Cafe Luna: A Vashon Island Gem with a Heartwarming Personal Attachment

Nestled uptown of our picturesque Vashon Island, Cafe Luna stands as a testament to the island’s rich history. The spot where Cafe Luna resides is especially sentimental to me as the legacy of my Grandmother Mary Bagley, who once owned the building, houses this charming establishment. Formerly the Sandpiper, My Grandmother’s trinket and clothing store, the building now resonates with the lively aroma of coffee, the laughter of patrons, and the warmth of shared memories at Cafe Luna.

In the heart of Vashon Island, the Sandpiper was more than just a store; it was a community hub where locals and visitors gathered to explore Vashon’s unique trinkets and fashionable finds. Her passion for her business eventually led her to acquire the entire building, a decision that set the stage for the future of this cherished space.

Today, the building that once housed the Sandpiper has transformed into Cafe Luna, offering the finest organic coffee on Vashon Island. The ambiance is cozy, and the menu boasts an array of house-made organic baked goods, soul-warming soups, grilled panini sandwiches, and an extensive tea selection. Cafe Luna has something to satisfy every palate, whether you’re in the mood for a refreshing Italian soda, a delightful smoothie, or a comforting cup of hot apple cider.

In the words of a delighted patron, Kay, “Best hazelnut no foam soy latte ever!!! All drinks are fabulous…i.e. ‘London Fog,’ Italian sodas, smoothies, hot apple cider…yum!!!!” Kay’s glowing testimonial captures the essence of Cafe Luna’s commitment to excellence in service and quality beverages.

At Cafe Luna, the dedication to quality extends beyond beverages to include an array of delectable treats. From locally sourced organic coffee to mouthwatering paninis, each item on the menu is crafted with care and attention to detail. The cafe also boasts a selection of beer and wine, making it a perfect spot to unwind with friends or enjoy a quiet evening.

Cafe Luna isn’t just a coffee shop; it’s a community gathering space. The cafe hosts weekend music events, adding a touch of vibrancy to the atmosphere. Whether you’re catching up with friends or simply enjoying a moment of solitude, the inviting ambiance of Cafe Luna welcomes all.

    I would like to purchase 2 $100 gift cards from the Luna cafe on Vashon, for gifts for my parents who live on Vashon and love your cafe. I would really like to have them mailed to me in Indianapolis IN before Memorial day, If at all possible. I am more than happy to pay a little extra for your time and postage. IO have done this before and it worked out spectacularly, and they loved it and are at your cafe a lot.
