I stumbled across this cafe and wine bar while walking around old town Mt Vernon and decided to try it. I'm so glad I did. I have just recently moved into the Mt Vernon area and have been scouring the place for a good coffee shop. I am really particular when it comes to my cappuccinos and I had yet... More

Located in the old downtown part of Mount Vernon, Ristretto Coffee Lounge is a skinny, deep, shoebox-shaped coffee shop and wine bar. We were there in the early afternoon on a Thursday. There were numerous patrons seated; not deserted but certainly not crowded. We ordered the regular black coffee, medium roast, and to my mouth it had a bitter after-taste.... More

Very happy to come down and buy coffee from a local business to support my Skagit business community. The coffee also is very good and sold in a very classy establishment as per my photos.

I live near Mount Vernon and had noticed this place, but not gone in until a couple days ago. The notion of a "coffee lounge and wine bar" intrigued me, but I just tended not to be in Mount Vernon at times conducive to either beverage. That changed a couple days ago when my wife and Istopped in for a... More

Americano and pumpkin bagel. Perfection! Why did it take so long to discover this place? Love the decor with hardwood floors, comfy chairs and local artwork.

A double espresso macchiato and we're ready for a long day ahead! Excellent service and impressive coffee in a lovely naturally lit cafe!

We always enjoy a visit to Ristretto for coffee, especially on a cool day. The prices are less than St****** and the vibe is "local". We have not yet enjoyed wine and beer in the evenings.

Parking is normally very easy on the street for Ristretto. Service is fast and friendly, and the pastries are great. There is plenty of space to sit and enjoy you coffee while getting your email. By the way the WiFi works great. Ristretto is now my place for coffee in Mount Vernon. I am sure that it will also become... More

Love this little place. The coffee is great and comes in nice, big cups! My favorite is the Americano but I'm not into milk. My husband enjoys their lattes with and without flavors. The sandwiches, salads and pastries are always good and fresh. Some comfy seating and you'll feel at home reading, writing or using your computer. Nice staff, too.... More
