“Best Coffee in Olympia”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

The downtown Capital Blvd location in always humming with people. It is eclectic and the coffee great. Smooth roasted flavors with lots of choices. The place where you drink a great cup of coffee and the coffee does not bite you back

“This place is great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

It's nice to support independent entrepreneurs. Cute cafe, by the water, very friendly staff.

I'd be pleased to return.

It'd be nice if they had some music or poetry, etc.

“Better than Starbucks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012 via mobile

Batdorf & Bronson is 100 times better than any Starbucks nationwide. The staff are genuinely more friendly, happy and helpful. They want to make each experience a rewarding one so that every customer returns and brings a friend next time too.

The shop has a large floor plan which is accommodating to more customers. You can see your coffee being ground and made verses it already being done or done behind the scenes at Starbucks. At Bartdorf you know your getting a high quality cup of coffee everytime!

“Batdorf and Bronson Lacey Wa. ~ great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

I really enjoy this spot because it is large, very nice, and quiet. Many times coffee shops are a little too much noise if you are reading or studying. This one is located close to Lacey Transit so you can hop off the bus, have a cuppa, read, relax, and get back on the bus!
