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.

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

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.

We used to go here often. Recently, we had an opportunity to return. What a change! Prices were up by 50% over our last visit a few years ago; service neglect was irritating at best and everything but attentive. My bowl of clam chowder was a cup of chowder and the remainder was sliced, skin-on red potatoes - lots and... More

The food here is really good with a lot of gluten free items. The French dip, soups and hamburgers are incredible. The service is quick and very friendly. There is a bakery counter here with a large assortment of breads, pastries and cookies-also with a large variety of gluten free. We had a great experience at the Calico Cupboard.

Went with 5 other adults. Food was incredible! Service: food took a looooong time. Coffee and water was plentiful but breakfast took a long time. Baked goods were delicious especially sea salt brownie!

Food and service are great but there is usually a wait. Desserts are to die for. Thickest chowder I have ever had!
