We were happy to find this place!

We were visiting off season so finding an open restaurant on a Monday was a bit of a challenge. As my wife said the food was good but not memorable. Maybe a bit unfair because the Duck mac 'n cheese seemed quite unique and quite tasty. I had the beef sliders that were nicely cooked but the... read more

I dined at the New Leaf Cafe on my arrival at the Outlook Inn, which was the only night it was open during my stay. It was an excellent decision, as the cuisine was superb. I enjoyed an appetizer of clams followed by a Caesar Salad with fresh local salmon. The salmon was among the best I have ever tasted.... More

This is a very good restaurant with great service. The menu had a lot to offer, therefore hard to choose. We were very pleased with the food and the service. You can eat out on the porch as well as inside. I would recommend to friends.

Being gluten free, when I see a menu with this many choices that accommodate my diet, I am thrilled. It was hard to make up my mind. I chose the smoked salmon eggs Benedict rather than the waffles. Very tasty. There is really no reason to review this place, as it stands out in its superb downtown location and is... More

The New Leaf Cafe was one of the few restaurants on Orcas open for dinner during our one-night stay on Monday, May 4th. We would have dined at our Inn's restaurant had it been open instead. Lucky us. The halibut was fresh, caught in local waters and cooked to perfection. It was served with pine nuts on a bed of... More

Amazing fresh seafood on the menu. You can dine in or out - but definitely add to your list. Megan was our server and she was very helpful in pointing out the local ingredients as well as making excellent drink recommendations. If they are serving scallops - don't even hesitate - just order them!

The view while eating a great meal is a real bonus. Will make a point of eating here again, next time on the Rock.

Lori was our server, and very personable. We had lamb, spring salads, grilled halibet, and creme broule for desert. All superbly prepared, and very tasty. As guests at the Outlook Inn, we received the utmost courtesy, and highly recommend both the Inn & restaurant.
