The best place for breakfast on the island. There is not one bad thing on their menu. The portions are generous, and the prices are reasonable. There's not a lot of seating though, so plan on waiting 20-60 minutes for a table, depending on the time and the size of your group.

The Swiss scrambled eggs I had were fantastic. The ingredients all tasted so fresh. My husband had a fantastic omlette. The staff was friendly and the chef brings out your food. My eggs were served on a skillet so hot to the last bite! Great place for families too!

Breakfast came fast and friendly, even though it was fairly busy. Always had a full cup of coffee. My egg scramble with spinach, mushrooms, Swiss cheese, etc was good, but the hashbrowns could have been a bit crispier - almost like there wasn't enough oil/butter in the pan ( I mean come on, they are hashbrowns). Overall though good ingredients... More

We tried this local spot for my birthday breakfast; had great Yelp ratings. Our experience did NOT match. Waited 13 minutes before ANYONE even acknowledged we were waiting for a table. Then the gal made us give her our name (and there were 3 empty tables with on one waiting). Then another woman promptly seated us. Menu looked promising, but... More

I usually go with a group, and the wait staff are nice about letting us pay individually. The soups are usually good, but often spicy. The sandwiches are good. Salads are above average. Pancakes, waffles and french toast leave something to be desired, in my opinion. The waffle taste is not as good as hotel breakfasts.

My husband and I dined here for breakfast 3 out of our 4 mornings while on Orcas. I usually had scrambled eggs, wheat toast, and cottage cheese. Boring, I know, but the french toast I had on the 3rd morning was very good. The eggs, toast, and cottage cheese were just as they were supposed to be, tasty and a... More

Waited awhile to get in, but worth the line. Good basic breakfasts, excellent hashbrowns, and not an eye batted at my "I don't eat eggs" oddlot menu choices.
