Wonderful and friendly

We ate breakfast here twice. Both times the service was friendly and inviting. The food was rich and delicious. There seemed to be an equal mix of locals and travelers. Very accommodating. Open for breakfast and lunch only. Be sure you try one of the many varieties of omelette.

My wife and I stopped in for supper on Valentine's Day with another couple while on Orcas Island. We had intended to eat at another restaurant, but they were booked up. This place obviously has very good TA reviews, so what could go wrong? The decor is plain -- no frills diner. The server was pleasant but scarce. Other than... More

I stopped here with a dear friend who lives on the island- we arrived around 9 which seems like a good breakfast time, however this place was busy! We did have to wait about 15 minutes to be seated, but what do you expect. The food was fantastic, however my coffee cup did run dry. It didn't seem that they... More

As a local, several trips here, each with differing results. The general feeling I get is due to the high turnover of staff, the level of training - if much - is such that not much prepares this place in how to handle large numbers. If you hit it at the right time, you walk in, are pleasantly greeted, seated... More

The review title says it all; if you go Eastsound you need to stop at Island Skillet and get a salmon omelet. It is delicious! We enjoyed it so much we went twice on this vacation and ate the same thing! Highly recommend to those traveling to this area. The staff recommended Island Hopping Brewery and climbing Mt. Constitution. Go... More

Pricey but pretty good. I had the two eggs and toast. They offer homefires, they were excellent. Omelet is the best value

As a tourist, eating in Eastbound can be expensive. This place, however, is affordable and tasty. We stopped by for breakfast, and were pleasantly surprised. The food was just as good, if not better, than other local eateries. The place is casual and clean, and the staff is friendly and accommodating. Good selection and generous portions. Delicious!

This is a wonderful, casual cafe in the heart of downtown Eastsound. The servers are kind and the food is delicious. The best breakfast on Orcas Island. My favorites are the eggs with skillet potatoes with lots of hot sauce. They offer a whole cupboard full of different hot sauces to choose from. Very family and budget friendly, too.

Good eatery for all :-) if it is a tourist season expect to wait or get there early. I am a carnivore so I was hoping for more meat options with my eggs but the vegy omelet was great too :-)
