Love this small town, have stopped in here when in the area for coffee. Comfortable chairs outside :). Very good vibes here and nice staff.

We've been visiting Birch Bay and this cafe for many years. I can't say enough about the friendly staff! My daughter loves their Italian sodas and I love everything! Pay them a visit, you won't be disappointed.

Because we live nearby, 5 minute drive, we head to BB 3-5 times a week for a walk and something afterwards. We make the rounds between 5 different restaurants, the Bay being one of them. Great coffee, Seattle's Best, and split a sandwich now and then. Always fresh, made there while you wait, which is not long.

Ate brunch at the Bay Cafe with my extended family. Food was absolutely delicious. Most of us had the breakfast burrito and everyone loved it. Can't beat the south facing patio with the sun and blue sky as far as you can see :)

The first meal when we pulled into town, and a great start to a vacation! Really good lunch sandwiches made from scratch, and generous sizes. Across the street from the bay, with a good view!

We were just driving through town and looking for a place to eat. This casual restaurant was right on the bay with a wonderful view so we had to stop in. Really friendly staff. We elected to get their lobster tail combo specials - chicken and lobster and salmon and lobster combo. The lobster tail was done perfectly. We opted... More

Stopped in for lunch around 1pm on a weekday in December - which may explain why we were the only customers. The place is small and I imagine is busier in the summer. A bit disappointed with the grime on the top of the napkin dispenser and the black around the door handles of the back storage room. Our family... More

I little disappointed at this selection for lunch. The place was a bit run down, less than acceptable bathroom and generally not so clean. The lunch fare for ok but nothing great. My club sandwich was underwhelming. The wife wasn't impressed either. Lots of local seniors frequented the place so it seemed value was primary. Decent but we won't be... More
