A Cup of Joe to Go 

Need some caffeine to get you going in the morning or perhaps that afternoon pick-me-up? Well, you won’t find big corporate coffee shops here on San Juan Island. However, you will find small, friendly cafe’s with personable, down-to-earth employees. Oh, and coffee. Darn good coffee, much of which is locally sourced or roasted. We are in the Pacific Northwest after all.

Don’t miss out on a great cup of joe at Crows Nest Coffee Shoppe located on the main drag of Friday Harbor. This hole in the wall cafe carries a nautical theme with a great local vibe and knowledgable baristas. There is really only enough room to do one thing here...get an exceptionally great cup of coffee. Or smoothie. Or blended drink. Crows Nest proudly brews Espresso Vivace Italian style coffee based out of Seattle, WA and offers small bites such as sandwiches and burgers at affordable prices.
