Must go here and get either the white mocha or try the lavender latte. Staff was super friendly too! Prices are about the same as any coffee shop. Wished this place was here in Az!

We ran in here while waiting for the ferry to leave. The coffee was super good and everything looked homemade. The staff was super friendly and we got some coffee and then a great pack of hand made salted caramels. I might have to come back just for these caramels. MMMM

This is accessible from parking lot for cars lined up for the ferry. You walk across the street and up the stairs. Good coffee drinks and choice of pastries as well.

Found this place off the main street in Friday Harbor and was pleasantly surprised. Nice coffee done just as we wanted it and nice cakes. Well worth a visit.

Pretty good coffee and food shop, although it was too polished for my tastes. It seemed like if the lights were lower a jazz club might start up instantly. I only had a cinnamon roll here that was pretty good. The kids had hot chocolates and liked them but, hey...they are just got chocolate, not a science project. This was... More
