We have been coming to The Fountain Cafe for years and it continues to be our favorite place. Really great fresh food and not too pricey. We can walk there from A Bungalow, so don't have to deal with parking. Go early though, as there are only a few tables!

Very small and hard to find café that offers unique Italian food in an intimate setting. Known well by all of the locals. Worth searching for it.

It is important to say that as a first time visitor to this town known for its beauty, color, and fun, it was a harsh slap to walk into a restaurant and: 1) not be acknowledged 2) when making our way to the only available (empty, unset, and unmarked) table, a server whizzed past us curtly and indirectly noting that...

We stopped in for a late lunch when we were in Port Townsend. We had sandwiches and soup, every thing was absolutely delicious. Pretty little cafe, one block behind (away from the water) the main street.

When in PT we always eat at the Fountain. It is wonderful. Very small and limited seating, but some of the best food in the Northwest. Service is quick and friendly. Best to go for off hours as it is crowded and the wait can be long. As I recall, no reservations also. Located 1/2 block uphill from the fountain,... More

We often eat at this restaurant when we visit Port Townsend. It's a small but appealing restaurant with a great chef. The waitress was very friendly, and our dinners (we both had different pasta dishes) were delicious. We would suggest getting there early as they don't take reservations.

We frequent The Fountain and love it! Great ambience, great service and wonderful food! My favorite dish is the Greek Pasta dish. I prefer to add chicken. I did get it with the prosciutto once, but it was too salty that way. Their salads are beautiful! My husband loves the lamb sliders, and the brea with garlic on the appetizer... More

This place is small and cozy and had a great wine selection, excellent and unique menu offerings and good wine selection. The service was great! I am a vegetarian and appreciated that they had a few unique items on the menu for me to choose from!

It was one of the best places in Townsend! It had great character. The server was attentive, but not pushy. The food was hot and very filling. We had to take a To-Go box!
