Homey ambience and luscious bakery

Went for lunch a bit before 1:00 so caught the tail end of the lunch rush on a weekday. Friendly service. Food was a little slow to be served but worth the wait. Can't beat sandwiches made on homemade bread! Was too full for dessert but got some to go. If you're interested in shopping at Re-feather... read more

A great Breakfast/Lunch destination. Easy to see from the I5 but hard to get to. You'll feel as if you're in a friend's kitchen. Food is delicious, service is prompt and courteous and it's very inexpensive. Great baked goods and pies.

This is the place to go for home-made, fresh food! Their breakfast are excellent, as well as their salads for lunch and desserts. It can be a bit noisy as the seating is close, but the warm atmosphere makes it worth the visit.

Every time we go that direction we make a point of going to Calico Cupboard. This weekend was no exception. We had Grandma's hot cakes, and they were absolutely delicious, and so filling!

We stopped here to have a rest, stretch our legs and a coffee. The food and drink were great- they definitely know what they are doing in the kitchen.

Calico Cupboard is a small local chain. I like the location of this restaurant and the adjacent antique stores, but as far as the food and service goes I prefer the one in LaConnor. Usually the location in Mt Vernon is very busy and the service can sometimes be slow because of that. I have eaten there several times, and... More

Great restaurant located in downtown Anacortes, locals and tourist, nice, clean, comfortable, good coffee; the cinnamon rolls were great, with lots of icing on them. But the omelets are fantastic. I had the bacon and cheese omelet, it was huge, with the strips of bacon and the cheese inside of it, with potatoes as a side, with two slices of... More

I was a little leery of having a brunch for eleven in such a busy facility. Fortunately we had reservations for before a wedding party of 40 was expected, so the food came in a timely manner. Normally they do not take reservations unless it is for a large number and they can be accommodated upstairs (no elevator) The meal... More

Decent food, nothing exceptional, Salmon sandwich on focaccia is pretty good. Busy during rush hour so service can be spotty.

Three of us went to lunch at Calico Cupboard and all of us enjoyed our food. I always have the 1/2 sandwich and clam chowder and it was excellent. Other friend had the quiche and enjoyed and the other woman had a salad. Had the chocolate pecan pie for dessert. If it's nice, sit outside.
