Their salmon/cream cheese/spinach/tomato bagel was so good I had it two times. Their capuccino and latte are excellent. On a busy morning, service can be slow but the wait is worth it.

We dined here for lunch for the first time on our annual week-long visit to San Juan Island. We all had grilled Paninis and they were excellent, with crispy flavorful grilled panini bread and fresh, flavorful ingredients. I had their special of the day, which was a delicious combination of black forest ham, red pepper, cream cheese, red onion, and a wonderful sauce whose ingredients elude my memory but was very tasty. Their everything cookie - with chocolate chunks, macadamia nuts and coconut - was vaporized by my kids. Prices - like most everywhere on the island - were on the high side, but the quality was top drawer.

We had breakfast at the Bean Cafe during our trip to Friday Harbor. The coffee was great and the variety of pastries were fresh and tasty. I would recommend this for a light breakfast or mid-day snack.

Be cautious if you have a ferry to catch. They were extremely busy and had a long delay on food orders and were being sloppy with too many cooks in the kitchen. We ordered 2 breakfast burritos w/o cheese and a bagel with PB. First attempt, burritos had cheese (I'm severely lactose intolerant, so no go for me) and a PB&J sandwich in place of the PB bagel. They took it all back. 10-15 min later, they gave us our new burritos, with, you guessed it, cheese. Third attempt and another 10-15 min, we finally got them w/o cheese. Not surprisingly, they also forgot about the bagel until we reminded them with the 3rd pickup. The sandwiches were fine, but not worth the long wait.

A quick stop for a snack to get out of the rain yielded some great coffee and scones. The service was friendly. If they have them out, get a pack of homemade caramels. Wow.
