We liked the simple breakfast menu, it was delicious, However the restaurant is small and loud and the line was kind of long.

Was shocked at how light the eggs benedict and hash browns were - not greasy at all. Hallelujah! Breakfast served all day, wait staff very friendly.

We visited this cute cafe on December 21st. They were busy but we got a table right away. The service was quick and friendly. Our breakfast dishes were made quickly and the portions were very generous. The prices were reasonable as well. I would definitely visit this location again for breakfast, if we're ever on the island again.

this is the sort of breakfast/lunch restaurant that is fun to go to on vacation. It has loads of local charm and the food is reasonably varied and pretty tasty. As with everything in Friday Harbor, it isn't exactly cheap, but there aren't a lot of alternatives.

Friday Harbor is trendy and tony and overpriced, with a bit limited range of places to eat. We looked around a bit and then decided to try this very ordinary looking restaurant for breakfast. The prices were reasonable, service was quick, and the egg-centric meal was just fine. I had eggs over easy, wheat toast, and hash browns. All good.... More

A good place for lunch or a late breakfast. They are pretty consistent. We avoid it when there is a line.

we were there for an early breakfast - we got there as soon as it opened ( 6am ) and had pork chili Verde and eggs rancheros - best thing I think I have ever eaten - small friendly and very popular - get there later and the line goes out the door

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.
