As a Seattle native, coffee is important. My latte was done well and the espresso that they use is good I highly recommend the stop for a great start to your day.

They don't always have it, but they have an excellent Ethiopian coffee here. Great atmosphere with tables out back overlooking the marsh. And huge chocolate chip cookies baked fresh every day along with lots of other pastry choices.

Excellent coffee. Wish they had more offerings for breakfast and a t shirt in my size . Very small and not crowded. No lines to wait in and my coffee was ready in minutes!

Island mocha is still my favorite - Iced or hot.. Baristas are always nice and helpful. Fair trade products are available here as well. If you are a visiting the island, you need to stop by for coffee here - located in red fern village.. Near the back.

The Island Mocha is excellent. It's a mocha with a coconut kick! I enjoy the organic milk option! So much better than Starbucks mochas. They have fair trade products throughout the shop. I have picked up some beautifully unique gifts from Wake Up.

Just the best little coffee shop I've been to in a long time. The simple, interesting atmosphere makes you want to curl up with a good book or your electronic device and spend a little time. The coffee is EXCELLENT and so were the carefully crafted espresso drinks. We also loved the scones and cookies. We will make a stop... More

This is a "don't miss" when I am on the island. The coffee is excellent, and the baristas are always friendly. The service is slower paced than the major coffee shops, but that is part of the charm. Inside or outside seating is available, and there is free wifi. The coffee is Fair Trade, and they also have items for... More

Loved the coffee and service here. The house blend was great. Shane was awesome and gracious even though it was late and near closing time. We were out and about looking for a good coffee spot for after dinner. Definitely will come back.

Nice little spot, tucked in behind a bunch of other shops and restaurants, but worth the trip. We rode bikes from the Inn at sea Island and enjoyed coffee there 2 mornings in a row. The workers were kind and helpful. The coffee was good, but fairly limited bkfst offerings (no kitchen) - muffins, bagels, etc that they get from... More

Went there to start off our morning. It was a good choice. Nice place and the service was good. I got a mocha and my wife got the island mocha. Mine was good but hers was better!
