After a couple of attempts to have dinner here (closed around Labor Day), we stopped in for lunch. The sandwiches were offered as a whole or half. It was later in the afternoon, so we ordered just a half sandwich each. The basic half-sandwich with turkey, tomato and cheese, arrived with a pickle spear, no chips and was $7.00. Nothing... More

My husband & I enjoyed a wonderful late afternoon lunch at the Owl Sprit. It was suggested to us by the ladies at Jane Dough, a local gourmet shortbread bakery. I had the slider made with grass-fed beef and local sausage topped with bacon and sundried pesto. Oh my stars! Delicious. My husband had the Club on sourdough; the bread... More

It's a sweet, Bohemian cafe. You order at the counter, pay, find a seat at a table and food is delivered to you. A half sandwich is $7, but the food is good. They have coffees, sandwiches, soups, salads and delicious looking deserts.

Stopped here for a coffee and loved the atmosphere, the food looked good but it was a bit early in the day. The coffee was good and the staff very friendly.

We are visiting Port Townsend for a few days while our roof is being replaced. The hosts at Chevy Chase Beach Cabins recommended the Owl Sprit and I'm so glad they did. Casual, friendly service and yummy pasta dishes. Very large portions so beware or be ready to take some home for lunch the next day. Will absolutely return.

How refreshing to find a cafe with a cool vibe, eclectic funky decor, including plants hanging from the walls and original art on the brick walls. Very inviting! Warm, friendly service only added to the lovely experience of dining here. We went for lunch on our anniversary and found a varied menu which suited our needs. We weren't that hungry... More

My sister and I had the pleasure of dinning here on our last night in Port Townsen. Noah our waiter was a delight. He was friendly, funny, and knowelable about the menu. The menu had a very good selection of local organic vegan and not vegan food meals. A lot of gluten free options as well. We ordered the bread... More

Many of the restaurants in Port Townsend have the "new age-hippy" feel, and this is one of those places. You can usually count on some allergy/gluten-free choices, all-natural, locally grown foods, and the smells of an herb garden. In that respect, this one did not disappoint. I was quite hungry, and was pleased to find a salad of my liking,... More

I last reviewed this place 5 years ago and have come back from time to time. After yesterday's visit, I thought it deserved another review. We wandered in for a lateish lunch and ordered the apple walnut salad and the nachos to share. The food and the service did not disappoint. Everything was fresh and servings were generous enough that... More

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!
