It was a great little place for lunch: friendly staff, good food and enjoyable atmosphere. They even have a bike rack in front for those who are biking around the island. That was a nice bonus.

The food at this place is amazing and ambiance too...my wife ordered chicken quesadilla and i ordered chicken sandwich wt avocado , they took about 15 min to serve & I can say they have the best bread. It was soft and crispy baked to the right consistency . I would recommend and would definitely go there if I visit... More

We stopped in on July 3, 2014, and sat outside. I enjoyed a Chicken Salad sandwich, and my wife had a BLT with Romaine lettuce. Great food, great service. And our dog got a bowl of water.

We were on Washington Island for the day and stopped in at Bread and Water for lunch. We were glad we did. The food was excellent with the atmosphere of your mother's kitchen. The soup and sandwich were home made with love. The service was excellent and so pleasant. We chatted with the owner and her daughter. They could not... More

We took our bicycles over on the ferry to Washington Island and stopped here to have lunch. The waiter was also the cook (his first day on the job). He was very friendly and informative. We had sandwiches and iced tea and they were sure to keep refilling our drinks as we were a bit parched from having already cycled... More

Just stopped in to discover a new place as this was my third or fourth trip to Washington Island. We had some soup and tea and it was good. Service was good as well

We hoped for a great lunch out on Washington island and were attracted by the name. It turned out to be the worst meal of our entire vacation. The chicken salad sandwich was just warm chicken and tons of mayo for $9. Our daughter ordered a spinach salad with the feta on the side. It came with chunks of feta... More

A certified green restaurant on Washington Island. The service was slow but sweet, the breakfast burrito my husband had was amazing. My breakfast was good but not fantastic. Free internet is nice as well.

The sign outside Bread and Water says "Food...glorious food". That's below the kayak that hangs beneath the company name. There are kayak races in June on Washington Island so apparently Bread and Water is a big supporter. Also, there are prayer meetings here on Tuesday mornings but a sign says "Give a prayer request" in an unobtrusive manner. Apparently they... More
