I love this place! Not only is their coffee great and expertly prepared, they have lots of very tasty gluten free items for those among us who are gluten sensitive. Beautiful setting right on the water with lots of comfy chairs and places to sit.

My only complaint is that it is too popular...lots of locals were swinging through and I had to wait and watch boats. Bummer! Life should be like this, good looking food, wifi, great coffee! And nice people working behind the counter...

Better Living Through Coffee first of all, has the most wonderful staff. Besides that, the food, be it fresh pastries in the morning or salads and soup in the afternoon is so good and fresh. They make quiches daily too. I highly recommend a visit...More

I love how they make the coffee right in front of us-pouring hot water over grounds to drip in a big mug. The atmosphere in their store front was one that we didn't want to leave! The view of the water below was wonderful

Just can't get my mind around the fact that they have regular milk, almond milk, coconut milk, but no soy! Food is great, coffee without soy, not so much

My favorite spot to hang out in Pt. Townsend. Good coffee, great chicken pot pie and baked goods. Lovely view and a nice relaxed vibe.
