Organic coffee, only the very best coco and vanilla sugar for your perfectly brewed coffee. They make sure to use the best ingredients with a straight take on coffee. If you want no funny stuff (syrups and such) in your latte or cappuccino then this is the place. Jen the coffee mama is great to talk to for local tips and more. She also makes a perfect cup of coffee with excellent service.

Where to find the absolutely best cup of java on Orcas Island? Right in the center of Eastsound, in an unassuming lobby-turned-cafe, where vintage art and furniture meet secondhand children's clothes. (which makes sense on an island where The Exchange, the town dump's shopping spot, draws more Sunday vistors than any church on the island). Owner & Barista Scott is fiercely devoted to a pure, Italian model of the coffee art...no gigondo cups, no flavored syrups. A truly sublime Americano...as good as any I've had anywhere. There's not tons to eat, but what there is is perfect...fresh, handmade, small-batch cookies and brownies made of organic ingredients by a few of the best bakers on the island. Scott's place is my reward after a day's hard work....a split shot Americano, a well-worn vintage armchair, and wonderful music from Scott's incredible cd archive; it doesn't get any better.

I love my cappuccino's and search out the best place wherever I travel to. Straight shots takes it for orcas. Great expresso blend, staff friendly and informative. I'll be back and remember you. Thanks.

Why go elsewhere for coffee when Scott serves up the finest cup on the island? Straight Shots calls me out of bed every (late) morning like a siren song. Pegasus beans roasted on bainbridge island in their best and purest forms: 'straight shots' of espresso or the house 'drip' made with a toddy concentrate, which seems naturally sweeter than traditional drip due to its lower levels of acidity. Don't ask for 'fat free' this or 'sugar free' that, and know that you must make a choice between a single or double shot, in a short (8oz) or tall (12oz) cup, regardless of your beverage, and then prepare yourself for a mighty, mighty fine cup of coffee.
