Co-op Bakery Cafe regulars enjoy settling in with a satisfying drink from our organic espresso and smoothie bar along with a bite from the grab-n-go case or a sweet or savory treat from the bakery.
Hang in there … patio weather is coming. Until then, warm up with the perfect cup!
The late winter months in Bellingham can truly feel like a state of limbo. The signs of spring boldly show themselves, but the damp chilly air still lingers. Buds on trees and the return of chirping birds bring excitement for the changing season. But as we of the Northwest know so well, those cold mornings and evenings will stick with us, possibly until we get our lawn chairs out for the Fourth of July.
The Community Food Co-op Bakery Café has some delicious seasonal offerings that are sure to please and to keep you warm through spring.
We are looking forward to the changing season for one more important reason: spring time means more patio time! Our patio, perched above the corner of Holly and Forest streets, is the perfect place to sit and enjoy your coffee. Bring your laptop, your friend, even your dog, and we’ll provide the perfect setting for a lazy afternoon enjoying coffee al fresco.
Local, organic, and crafted with skill, care, and a friendly smile—that’s the Co-op Bakery Café difference.
For Valentine’s Day, we feature our delicious Raspberry Mocha. Our talented bakery staff has created a delightful raspberry syrup, as well as a rich chocolate syrup. Our skilled baristas blend these handcrafted syrups with our exceptional espresso blend, creating the perfect marriage of bitter and sweet. (Oh, and did you know our housemade chocolate syrup is vegan? Raspberry Mochas for everyone!)
Lavender London Fog
The London Fog is a specialty beverage said to have originated in Vancouver, B.C., so we took a cue from our northern neighbors and put a fun twist on this classic. We are proud to feature the Lavender London Fog. A luxurious blend of Earl Grey tea, steamed milk, a dash of vanilla, and our housemade lavender syrup is sure to bring comfort on a chilly spring day.
For those with a more adventurous side, try our Lumberjack Fog. This unique concoction calls for a smoky Russian Caravan tea in place of Earl Grey, and delicious maple syrup in place of vanilla. Some say it reminds them of a lumberjack breakfast, as the smoky tea conjures up thoughts of sizzling bacon, while the maple notes are reminiscent of a stack of pancakes.
