Decided to eat somewhere local while exploring Whidbey Island. This café was wonderful and near our hotel so we decided to try it. Wonderful service and not too crowded (it was a little early for lunch). The burgers are amazing as is the fish and chips. You should definitely stop in on your way through....

I went today and the food is awesome. I love that they serve breakfast all day cuz I'm a lover of breakfast food. I had the "island breakfast" and my husband had the "fish and chips" both were delicious. The service was excellent and staff very friendly.

The Island Cafe is very popular. It's possible you have to wait for a table depending on when you go. That's life! I've had breakfast and dinner here. It's quality food for a good price. Friendly wait staff.

This place is a basic diner with a nicer, quiet, interior. Their dinner menu has fairly simple, American food dishes although everything is over $10 and a little more expensive than I expected. Our service was slow during our one visit, but the restaurant was not busy so the food came out fairly quickly, once we got our order recorded... More

Me and my husband always visits whenever we feel like eating our favorite Eggs Benedict for breakfast. The place is always pack on weekends, around 5-12 minutes wait, but it is worth it!
