Great service and a wide selection of drinks, baked goods, and light fare for breakfast and lunch. Great gluten-free oatmeal craisin cookies! Wifi and lots of tables.

Dirty coffee counter, and unbelievably rude staff. I watched the cashier look each customer "up and down" as if to disapprove. I wasn't the only one who noticed. On our way back to the inn at perry cabin (fabulous by the way) a couple stopped us and asked where we got the coffee. We promptly told them the name and... More

I hate to leave a poor review but our experience at Blue Crab coffee was really disappointing. We stopped by late in the afternoon to buy coffee based on the great reviews on Trip Advisor. We bought $50 worth of coffee, something to drink, and sat to cool off a bit. The two staff members who were working weren't very... More

I was shocked & sorry to see this review & it is NOT a typical experience when you come to Blue Crab Coffee Co. so I researched the sales & could not find where there was a single transaction in the afternoon for $50 of coffee in my store. I would ask you if perhaps you were in one of... More

Small vacation towns often have one main street. It's easy to walk from one end of town to the other, pausing to stop in shops that appeal. Doing just the main street in St. Michaels causes you to miss a less obvious gem. Blue Crab Coffee serves not just good coffee but a fine selection of teas (including several loose... More

Continuing my search for breakfast in the area. Coffee not as good as Rise Up. Cinnabon bun was filo dough and pretty poor at that. Oh well. Better to not be tempted. They used to have the best cupcakes here, but that was ears ago. I keep hoping they will come back.... Staff nice, pleasant place.

We're glad you liked our coffee. Our style is different than rise up. We prefer to light roast so more of the delicate nuances can be detected. We still do make the cupcakes but only as custom order/special occassion. Sorry to hear the cinnamon roll didn't live up to your expectations. It is a new item we're baking & are... More

My husband and I went here for some afternoon iced coffees. Coffee was very good and the coffee shop had a nice vibe. I asked the girl working there what coffees they would be brewing the next morning. One of them was Coconut which I love. We returned the next morning for some fresh brewed coffee, the coconut was delicious!!!... More

My wife and I were in St Michaels midweek and the choices (even in season) are limited to find an early morning coffee and/or tea. But, we found Blue Crab while walking around and looking at houses and gardens. It is easy to find, just one block off the main street behind the Acme Market. We stopped in several times... More

Very nice coffee shop with good selection of pastries and sandwiches. It is a block in back of the main drag so much less crowded than some others. Nice ambiance inside. Has a few outdoor seats but face the library parking lot.

Good iced coffees in a cozy old house a block off the main drag. A wonderful escape from the cars and visitors traversing through St. Michaels on busy Memorial Day weekend. Didn't try any pastry but it sure looked good.
