Great meeting place

This is a great place to meet and have lunch or coffee.You order at the counter and seat yourself. The baked goods are way too good for my weight. Lunches are tasty and fresh. The coffee up to Seattle standards, that is the excellent stuff that locals have come to expect.

Three times and we give up. Mediocre sandwiches, last time with day-old bread. You make it daily! Use fresh bread fercryinoutloud. Final fail: breakfast bacon and chedder scone: dry, doughy, minimal bacon. We tossed the second one. We're through with this place.

A favorite place for lunch in downtown Port Townsend. Fresh baked goods, a great menu, good coffee. Love the outdoor seating. Get with the flow and bus your own tables. My favorite is their take on a Monte Cristo sandwich - won't find this anywhere else in Jefferson County. Nice people run the place, too.

Had some very nice sandwiches outside before going on a whale watching tour. Friendly service and great vibe with assorted musicians (not all in the first flush of youth) taking it in turn to sing the blues on a sunny day.

Great baked goods, breakfast fare and lunch. Their sandwiches are very good (try the "Twisted Christo")! The staff are pleasant and attentive. Outdoor seating available. Coffee with free refills. All in all, our choice for a "hangout" when in PT. Prices a little high but probably average for Port Townsend.

We were there for lunch. Lots of sandwich options plus a great clam chowder. I had a cheese-something soup with my sandwich that did not compare well with the chowder. You stand in line to order. There is seating outside if you wish and the weather permits. The place is informal and fun. There is even a guitar hanging on... More

Near downtown, good food though. You have to order at the counter first then find a table. Line stretched out the door and leaving customers would bump into incoming customers. Café inside old house, so there isn't a lot of room getting around without bumping into things. Setting is very noisy.

Went here for a Chef Salad, Tuna Sandwich, Spicy Chai and a cinnamon roll. It was all so tasty, filling, great service and relaxing. This is one of our favorite restaurants for locals and tourists. The bread is made on premises, White, wheat and sour dough. Yummm. Service is great, you don't have to wait long. Their desserts are also... More

Hubby had the Pulled Pork sandwich and I had the Three Napkin Reuben. Both were delicious and I had to pack part of mine "to go". We stopped on the way out the door to grab a couple of Cinnamon rolls. yummy. They also have "brown bag" lunches to take out if you have somewhere to go. Very nice place... More
