Great food--loved the cod and chips. They also have the best burgers anywhere. Nice to be near the boats and the harbor as well.

We really liked eating breakfast here while staying at Roche Harbor resort. It's open for breakfast and lunch. You order from menu when you walk in door with their cashier. Nice view of the harbor. I had the scramble breakfast with bacon and cheese. It comes with hash browns and choice of bread. I recommend their biscuit with strawberry jam.... More

They have only two vegetarian choices: cafe mixed green starter salad and hazelnut crusted veggie burger. How vegetarian unfriendly! Moreover, their menus are misleading for vegetarians. That led us to requesting two dishes wrongly. Fortunately, their service was excellent! They replaced the wrong dishes with many apologies. The salad was below average. The veggie burger was good. The view from... More

We drove here from our stay in Friday Harbor...because they served donuts! We weren't disappointed! My husband & I shared the San Juan scramble (minus mushrooms)-delightful! The biscuit & jam amazing! Still talking about how yummy it was! They served Star Bucks. Our kids enjoyed their pancakes! Our friends really liked their omelettes-especially the biscuits! We tried going again another... More

We enjoyed the fish and chips and chowder for lunch. We got coffee to go along with a delicious donut for the way home. Pretty spot.

We have been to the Lime Kiln Café for both breakfast and lunch. We first went with the grandchildren and their parents. All of us enjoyed the food and the relaxed atmosphere for breakfast. The eggs benedict, omelets and children's selections were great! The freshly created donuts were spectacular. We (just two of us) went back for lunch and enjoyed... More

Located across the street for the Hotel de Haro and right on the main pier at Roche Harbor the Lime Kiln Café is a favorite for both the boating crowd and landlubbers alike. The sandwiches are generally very good and the burgers are a cut above average. Throw in some tasty fries and you've just carbed up enough to finish... More

Fast, friendly service; great food, healthy portion size. It's a great little stop on the water for a quick bite!

Great place to eat. We had the lamb burger, the fish and chips, the French dip and a burger. All was delicious, and service was excellent.

Stopped in for lunch. You order at the counter and they bring it to your table. Hot sandwiches were very good. Prime rib was tender. Fried chicken sandwich was well seasoned. Fries were average. They serve Starbucks coffee! Beautiful view of the harbor, staff were friendly and food came out within a reasonable amount of time. A bit pricey but... More
