We enjoyed this sandwich shop on a few occasions during our stay. Excellent place to stop and grab lunch to-go and head out for a picnic on the water. The patio does have great views of Friday Harbor and a spectacular used booked store next door. It was wonderful to enjoy gourmet sandwiches while our children went next door to... More

This is the place to go if you want to grab and go! They offer a wonderful selection of food items and creative sandwiches. It is not necessarily a great place to take a family to sit and dine... However the food is fresh, creative and delicious. It was our go to place for lunch to take with us on... More

We stopped by Market Chef for a lovely espresso in the morning, and four of us came back at lunch time for some take out salads for a bike ride. The staff was friendly and accommodating, and we all thought our salads were excellent. Indeed we came back the next day for more takeout lunch. Eating in looked fine, especially... More

This busy restaurant has very sophisticated sandwiches, but you can expect your order to take a long time at lunch, and the tables are small and few. It took us a while to realize we could use the backyard like area in the back which had a few toy trucks for the kids to play while we waited. It could... More

After reading the accolades for Fish Taco Friday we had to try some. Outstanding fish tacos. A little pricey but excellent quality. Pretty busy but only a short wait.

True I was hungry from a long car + ferry journey and I would have enjoyed baked tennis shoe at that moment but even so this was the most amazing sandwich I have ever had. Amazing bread, excellent meat, great side salad and light layer of dressing. Worth the wait. Fun atmosphere but first and foremost - amazing food.

We have visited Friday Harbor a few times and have really had a hard time finding the combination of excellent food/service at restaurants. We were so happy to have found the Market Chef. We just so happened to be there for "fish taco friday", and the fish tacos were very tasty! We were very happy with the friendly service. They... More
