Best restaurant breakfast in years

The potatoes were as good as we ever had. Eggs were cooked perfectly. Home made bread and jam topped it off. First time we've had a breakfast as good as Linda's Seabreeze Cafe in Santa Cruz. Now we have two restaurants setting the standard to compare breakfasts.

We managed to hit the restaurant at just the right time. Waited 30 seconds for our table. By the time we left there were about 15 people waiting to be seated. I had eggs benedict and enjoyed it. They make there own English muffins. It was a big breakfast and enjoyed it. Would certainly go there again.

We brought hungry teens with us this time. They loved their breakfasts (banana/coconut/caramel pancakes and some sort of breakfast taco plate). I got my stand-by I just cannot skip, for it is as good or better than the ones we had in Paris, France -- Almond Croissants. Big, flaky, scrumptious. Not too sweet nor ripe with almond extract. Perfection. Please... More

Was here for lunch with a dear friend. I was amazed at how many gluten free options there were. Almost every sandwich or burger was available with gluten free bread. I had the clam chowder and a beef dip, my friend had the vegetarian sandwich with a tomato based soup with white beans. Everything was very good and the service... More

Meal and service were excellent. The special was turkey brioche and was absolutely delicious. The server patiently answered our questions and was attentive without being intrusive. Highly recommend Calico Cupboard.

The Calico Cupboard Café is an annual rite as part of the visit to the art fair and they have never failed to deliver high quality fresh-made food, bakery goods, and service. So many good items on the menu and in the bakery case, not even sure where to start with recommendations. The best suggestion is GO! You will not... More

We were in Anacortes for the Anacortes Art Festival, one of our favorite festivals around here, but were hungry. Because we were right by the resturaunt, (so even tho our last couple of experiences at the one in Mt. Vernon wasn't so good,) we decided to give this one a try. It was really crowded and busy, and we were... More

the positive: very friendly and efficient server. Price ok for what you get. There were 3 of us at a marginally looking table (chunks of wood chipped out of it and not looking any too clean). One had the Asian salad which should rate a 4 and looked very attractive and was tasty according to my friend. The other had... More

This is our second time having breakfast at Calico. Last year was wonderful and this year even better. Consistently great service and food. Huge portions, probably enough to share a plate. Huge pastries to go as well. Fresh squeezed OJ with the mimosas, home made sausage gravy and biscuits and delicious pancakes. My husband had the pancakes, I don't like... More

A most popular spot in Anacortes with super friendly service coupled with good food. The smoked salmon eggs Benedict on house made biscuit (especially recommended by our server) was perfectly done, the smoked salmon layer was huge and the side of home fries quite good. Excellent coffee, too!
