Can't say enough nice things about the staff at Catkin. They are warm and welcoming and happy to chat. Recommend the Dutch Baby (though maybe ask for extra jam--it is so good and goes quickly!). Beautiful restaurant with a great ambience.

While out exploring the Island, we ran across this little Cafe in Olga on Orcas Island. The food, the beer, the desert were all amazing.

Menu is small but it's so good! Everyone working there was very personable which made it even more enjoyable. We didn't want to leave so we shared cookies & a pot of tea. And the art booths in the same building are incredible!

Had brunch with friends here. The Huevos Rancheros were so good. My friend had the lamb sandwich and raved.

Great food with fresh local ingredients. Our waitress made suggestions on food pairings. The service was excellent and it was a wonderful location by the bay. We would definitely go back.

East of Moran State Park, AFAIK this is one of the only two restaurants of which I know on Orcas Island (other being Doe Bay, which serves dinner - Catkin does not). Good food and service, and enclosed in fine art emporium that is worth...More

The menu only had a few meals that I would consider. When ordering I found out that my first choice wasn’t available. My second choice was available and turned out to be rather good.

Catkin Cafe is located in the beautifully restored Olga Artworks building. It is attractive, tastefully decorated, and spotlessly clean.
