Have really loved this place on previous visits, but not this time. A server had a filthy apron on (that was first clue). Then salads took forever to be delivered to the table. Is it usual for lettuce to not be washed at restaurants? Because I saw part of the preparation-- taking it directly out of the bag and chopping.... More

We had come here before and looked forward to visiting again. The service was good. One individual was particularly energetic. I was excited to find beer cheddar soup on the menu but was disappointed to get a bowl of Velveeta. Our server never stopped by to ask how our meal was or if we needed anything. My partner had a...

We stumbled upon this gem, as it is on a side street. In a charming old building (the norm for Port Townsend), the menu was appealing, and the food was great! We ordered half sandwiches that were huge.

Relaxed (and cosy) breakfest and lunch cafe.Family run cafe located in a quaint cottage with indoor and outdoor seating just off the main strip of town. Since the weather was in our favour, we choose the outdoor seating. Upon entering the Cafe, our senses were overwhelm with the tantalizing aromas of fresh breads, pastries and deep dish pies --- all... More

Family run bakery and restaurant. We enjoyed breakfast there 2 days in a row. Their pepper bacon is not to be missed. Breads are made on site and delish. Coffee from the pot is as good as espresso. Eat inside or out, but either way, you'll enjoy this sweet place. Service can be a bit slow.

Nice family run café, offers indoor or outdoor seating, and menu appears all fresh and homemade. Lots of pastries to choose from and they offer full breakfasts and lunches. Good food, reasonably priced, but very slow service; their children are the waitresses and not highly motivated. We always try to patronize the local merchants so breakfasted here twice - and...

The Courtyard Café? Ah, yes. If you're the type who likes chaos, goes to a restaurant so that you can write a review, and have a hyped up sense of who you are, you might not like the Courtyard Café. For me, the atmosphere was like going to grandma's house at Thanksgiving...a place where I can accompany friends and be... More

I have been by with friends 3 times now. Every time the meal is good the Breakfast quiche is magnificent, the coffee is good, the atmosphere is Port Townsend all the way. I love it, you will too.

We have eaten here several times and it never disappoints. Their breads are delicious for their sandwiches as are the sandwiches themselves. Their salads were marvelous and unfortunately so are all their desserts. They are so hard to resist I don't like going up to the cash register and have to confront my sugar cravings. The cinnamon rolls and chocolate... More
