Order a regular coffee, not a latte, au lait, etc., for the best flavor
Try the gingerbread
Go early

“Fantastic coffee, great views and friendly atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

There is no shortage of coffee houses in Port Townsend, but my favorite is Better Living. Don't even think about visiting the Starbucks in the Safeway when you can enjoy a delicious cup of organic fair trade coffee at Better Living. The people are so friendly and the atmosphere is like being in your living room, but with a water view! They also have several tables with outside seating. The Loop D Loop is so yummy! Each cup is brewed to order, so it's hot and fresh.

“What a darling place to eat and read!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

This coffee house is warm and cheerful, with its windows facing the water and its very pleasant owner/staff. The quiche and salad we ate there last month was outstanding!! They use fresh, organic ingredients and the "proof is in the pudding" (or quiche). The coffee is absolutely wonderful, better than any we had anywhere else in Port Townsend and perhaps better than any coffee EAST of Port Townsend, as well (we traveled several thousand miles to visit PT).

The bathroom is exceptionally clean --- always an important consideration.

I want to go back as soon as possible:)
