Join the locals for breakfast!

Great Place to join the locals for breakfast. The usual eggs and a nice senior special of eggs, bacon and a pancake. Good coffee.

We were lucky enough to have breakfast here twice and got there early enough to get a table right away. You know a restaurant is good when people line up to eat there!

Breakfast was super. The wait was worth every second. Coffee was served quickly and our order was prepared exactly the way we ordered it. I am just sorry I did not order the special . Every plate looked better than the last. Staff should be praised for their great job.We will come back again. Keep up the great job.

Stopped here for a quick breakfast on the way back to the mainland. Great service, delicious "mom and pop" type food that seemed to be a favorite with the locals. Casual atmosphere where neighbors catch up with neighbors.

We happened in here for breakfast our first morning in Friday Harbor. The waitresses were all so sweet and bubbly. And speaking of bubbly, the mimosas were huge!! And delicious!! As was the food. We ate there every morning of our visit.
