... wound up here because everyplace else seems to close at 9pm (on a Sunday in July)... but I'm quite sure it was twice as good as all the alternatives... Scallops incredible. Flourless chocolate cake perfection.

We ate dinner here on our last night on Orcas Island. The New Leaf serves very good food with several seafood choices as well as kid friendly hamburgers. The views looking out at the waters of East Sound are great but almost better is the chance for lots of people watching as it is on the main street of East... More

We came here for breakfast and it was delicious! Good coffee! We had the granola and yogurt and the corn flour pancakes. Everything was so good. Next time I will be trying it for dinner too! Very cute place!

Once the loud diners departed, it was a great place to celebrate an anniversary. We did small plates, French Onion soup, Halibut Cakes, Arugula Salad and Mushroom Omelette- all divine. Server Megan is attentive.

We ate dinner here twice while we were on Orcas Island and it was great both times! Nice enjoyable evenings! We sat in the lounge because we didn't have a reservation, and the atmosphere was fine. There was one small table in the corner we were glad not to sit at. We called it the "time out" table 😀

Right on the main (but quaint/quiet) street of Eastsound (the town), and directly across from the water inlet of East Sound, nice airy atmosphere with lots of windows if you're inside, and street-side patio level if you're outside. Good food. Nice Service. Not inexpensive, but in range for high quality gourmet dinner

We ate at the New Leaf Cafe one morning for breakfast. The service was great and the food was even better. My husband and I both had the salmon, avocado eggs benedict - delicious. Our kids had the waffles with fruit and they both loved them. You have a lovely view of the Bay while enjoying a great breakfast. Does... More

New Leaf has a very nice location in town but we didn't have a window view. The corn flour flapjacks and unusual syrup were fabulous! All our friends enjoyed the food but it really is a bit pricey.

So the food was delicious, but we had to wait forever to get it. We weren't in a hurry so at first we were fine with a little waiting. But after the two families who came in after us got their food (there was only the two of us) and we were still waiting, we got a little frustrated. The... More

We stopped in for a spontaneous dinner after getting massaged at massage by the sea. We didn't have reservations but were seated in the bar without a wait. The service was very good. We ordered the Caesar to share, duck Mac, and moules frites. Everything came out quickly and it was all super tasty. Next time I will reserve ahead... More
