My wife and I enjoyed coffee and a cinnamon roll for breakfast, then came back for lunch for the blackened salmon tacos. Great place to sit outside, enjoy your company, coffee, and the great little town of Langley. Tacos are amazing just a little on the hot side.

A casual cafe with setting inside and out, weather permitting. Good coffee(cappuccino's, lattee's,etc. plus a selection of panini sandwiches and pastries. Locals and tourist's come here. You order at the counter, then they bring it to you at your table.

Go for coffee, food, atmosphere, outdoor seating. All are excellent. Visit this special spot in Langley and take home some beans.

We were new to Langley and walking through the town looking for a place for breakfast. Found this restaurant and we had the best breakfast!! The Staff was really friendly and our meal among the flowers and in the sunshine outside just "made it". The food was excellent!

We ate breakfast here twice. Both were great experiences with tasty food and coffee. The staff seemed young but were very nice and knew what they were doing. My only mistake was not buying their coffee in a bag to take home. Nice to sit outside too.

We ate lunch at Useless on a busy Sunday afternoon. Although the place was quite busy, the service was excellent. The folks behind the counter stayed calm and accurately filled our orders. The food was delivered to us in a timely fashion. The hamburgers were made to order and delicious. The perfect blend of condiments to protein. My sil had... More

Took a day trip and stopped at UBCC for lunch. Menu limited to burgers, a few sandwiches and a few salads. Ordered at the counter and went outside to grab a seat. After at least a 30 minute wait noticed that many others had their food and we were still waiting. When we asked were told you're next! Waited....waited. Finally... More

Seriously, if you miss this place when your are in Langley, you are missing out. We sleepily headed there for coffee and saw other locals doing the same thing. We knew we hit the right spot. The coffee is to die for and the food was just fabulous. We had breakfast - eggs, bacon and those delish potatoes!! The store... More

Coffee shop - pretty much the best espresso drinks in Langley. Fun, funky artistic atmosphere. Sometimes they have music out in the garden. Breakfast foods and sandwiches are really good. Easily better than a Starbucks (not that there are any around here)

The omelette and coffee cured my jet lag! Loved the vibe and NW feel. Staff was great and made sure that our coffee drink was made right as he said he "got a little frisky with the vanilla" He made us take a drink to make sure that it was OK and said he would make it over again. It... More
