Breakfast

We had breakfast here and it was delicious although the restaurant itself was a little noisy where we were sitting. I think guests conversing in the lobby made it extra loud from where we were sitting but the food was excellent. The bacon and brioche toast were yummy!

Their dinners are better than their breakfasts. You'll spend a lot on dinner, but it's worth it. Consequently, the New Leaf is a very popular place, both with tourists and locals. If you want to eat at a reasonable time (like 7:00 pm), I would recommend booking a reservation months ahead of your visit to the island.

Highly recommended, our meal was perfect. The salmon was moist, buttery, flakey, perfect. The duck and Gruyere Mac cheese was so sinfully delicious. Even the Caesar salad was better than most. Service excellent. Great wine list. Great night out.

Ate at New Leaf on our recent visit to Orcas with my brother and his wife. For the most part it was terrific, great service, a really tasty wine by the glass (Buty), and three out of four of our dinners were excellent--the chicken was pretty much blown away). The desserts are seriously lacking... blueberry crisp was too sour and... More

Lovely cafe with splendid view of Eastsound Bay. We were pleasantly surprised to be seated the first night when we showed up without reservations (although we did call ahead) and they kept us a window seat as promised when we did make a reservation. Very nice, friendly staff and Chef came out to say hello personally. Order the clams and... More

We had a party of eight and the staff made us feel like royalty. Excellent drinks, followed promptly with amazing meals. All eight of us had great entrees. Very comfortable restaurant with great views of the bay.

Great place to start the day with breakfast just off the ferry from Friday Harbor. We needed to stop and plan our hiking routes, and this was the perfect place. Food and coffee are great; staff very friendly. Busy, so you may have to wait, but worth it.
