Small local chain in tourist locations

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... read more

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.

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.

We stopped here at the midpoint of a long day of cycling and couldn't have found a better place. The service was great, the atmosphere was really comfortable, and the food was excellent. We had turkey montecristos which were the daily special and they were delicious. But the apple cinnamon bun for dessert really made the visit! I will go... More

This place was a last minute find on our way up the interstate & we decided to pull off & find a place to eat. So glad we did & that this place was open on Memorial Day. Incredible service, incredible food, great little building with lots of character. It may be a little out of the Seattle area but... More

My husband and I used to love going to Calico Cupboard. It was always great food. But the last couple of times we have gone there we really noticed a big change in the quality of the food. And it's not for the better. The clam chowder used to be very good. Now it's like paste. The bread on my... More

Having had a great experience at calico cupboard in La Conner, went to their branch in Mount Vernon. Were not disappointed. Menu etc pretty much the same - great hash's, pancakes, eggs. Good coffee with free refill. Short wait to get a table - its popular and it was the weekend too. But well worth it.
