Went here during the film evening and lucky enough to find a table. Service was good and some interesting dishes, which were a little complicated with perhaps too many ingredients. But still a good experience.

This dish is a must have when visiting Port Townsend. 1 block off Water Street but worth the walk. My wife had a Coho Salmon Sandwich that was cooked to perfection. Very eclectic place with a very warn staff.

I love this place - come here every summer when we day trip to PT from Whidbey Island. But on the last visit, the waitress had attitude from the start. We took two tables (3 at one, 4 at the other) and each had their own check since we were two parties. We never asked to be seated together and... More

The owner of the inn we were staying at suggested a few dining spots for us to try out....we are so glad we chose the Fountain Café! I agree with many other TA reviewers, that this cozy little eating establishment is more of a "bistro than a café! We loved the atmosphere and quaintness of the FC! We dined early... More

Don't let the outside signage fool you, this is a quaint bistro situated in a heritage-style building off the main strip. The bistro(cafe) is small but cozy (maybe 8-9 tables). We dropped in for lunch. Everything on the menu looked great. We settled for the Turkey Reuben and the Salmon Burger. Both dishes were very tasty (only downside, turkey, regardless... More

We have eaten here a lot, and the food is always amazing. The food is not the only thing that makes a restaurant. The service is awesome too!

Elegant yet casual. Fresh foods cooked to perfection - or raw. This restaurant caters to all with excellence.

This wee restaurant was very busy the night we went for dinner. We hadn't made a reservation and were lucky to get in. I would recommend making a reservation! The building is heritage and looks as though it could have originally been built as a house in the early 1900's. It's a block off the main shopping street (Water Street)... More

Most of my meals here have been great. The small tables make for a cozy environment, though it can be really noisy. Go for the warmed spinach salad and gingerbread for a treat on a cool, windy night.

Read a review of the Fountain Cafe on Trip Advisor and we were treated to some excellent food. Very small, too small tables but great service. Would definitely return on another visit.
