Calico Cupboard Old Town Cafe & Bakery, Mt. Vernon, Washington We were driving north on I-5 on our way to Anacortes to catch a ferry to Victoria, Canada. We stopped in Mt. Vernon, WA and asked directions to the best restaurant in town. We were given directions to the Calico Cupboard Old Town Cafe & Bakery. WOW! We could not... More

I have only gotten pastries to go from here before which were good so we decided to stop for breakfast. It is a cute / quaint location and feels homey. I ordered the banana/coconut pancakes which were Amazing! Plenty of coconut and bananas with a ton of whip cream and a side of syrup and butter. My husband ordered the... More

I only stopped for a cup of tea, so I cannot comment on the food, but promise myself to return when I have more time to browse! Needing a quick place to use free internet, we popped into this café. Being a Sunday mid-afternoon, I expected an empty shop, but the large cafe overflowed with patrons. They sat my husband... More

This used to be the classiest place to have breakfast in Skagit County – except maybe for its sister restaurant in LaConner – maybe I just ordered the wrong thing but the biscuits and gravy a cold lumpy and just not very good – one thing is for certain though you always get a good cuppa coffee here – it's...

We recently met up with friends here for brunch. They drove up from Everett and said that it's one of their favorite places to eat. We regularly bring friends here from out-of-town. The food is always excellent with a very homemade type feel and taste. Their bakery selections are to die for and we usually take a giant cinnamon roll... More

I have frequented the Calico Cupboards in both Mount Vernon and LaConner for at least 20 years. Their food is very consistent, all homemade, and delicious! I will sometimes stop in to grab some 'treats' to go for my family from the bakery...they have THE most amazing baked goods, ranging from breads (which tend to sell out early in the... More

This is a great place for a quick meal in pleasant surroundings. They're a bit too veggie, low gluten, eat things that are good for you for my taste, but they do offer a few dishes that contain a bit of meat. They have a bakery with a nice variety of good, if overpriced, desert items- the cinnamon rolls are... More

We often travel I-5 BC to Vancouver, WA and are sure to stop here for breakfast. The food is delicious and we always take a few bakery items as we're leaving. I absolutely love the adjoining shop where you'll find unique items for your home. There is a smoke stack nearby that is visible from the highway. It's painted with... More

The food and baked goods are consistently good. They are definitely on the pricey side but well worth. Their banana coconut pancakes with homemade buttermilk syrup are delicious. If you like biscuits they have good ones.
