Loved the chicken salad

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

I love the atmosphere of the place and the cappuccino was terrific. I wish that I could have stayed and hung out inside but my friend had a dog so we couldn't. I'd definitely go back.

Great place for a coffee and quick breakfast. They have oatmeal, breakfast sandwiches, pastries and more. We needed a place for a fast and easy breakfast before heading out on our island adventures and this place was perfect.

during our 4 day stay in Friday Harbor we ate here twice because of the wonderful paninis. Low key cafe with seriously yummy food. We enjoyed the breakfast sandwich, turkey panini, and various drinks.

Five of us, including a 2 year old, found delicious options for lunch at The Bean Cafe last weekend. We ordered grilled chicken ceaser salads, a chicken salad on greens, a roast beef sandwich, and a yogurt berry parfait for our meals, and followed that up with wonderful home made cookies. The meals were generous and nicely presented, and the... More

When I order a cup of coffee, I want to taste the coffee and not a burned or over roasted cousin. This was smooth, mellow and so flavorful. The staff were very accommodating. And, they have a live feed of the harbor so you can see when the ferry arrives. Wonderful!

The pastries are amazing, the coffee is delicious, and the wifi signal is strong! We went there twice during our vacation.

Stopped in for a coffee. Decent sized place to sit and have a cup coffee. Outside seating too which was nice and along a few shops. Coffee was okay. Wasn't bad, wasn't awesome.

What other explanation could there be for a 20oz latte with an extra shot that was made with about 6oz of milk and steamed to death? Upon feeling the weight of the cup, I immediately knew it wasn't right & politely asked if they were sure I had the right cup. Answer was yes & no interest shown in making... More

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. I ordered the 16oz latte not really understanding the size (since coming from Australia I work in mils), when my bowl of coffee turned up I thought for sure it would just like... More
