we ate here twice while staying on san juan island. Great breakfast both times. Friendly staff, funky art and terrific breakfast. Place got pretty busy. Im guess its one of the only spots for a sit down breakfast.

So this appeared to be one of the few restaurants in town that serve a substantial breakfast. On Sunday morning the place was packed with a line outside for awhile. We ate somewhere else instead. Monday morning was quiet, with mostly locals or so it seemed, and we slipped right in. I ordered the omelet special which had onions, peppers,... More

We ate lunch here. When I let the waitress know about my gluten free needs, she suggested the fish wrap, but change it over to corn tortillas. When it came, the fish was battered and fried. I couldn't eat it. They replaced it with grilled chicken, but I waited another 20 minutes for this. (Meanwhile my husband was done with... More

You may need to wait a little while but it's well worth it. You won't leave hungry afterwards and the price is right!

The staff was great and made our meal even more enjoyable. Our toddler loved the waitress and they have the coolest highchair that attached to the table. Never seen him more comfortable.

Just a couple of blocks from the ferry terminal in Friday Harbor. A very popular place with great service and good food. I only gave it a 4 because the eggs in my Huevos Rancheros were not poached. Still a good meal.

Don't let the wait fool you, the line to get in moves fast and is well worth the wait. Our first morning on island we came here because it's an easy walk from where we were staying. We were so impressed with the food and the friendly staff that we came back two ore times. My husband and I had... More

Service was prompt and friendly.Opted for a corned beef hash plate and a senior breakfast. The hash had been made on site and was shredded vice ground. Shredded potatoes were mixed with corned beef,... More
