Have tried Black Drop several times at various times of the day. Tables are very tightly packed. Hard to hear each other talk. Each time we have visited, we felt like outsiders when we placed our order. It is located in central Bellingham near many businesses and apartments, so it would make sense that staff caters to locals. Coffee, latte,... More

A small-town small-space coffee shop where I never had a disappointing drink. So many gallons of espresso have pumped through me thanks to The Black Drop and it has enlivened me. Kind staff with a tight space that makes service a little slower than Starbucks, but no slower than any other local coffeehouse.

They support Black Lives Matter, and their coffee tastes burned. The servers are snotty, even though they are hippies. Wont be back.

Too cool local coffee shop. Makes a stranger feel like a long time Bellingham settler. I was supposed to bike around town but once settled really enjoyed seeing people just come and go with hugs and smiles and babies bouncing on knees.

Cute little coffee shop with really nice staff. We walked right in to order and shortly after there was a small crowd wanting to get in on the espresso. I ordered a lavendar mocha. It was really good and super interesting. I highly recommend!

Well the coffee was good, but after I ordered and sat down to wait I heard the baristas (both gentleman) mocking me for looking like a "cookie cutter." One time customer, never to return!

I've been suggested by my friend as I always tried coffee in some different places here in Bellingham. I can say coffee here are mostly taste too much water, or sugar, or taste nothing. I came from Indonesia, one of the countries who supply coffee worldwide, and maybe my expectation about coffee is different because I used to get coffee... More
