I'm bored with Starbucks' sameness, but will admit, on average, they do a pretty consistent job of serving decent-to-good coffee. I'm an espresso fan, and as much as I love independent coffee houses, I usually end up throwing my orders away because they're too bitter. Someone said that "...espresso should taste like freshly roasted coffee smells." Turns out, that's easier to say than to do and explains why most people battle bitterness by dumping a ton of sugar and milk into their drinks. Not so for Honeymoon Bay (knock on wood). I've been over a dozen times and will keep coming back. They even roast their own beans, so prepare for a sensory treat when you walk in the door. It's a funky local experience and their free Wi-Fi is blazingly fast (18 mbs the last time I was there; Starbucks is usually around 1.2 mbs). The owner/roaster obviously cares about his craft and the staff is friendly. Lots of choices. I'm told that they started out wholesale-only, supplying restaurants, etc., , however, their taste got so popular that they now serve retail at the store. I have friends who drive all the way from Seattle just to restock their supply of Honeymoon beans. If I were to wish for something, it would be for later hours, regular local entertainment (poetry readings, music, whatever), and some restructuring of the seating to promote easier socializing. They're tucked out of sight, just a block northeast of Walmart. Worth the effort.
