Full disclosure - I am a diehard Starbucks fan. Mostly because of their prevalence which makes it easy for me to get the same drink easily recreated wherever I am. But once in a while I will venture into B&B for a beverage and to enjoy the living room-like ambiance. Something that is not possible at the Starbucks a few... More

Great spot- beautiful inside, large, nice decor and many places to sit- bar and benches. Right next to the square. A must for cafe lovers. Little spendy, though.

Ended up choosing to try the "local" place vs the Starbucks which was 4-5 stores down. Boy was that a great decision. One of the best mochas I've ever had and I've had a lot. Also got the spiced cider for the wife and she liked it.

Amazing doesn't even com closing to describing this wonderful coffee shop. First thing first, the aroma is intoxicating the moment you walk in the door. I always order a cafe latte. Don't forgot to talk the foam before putting in the lid, it's a must. Should you decide to stay a spell (which highly recommend, plenty of over stuffed comfy... More

This is a large shop with lots of seating and, most importantly, good coffee that they are careful to make properly. Certainly worth a visit in Olympia's neat old downtown.

Skip the Starbucks down the street and try this local option. Personable baristas, a variety of seating, and tasty coffee make this a good bet when you're in the area.

On a recommendation for the best coffee in Olympia, my group came into this venue. Situated in an older building, the staff were courteous and quick to welcome us and take our orders for cold and hot drinks. The building itself is interesting to look at, and there is art hung in the building and in the back by the... More

This place was just steps away from the farmers market. Perfect for a ace to get to of the heat and relax and enjoy coffee together.
