch on our last day. You can smell the delicious coffee as soon as you enter. Sandwiches and salads were fresh and delicious!

Sandwiches we ordered to go were good, service was poor. The girl taking our order was more interested in the people coming and going. When it was our turn to place our order she asked what I would like and just after I started to explain what I wanted she interrupted and yelled out to wish what I’m guessing were... More

By far the best value and food we had in Friday Harbor. I was starving so we shared a banana nut muffin while the lunch was being prepared. It was wonderful. The Black forest ham and cheese panini, with the bacon....oh, it was scrumptious. My husband and I shared and they gave him chips and me a beautiful salad on... More

I have been here twice and both times the guy at the front was less than cordial. He's just not very nice. He also seems to be the manager/owner. On my first visit I ordered a turkey & cranberry sandwich. I was going on a sailing trip so ordered it to go. Once I opened it up later it had... More

5 stars for the salted caramels, which are well worth the stop. Coffee was pretty good. Service left something to be desired. Our second visit was on a Saturday morning, and it was predictably crowded. We were just buying caramels (to bring home, for coworkers and friends, after we had tried them for the first time a few days prior),... More

The caramel I've had. The staff was a bit slow but that is the lifestyle for any islander. I want to get the caramel shipped to my house!

The coffee and all its variations is excellent at the Bean. What is often missed is it is also a great place to get lunch. The bakery selection is outstanding. The salads and sandwiches are with the visit. If you are waiting for the ferry this is 1 place that is worth your time.

i wouldn't go out of my way to stop here, but being one of the only coffee cafe's in town, it seems busy all of the time. They do offer a full menu and wifi which is nice.
