I am frequently leaving the island in the morning after business trips, this is a very nice little spot to get a solid cup of coffee and a bite to eat in the morning.

Lots of cafes and coffee shops cluster around Friday Harbor's ferry landing, but Bean is our favorite . . . Consistently good pastry, sandwiches, etc., very good coffee, many tables with views, and VERY FAST wireless Internet. Reviews noting the slow service when there are crowds . . . also testify to the place's popularity. Before or after, make sure that you go uphill one block to the island's best used bookstore--located in a cute Victorian house, with rooms and rooms packed full . . . Fair prices . . . Some rare island-history gems . . . A very nice maritime section just to the right when entering.

Spent three days at Friday Harbor and had lunch twice there. Great gluten free menu with a good selection of pastries and sandwiches. Coffee was great.

Very nice local gathering place with good nibbles and awesome hot chocolate. We enjoyed playing a game of Scrabble while we relaxed.

The Bean Cafe serves good lunch. The food quality is very good but the quantity is not that great. The ambiance is very pleasant, but the wait time is long. There is only one counter to place the order and one person prepares and serves the food. I think this is the reason for the long wait period. They can improve this and keep up the good service.
