This is hands down the coolest coffee shop on the island. Mukilteo Coffee Roasters is on southern Whidbey but is worth a day trip if you are staying on North Whidbey. The coffee shop is outside Freeland in the woods surrounded by nature and nothing else. The coffee shop is a roastery that is renowned for its quality coffee and homemade baked goods. The bear claw was fluffy with light almond paste and basically changed my life. They have a huge wooden cabin type room with lots of windows, light, and trees you can see through the windows. Essentially you feel like you are in a cozy cabin in the woods. The space is gorgeous, and it is a hidden gem of the island known by the locals.
How to get here
Mukilteo Coffee Roasters has a location called cafe in the woods, that is on Whidbey Island outside of Langley and Clinton. The coffee shop is hidden in the forest off the main road and is a bit hard to find. This is nice however because there are not many people who know about this a magic wooden cabin nestled amongst the tall evergreen trees. There are fresh daffodils in the Spring on every table, and the is space equipped with ample seating making it a perfect place to work or hang out with friends. The coffee shop is off South Crawford Road and near Whidbey Air Park. The shop is south of Freeland on the 525. If you are coming from Freeland, you will make a left onto Crawford road and if you are coming on the 525 from Langley, you will make a right. Beware! One of the locations listed on Google Maps for the Coffee House is not correct and will take you to the middle of nowhere! So look for Crawford Road off the 525!

Their bear claw was the best one I have ever had in my life and I consider myself a self-declared connoisseur of baked goods. Their homemade cookies were huge and delicious as well. The chocolate chip cookie was to die for, and I wanted to eat one of all of their baked goods. The scones are also highly esteemed. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner and are known their 2-pound breakfast burritos served with salsa verde. This is one of the top 3 rated restaurants in the Langley area and is a hidden local favorite.
