Bargreen Coffee Co.
Bargreens has been roasting and selling coffee out of Everett since 1898, so it’s the oldest coffee place in town by far. The storefront is a cozy, homey place to spend a morning, sitting on a leather stool at a wood counter. There are large coffee roasters humming behind the counter, filling the small space with toasty warm aroma of roasting beans. Also, this place is so affordable, you’ll almost feel guilty.
Best for: drinking a great cup of drip coffee in a diner mug beside a bunch of Everett old-timers. Don’t come looking for latte art or interesting single origin coffees.
