we were staying at the Orca Inn, mediocre at best, and needed early coffee before our kayak trip. Good service. Seems like a lot of locals coming in and driving through.

OK, this isn't a gourmet restaurant. Shakes and dogs, really. But! If you like a real milkshake, made from milk and ice cream in a blender...this is heaven. I arrived here after asking the most milk-fed bagger at King's where the island's best shake was....More

Great little family operated and independent coffee drive-thru. They also have an outside walk - up ordering counter with some outdoor tables & chairs right next to the Ferry overload parking lot. Small town convenience like it should be.

If you want fast food that's also good, Roy's is excellent. They have burgers and hot dogs, made just the way you ask. They also have a LOT of flavors for milk shakes. If you'll be here awhile, you can get a ticket to click...More

The best hot dogs and milk shakes on the planet! Close to the ferry terminal parking area. Perfect place to grab a bite when waiting for a morning or afternoon ferry. Sorry for those catching the evening ferry, they close at 3pm.
