Coffee with a view? Check. Lots of pastries? Check. Savory sandwiches? Check. Lattes, espressos, chai? Check. Tables to rest your weary tourist bones? Check.

Great selection of coffee and chai drinks, all the baked goods are made with Einkorn flour (and ancient grain, better for you). The coffeehouse has a nice cozy feel.

BLTC is a great place. Very cozy atmosphere, right on the water, not far from the ferry terminal. They're serious about their coffee here, and they have nice quiche and baked goods (the gingerbread was seriously gingery - could back off of that a bit)....More

A great cool place to visit. You can make your own coffee. Service is just awesome and so are the views. Wish we had more time.

We had pastries and coffee. It was perfect with a lovely view. We split a slice of spinach quiche and a mixed berry danish to satisfy both sweet and savory.

What excellent views with tables inside and out overlooking the water. Locally roasted beans were incredible. We went there each day of our visit. Highly recommend.
