About Us



Welcome! Bus Stop Espresso started in 1993 as a coffee cart on the corner of 65th & 8th NE. In 1995, Bus Stop Espresso moved into the adjacent former Copy Mart and became an Espresso Cafe. Bus Stop Espresso has been a fixture in the Roosevelt neighborhood that has undergone many changes. 


Bus Stop Espresso is ever evolving. We are constantly working at providing our customers the best experience possible. We use Mukilteo Coffee, a farm direct, fair trade, sustainable roaster on Whidbey Island. We use only the freshest ingredients for our Gyros, Falafel, Salads, and breakfast sandwiches.   


We appreciate you coming to our website and hope to see you in soon!
