Cozy up at Pegasus Coffee on Bainbridge Island

While Seattle may be known as coffee central, our quiet island community is also all about the java. Pegasus Coffee is just one of the many Bainbridge Island coffee shops worth stopping in for a latte and a sweet treat. The old vine-covered brick building is a popular gathering place for locals and visitors alike. The covered outdoor seating area is perfect for a leisurely chat. You’ll be right next to the marina, which is the ideal post-treat stroll. 

Pegasus Coffee is an iconic business on Bainbridge Island and a historic leader in the coffee industry in the Northwest. Founded in 1979 by David Dessinger, this shop is a hub for visitors and locals alike for a beautiful latté, delicious fresh-baked treats, brunch, and special events. They also recently expanded to the Bainbridge Island Art Museum with a small cafe open to the public with an expansive outdoor patio space. Perfect for an iced coffee on a warm afternoon!

  3. Blackbird Bakery: A long-time Bainbridge fixture, Blackbird Bakery is the classic cafe vibe with wooden booths, beautifully iced cakes, and frothy espresso drinks. This is the best place to grab a decorated sugar cookie for the kids. 
  4. Cafe Hitchcock: For brunch and coffee drinks, this cafe outpost sits between Brendan McGill’s successful seafood venture, Seabird, and the bar space sharing the same name. Stop by for caffeine in the morning and a craft cocktail in the afternoon. 
  5. Cups Espresso: Just a block from our Bainbridge Island hotel, Cups is the most spacious coffee shop on the island, so it is best for those traveling with bigger groups or kids in tow. They have an excellent selection of breakfast and lunch options. 
  6. Commuter Comforts: Before or after you hop on the Bainbridge Ferry, this stalwart coffee stand is the perfect place to stop for a hot drink and snack before you board.
