Cute tables, friendly counter staff, mountains of coffee — what’s not to like about this bakery-cafe just across the street from famed Cynthia’s? Tomato tart was superb but ham-cheese croissant was a little flat. The olive oil soaked oversized bread sticks were an instant favorite!...More

I only stopped here for a quick mocha and a piece of lunch pizza. It felt like a more locals kind of place than the coffee shops closer to the ferry. If I lived on Friday Harbor, this would be my kind of place.

We always stop here for a latte and pastry on every trip to FH. Pasteries are baked on site. Crispy. Try the "days" pie. Both Berry and rhubarb were great just wish they were larger. The prices have gone up compared to a year ago....More
