We know coffee, and this coffee is great. Beautifully roasted with a smooth flavor, the baristas know how to make a drink the baked goods were fresh and tasty. We re visited on our way home and bought beans to go! I have a dancing Goat, coffee cup on my desk as I write to remind me of that wonderful... More

Beverages are okay, typical coffee house arrangement, predictable, but not exceptional. I've been on many occasions and there's almost always a line and not enough staff attending to patrons. Will I go again? Yes. Would I be just as happy elsewhere? Sure. Still feel that Starbucks provides better customer service. B&B is consistent, but not better, just consistently average.

Right downtown near shopping! Great tasting coffee and clean atmosphere. Nice casual seating. Not really set up to be kid friendly but then again it's coffee....

I buy coffee beans from Batdorf & Bronson for Christmas gifts. The coffee is great and a variety of coffee.

Honestly, I didn't expect to find such a great coffee in Olympia. I wasn't even planning to drink a coffee that day but the smell wafting in the street was so tempting! I walked into the coffee shop with my colleagues and it was wonderful coffee experience for all of us. Perfectly roasted and freshly ground coffee beans created super... More

Batdorf and Bronson is by far the best coffee out there. I have been drinking their coffee for about 10 years now and just never get tired of it.We even bring it to Hawaii with us on Vacation. Hawaii has good coffee but this coffee is in my opinion much better.

It's a great hangout place and I've had good coffee here, but my hot chocolate was disappointing. Not enough chocolate to milk and the chocolate flavor that was there was cloyingly sweet. Like the faint taste of a Hershey bar.

Nice ambiance- and a really good place to get some work done! Of course, the coffee is really good, too.

Full disclosure - I am a diehard Starbucks fan. Mostly because of their prevalence which makes it easy for me to get the same drink easily recreated wherever I am. But once in a while I will venture into B&B for a beverage and to enjoy the living room-like ambiance. Something that is not possible at the Starbucks a few... More

Great spot- beautiful inside, large, nice decor and many places to sit- bar and benches. Right next to the square. A must for cafe lovers. Little spendy, though.
