Better Living Through Coffee has very good coffee, and baked goods. Also if the weather is good you can sit out on the plaza and watch the boats. This is a good spot to hear some excellent live music by the street musicians.

My husband and I stopped in for lattes with a view. The low sun and calm wind this afternoon made the ferry passing the only movement on the water other than the seal and the gulls that entertained us. The coffee smells, quiet piano music,...More

A busy place but well worth it. Had an outstanding latte here on a recent visit to Port Townsend. And we were able to sit outside on the beach on a beautiful Fall day.

Stopped here for lunch. Nice place but quite busy when we were there. Slow service. Had a quiche and pea soup - both very good. Plus coffee of course which was excellent. Nice view over the water. Nice place
