Best Lunch You Can Find on the Olympic Peninsula!

Monica's has the best lunch you can find anywhere. I almost hate to review it because it is tiny and if more people come it will be more crowded, but I guess that is the price of perfection! The quiches melt in your mouth. The breads are as good as those made in your grandma's kitchen. The... read more

Nestled in Old Town Silverdale, this little bakery is a force to be reckoned with. Recently while running errands,(and my mind set on trying another restaurant in Silverdale) I was saddened to learn that the restaurant was actually closed so I was forced to find another. The minute I stepped into Monica's, my sadness disappeared. The freshly baked bread and... More

Kind of a confusing menu. No list of bread available - turns out they only had white and wheat - but it's pretty crusty, which I like. Good tuna salad sandwich. Chocolate Croissant was a little disappointing. Not as flakey as I like. People were friendly. Service was quick.

I was in town for 4 days on business, and managed to patronize Monica's on four different occasions. For lunch, it's just terrific: they have a selection of excellent freshly made quiches that are delicious (I had Dungeness crab, excellent), salads, and great sandwiches on their freshly baked bread. For breakfast the choices are very limited, but I managed to... More

We love Monicas's. The food is excellent and you will be glad you ate there. The quiches are splendid, and our favorite. Soup, salads, and sandwiches are great, too. The desserts are the best. Try them all.

This is a nice place for a coffee, latte, and fresh baked pastries. Enjoy a bear claw or cinnamon twist and sip a hot drink with a friend. You'll enjoy it.

Lunch here was a delight! Sandwiches are made on house made bread. The shortbread cookies were the best. There were lots of drink choices including ice cream floats and wine. Salads were quite good as well.

I ordered pastry from Monica's ,for my guests ,a week ago and found the staff friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Their Bear Claws are first rate and delicious. We all adored her ginger cookies with orange cream filling and the hearty fruit bars with yummy frosting were super with espresso. All were ready on time and beautifully wrapped. Thank you Monica's... More

Monica's is a fun place to have a casual lunch. Everything is fresh. I would like to see Monica's incorporate gluten free products.

We went here on vacation with family because of reviews. Waterfront is not visible from anywhere in restaurant. Not able to even warm a sandwich. My husband walked out at that point. Wish we had followed. Sandwiches soup and baked goods were average at best.. and it was over 40 dollars for the 3 of us that did eat here.
