“If coffee, science and art had a baby it would be named Olympia Coffee Roasters. Local, new age, and classic. Bringing you a coffee like no other. We recommend you try their pour over. Sure the espresso is good but their coffee is meant to move slow and create a full body cup of coffee with specific note that will make you melt. You can't find coffee anywhere else in town like this. This location is small and quaint. To get the FULL sit down experience we recommend heading downtown to their 4th Ave location.”

Café
“A quiet cafe with great food and an adequate coffee bar. There is outdoor seating in the summer so that this small venue can accommodate quite a few people. You can call in your coffee order, and have it ready for you to take on that nice morning walk, or for an early ferry run. The breakfasts are reknown, the burgers very satisfying, and some people come back again and again for their GF Fish and Chips. ”
