“Classic diner on the way to Port Townsend.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

On the way to Port Townsend we stopped at the diner, on the left hand side after you pass the 4-way stop in Chimacum. The line-up of motorcycles outside was the first sign this was the real deal. The pancakes were bigger than your head! The plates were overflowing with food- sausage and biscuits, pancakes with strawberries and whipped cream, eggs and bacon, lots of toast. Pure breakfast bliss.

“We are regulars”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

We like this funky little place...we know the wait staff and we don't need a menu. Like that you can order a "mini" meal...

“A Reliable Comfort Food Landmark”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

The Chimacum cafe is located in the small waypoint of Chimacum Washington on the Olympic Peninsula between Port Townsend and Port Ludlow. I has been around "forever", and consistently served plentiful good comfort food. The breakfasts are legendary, big and delicious.

Lunch is always busy, and dinner is well attended. I enjoy their basic burger and fixins. The cafe specializes in offering home-made pies which are excellent. The food is consistent, and good.

Nothing fancy here, just good eats, and casual dining. No need to dress up; it's come as you are, and enjoy.

“Delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012 via mobile

I had the half-order hot meatloaf sandwich. Delicious, with just enough spice to it to make it interesting while not overwhelming it. The cafe was inviting & clean. The staff was very cheerful.
