A nice local hangout with indoor and outdoor seating. The coffee drinks are excellent and locally roasted. For breakfast, I like the huevos rancheros and they make a superb Baja style shrimp taco for lunch. Sandwiches and pastries are top notch

Cute decor but coffee was too strong. The breakfast was very much like cafeteria food at twice the price. Very bland and tasteless. We were not greeted when we arrived and being from out of town we had to figure out the seating and ordering process ourselves. Would not go back.

Be prepared for a throw-back experience to the 70's (in my case) where you could walk into a rustic cafe in Sun Valley and see friends and smell the bacon and they would call out your name or bring your order to your table when they saw you sit down. A must-visit place when you're in Langley. LOVE the "side... More

This is a super cute building with a great patio that serves really good coffee! Whether just stopping for a caffeine boost or some sweets or breakfast, this is a place worth venturing to downtown Langley. Parking is easy so walk the town as you enjoy a cup or sit on the patio and watch everyone stream in and out.... More

Langley is a scenic village on Whidbey Island that begs one to park and wander around. The UBCC looked like a place where the locals gather so we stopped for coffee and sure enough, everyone knew each other by name. Coffee was great with friendly service and food offerings were above average. Breakfast sausage is made on premise, bacon and... More

This garden cafe has a lovely vibe that starts with the location and decor as you walk in, and is immediately affirmed by the staff who not only look after you well - these folks know how to make a great latte. A delightful spot to sit and enjoy a cuppa - and to watch the regulars' convivial interaction.

Always stop by Useless Bay Coffee Co when in town. Very pleasant atmosphere, great, friendly staff and terrific coffee. Breakfast and lunch items as well. Lovely outdoor seating where you can watch the comings and goings of the locals. Or find a cozy spot inside.
