My friend and her son and I were walking around looking for a light lunch before we got the 3pm ferry. They had 3 types of homemade soup. We tried the turkey, it was SO good. served with a little cornbread loaf, it was warm and yummy. I also had a coffee, it was very good. My friends son had... More

I met someone here an hour before my manicure appointment. Very quiet place with tables for both inside and outside sitting. Good coffee and understand from the person I was with that the food is also delicious. Seems to serve sandwiches and treats but I only had a morning coffee. Reasonable prices.

This was a great little stop before we lined up for the Ferry to Anacortes. Staff was friendly, I thought the prices were reasonable as well. I would definitely recommend stopping here for a coffee or food.

Grabbing a quick coffee or relaxing over a delightful snack with an aromatic latte, I've come to view the Red Brick Café as my go-to place when visiting Sidney. Dave and Maureen, the proprietors, are friendly and service-oriented as are their delightful component of staff. I enjoy the typical Sidney ambience whether I sit inside on a rainy day, or... More

We ordered soup and sandwiches during our visit and enjoyed them at one of their outdoor tables. The staff was friendly and efficient and we received our order very quickly. We didn't know where to go for lunch when we arrived in Sidney, so we took a chance on the Red Brick Cafe. We were pleased with our experience and... More

Oh boy, when you order seafood chowder and it arrives in a large portion with loads of carrots and potatoes, you know you are in trouble. Where was all the fish? Well it was somewhere except in the chowder where one or two small chunks of whitefish were skulking. So much for the chowder. The sandwiches were generously proportioned but... More

Food was good, ordered sandwiches and soup but staff was clearly annoyed about having to wait for us to order ( asking three children what they want and explaining the menu to them). This took no more than 2-3 mins. There was no one else in the line behind us. Very hostile and unfriendly to say the least. We won't... More

Great soup and chowder. A bit disappointed that processed cheese slices were used on the sandwiches. Good service. Slightly aggressive tipping option on the card reader. Not great impression.

Had a quick espresso with a friend the other morning. First time into this location and they do an ok job. The young lady working the till was pleasant but not an A+ in customer service. The bathrooms and dining area were clean and pleasant. Fresh water was available and our hot drinks and muffins were good. With just some... More
