This is the place that won the best fish and chips on San Juan Island. Everything was fresh, crispy and tasty.

Excellent omelets with pancakes. Fun for kids with the doughnuts. Great view and setting on the docks. We ate there all three mornings on our recent visit. The three meat and three cheese omelet was best egg dish I've ever had. Only complaint - they don't have soy for lattes. But, you can go down the dock and get one... More

Ok try the menu is limited so you will have no problem finding the parmesan crusted chicken sandwich. Find it, buy it. Incredible. So delicious. We had a wonderful lunch here. The $8.95 kids meal was a bit over priced for my taste for cafe. I am sure the cheese on that grilled cheese was some magical cheese for that... More

Breakfast is amazing and so is lunch. I love the cattlepoint burger, 2\2\2 breakfast. Order at the center, grab a table by a window then your food comes and ya eat...yummy! Donuts are really special here too. Service is great

This was basically the only place open to get breakfast or lunch when we visited Roche Harbor. The rest of the place was still not "in season" yet during April 2015. As for the food here, it was OK but nothing special and we eat pretty basic. I certainly have nothing negative to say, but the food is simply OK.... More

We ate here twice during the week. My daughter and I split a breakfast plate (two eggs, two slices of bacon and hashbrowns, and each had a donut. The breakfast was great--eggs were perfect, generous portions, the hashbrowns were crispy and not greasy (yay!), the coffee was good, and the donuts were good too. And when the chef heard we...

My wife and I came in for breakfast while staying at the resort. We were able to seat ourselves, with a nice harbor view. You look at the menu, and then order at the counter. By the time we had decided on our drinks and made our way back to the table, our food was delivered within about a minute.... More

Had a great lunch at this Cafe. Very simple cafe but that the worst thing you could say. The service was second to none, Super Tasty Burgers and a relaxed enjoyable atmosphere. Make sure you try it!

Lime Kiln Cafe won't necessarily get 5 stars from Fodor's but it is THE place to eat (breakfast and lunch only) at Roche Harbor. The rail specials are always outstanding. You can't go wrong.
