( – St. Michaels, Maryland

How I heard of this place: Our trip to St. Michaels was an experience of firsts initiated by our dear friends and travel buddies from Arlington. This quaint, creamy coffee shop is no different.


Type of cuisine: “Blue Crab Coffee Company invites you to enjoy a cozy coffee house environment in beautiful St. Michaels, Maryland. Located in the historic Freedom’s Friend Lodge, Blue Crab Coffee offers great coffees, specialty drinks, baked goods and other delicious fare, as well as a variety of teas, whole bean and ground coffee selections.

Ambiance: Inside the big, yellow house behind the Acme building and adjacent to the St. Michaels Police Department house (complete with porch!), is the Blue Crab Coffee Co. one immediately takes a deep breath, taking in the aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans.

The hardwood floors lead down a narrow hallway interspersed with shelving holding large, glass jars of various coffee beans, and loose-leaf teas. The hallway opens into a room; to the left the cash register and barista haven,

to the right, large, wooden tables with wooden, pew seating against the wall, and hard chairs open to the walkway,

leading back towards the more intimate mini-tables and chairs at the back of the long, rectangular establishment. One lone television set, a parchment sail and seafaring photographs and Celebrate St. Michaels artwork make the decor.

What I ordered: A large latte ($4) for one, and a small Oregon Chai ($3.75) for the other, sharing a Banana Blueberry Muffin ($2.75);

and a Caramello ($4.25) enjoyed by my husband and I,


a side of Lemon Muffin with Lemon Icing ($2.75) with which to wash it down.

Lemon Muffin

What I loved: The Caramello – a caramel latte with whipped cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce. The flaky yet moist Lemon Muffin the perfect combination of sweet and tart.

Why I loved it: The Blue Crab Coffee Co. is a very cozy coffee house with an abundance of seating options – for those on a date, in a small discussion group or enjoying a cuppa joe to go! The friendly staff, and smiling patrons only add like upon like for this delightful coffee shop.

Cost: Average ($3.50 – $4.25 per steamed milk beverage)
