One of our favorite eateries in Friday Harbor! As a local, we eat there often. Enjoy the small-town feel with a friendly staff and an owner that stops to chat.

I can't say if the food is good at this restaurant because we left before even sitting down. We were greeted with distain and rudeness from the waitress as soon as we walked in, so we left. I can only assume the food is good...More

We’ve been to this cafe quite often over the years, but this last visit was quite unpleasant. First, to be sure, the food was excellent. No issues there. Service, not so much. Natasha was aggressively short and at one point wandered off without explanation, just...More

We had an early lunch and, while the sandwiches looked great, we decided to go the omelet route. Mine was a veggie one with lots of cheese and vegetables, very tasty. It came with hash browns and 2 pieces of toast.

The breakfast burrito was delicious, pancakes tasted like they were from a mix, but the French toast was good. My son’s classic breakfast didn’t seem like it had 2 scrambled eggs, was a pretty small portion, but the hash browns were good.

Excellent service, this cafe runs like a well oiled machine thanks to the efficient staff. Coffee was good, pancakes were made from a mix but with a light hand, so texture was good. Pleasant atmosphere if a little loud from the happy eaters.

Excellent food, lots of choice. Were happy to serve us items off the lunch menu at bfast. Kari was our excellent waitress she couldn’t be more professional and was very jolly! You will probably have to wait 10 to 15 mins but worth the wait....More

I would call them to make sure, but I don't think so. It's a breakfast place. Who makes reservations for breakfast? Go there anyway, the food is great.
