Perfect lunch spot

We had lunch at Cafe Nola mid week. We found the servers very friendly and the food very tasty and well presented. The cafe is situated on the left hand side of the road if you are coming from the ferry. It is quite close to what I can only describe as the town square.

Looking for some excellent food and outdoor seating, this restaurant fit the need. The staff was courteous, and we got seated right away without reservations on Father's Day. It was most enjoyable. Will go back.

A disappointing Mother's Day outing. We all found our dishes bland, which is forgivable except our waiter was inattentive, and frankly rude.

An easy restaurant to reach when you get off the Seattle ferry. I was a walk-on, and it is only the distance of about four blocks from the time you step foot on land. I've eaten here many times, and it is always a destination for me for lunch. It's cozy, servers are friendly, food comes quickly. They have an... More

Friendly & helpful staff. Lovely location near the end of downtown, with inside & outside seating. Really nice decor & ambience. The presentation of the food is fantastic, I was checking out what other people were ordering as I couldn't make up my mind… really hard to choose!! I opted for the fish & chips, I wasn't disappointed. We thought... More

We came hear after taking the ferry from Seattle. The waiters are friendly but not really attentive compared to other U.S. restaurants. The food is ok but I have to say both of our dish was a bit stuffy and unspectacular. For that price you expect a bit more
