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.

We had lunch here and enjoyed the burgers and fish tacos. The coffee was good but not the greatest we've reached had. A nice venue with outside or inside seating and the Cantina next door.

Excellent coffee stop and good food, too. This is a very popular place so if you come around "regular" meal times, expect a line up and a longish wait for your food.

This Bistro is exactly what it purports to be: a small town, relaxed, coffee shop/restaurant which makes no pretensions. We had a very nice breakfast - the menu is diverse, and the service friendly. It can be very busy in the summer.... but so is everywhere it seems in the Pacific Northwest.

We like this place a lot. The food is good and staff is always good. Great lattes as well. You can eat inside or out depending on weather. Highly recommend.

YEARS AGO, Useless Bay was a nice place: good sandwiches, okay coffee, nice decor, and acceptable service. Now?!? It's good sandwiches, okay coffee, nice decor, acceptable service, and an atmosphere that borders on being circus-like. Over the years, the clientele (for whatever reason) have become obnoxiously loud. So of course the music goes up in volume and the customers talk... More

We had breakfast at Useless Bay Coffee Company and enjoyed the experience. The omelets were good, we liked sitting outside on the patio, and the restaurant is obviously popular with locals. If you're interested in walking around downtown Langley, this a great place to eat before you start.

Thank siloamjim
