This was our first time there. It is a good place to meet friends and was very suitable for conversation. The coffee was good and although the food choices were limited, they were quite tasty.

I was headed for a national chain coffee shop a few doors down when I came across Batdorf & Bronson Coffee Roasters. This is the type of coffee shop where you want to meet friends, spend time reading or studying, or just take a break. Large shop with high quality coffee. Fantastic discovery.

Locally roasted coffee, an acceptable cup. Not a big fan of the chai, but the hot chocolate ie and s delicious. Service is incredibly slow, almost as though it is a test of one's will. Rest assured that no hipsters were harmed during the preparation of your refreshment.

I was in Olympia for the day with my husband and 7 year old son. We're from Michigan and were on vacation in the Pacific Northwest. This coffee shop is wonderful! It's cozy and inviting inside.

In addition to great coffee, they sell locally made pastries, wraps, and pre-made salads at reasonable prices. Laid-back atmosphere, friendly baristas. They do not rush you out. This is not a multi-national corporation like their major competitor down the street. They offer free wifi, comfortable soft seating, and tables/chairs.
