We came here for breakfast, were told we could have it by the "maitre'd " and after we were seated were told we could only have lunch. This was because they had people at the Brewfest. After we were there about half an hour, two breakfasts were brought out and consumed by what appeared to be employees, or perhaps friends... More

If you are knowledgeable about what to order, this is a world-class restaurant. BELIEVE IT. In a world gone mad for bacon (bacon candy, bacon ice-cream, liqueurs, etc.), this is the place for the best bacon in the universe, bar none. This is the bacon against which all others are measured and found wanting. And you have never had buttered... More

We visited The Courtyard twice on this visit to PT. Once for an Americano and subsequently for breakfast. The Americano was disappointing as it had no really body. The breakfast scrambled eggs were over cooked and a bit watery. Bacon was excellent and the service enthusiastic. The large coffee percolator produces a good full bodied brew so I'll stick with...

Usual breakfast fare, but "to die for" pastry selection and really good coffee. Fun little "family" atmosphere.

We enjoyed our breakfast so much the first morning that we returned the next morning. Portions just right. Food was well prepared and served. On our last morning there we ordered a sandwich to go so we would have lunch with us on our way home. The prices are right. Nice family run establishment. My only thought is that it's... More

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.
