On a rainy evening this is a cozy respite. Table seating and being waited on is unique to dinner. For lunch you take care of everything at the counter. One of my favorites is the Veggie or Vegan Grilled Sandwich. It’s healthy and delicious. Sweet...More

Owl Sprit is tucked in at the end of its lane, off Pt Townsend's main drag. It is worth looking for. Space is used economically, and the cafe's lean staff each managed several roles effectively. This is wholesome, healthy food; not fast food. Families and...More

Huge portions, unique menu in a trendy hip setting. The dining area is a bit small but has a very warm cozy welcoming feeling. Ambiance is quit nice with cool decor on the surrounding walls. You order at the counter and seat yourself. The menu...More

We found this to be one of only a handful of places open for dinner on a Tuesday! It’s hidden at the end of block on a dead end street, but worth the search. Menu has a wide variety of items, something for everyone. Staff...More

Husband and I had dinner here recently. It is a small, cozy hip restaurant with a wide range of food and juice-bar offerings. If there are vegans and vegetarians in your group, this place seems to have a lot of options. We split a medium...More

QUITE a wait to get your food even at 2:30, post lunch rush. That was perplexing as it wasn't terribly crowded and didn't seem understaffed. Made me wonder what it would be like at peak time. Nice menu.

This small cafe has raised the basic to new heights for Port Townsend casual dining. The focus is on sandwiches, burritos, tacos, salads, soups, and smoothies. Owl Sprit does take "local" seriously, with their truly great burgers sourced from locally grown range-fed beef raised just 8 miles away! The shredded onion "haystack" is to die for!
