We had breakfast. The service and food were both very good. As noted by others there are a limited amount of tables, but we shared ours with another person and it was super. Would we go back.

This is the best place to eat on the island. Good fresh, hearty meals. The breakfasts are huge and there is always a line for it. We lucked out as we had a late lunch. Sandwiches were yummy and the burgers were fantastic! My boys inhaled them. Very nice staff also. I love the art work in there too. Too... More

We waited 30 minutes for one of the dozen or so tables in this small, busy cafe. It was worth the wait. Everybody enjoyed their hearty and well-prepared breakfast items. The service was fast and friendly and the wait time allowed us to meet other travelers.

There's only a few places open early in the AM for breakfast on this island so get there early or be prepared to wait. My biscuits and gravy with scrambled eggs were delicious. My husbands French toast was disappointingly small in portion size.

We enjoyed eating at Rocky Bay twice during our visit to Friday Harbor, once for lunch and once for breakfast. It's a popular place, so be ready to wait for a bit. The service is quick and friendly once you get a table. The breakfast was delicious and huge! Had a great BLT and burger for lunch. Give it a... More

Not a bad place to start your day on Friday Harbor. Affordable & Fast with decent food. Come early or there will be a line after 8am.

Small little place but big yummy breakfast. Under 10 bucks for 2 eggs, hash browns, toast, 4 bacon or sausage and a drink. Better get in there before 8 am as the line starts and it looked like it got to be a long one.
