Stopped by for latte and espresso to go and had to wait too long! Other orders filled before mine even though they came after me! Coffee good but about average for this area.

Every time we are in Langley, we take a coffee break at Useless Bay Coffee Company. The coffee is consistently among the best.

If you sick of Starbuck or McDonald, this is a good place to go. Have plenty of outside and indoor seats. Panini is wonderful!

Stopped by here one morning for coffee and breakfast. The coffee was fantastic and my girlfriend's latte was decorated like an artist. The food was also very good.
