Ranked #31 of 86 Restaurants in Port Townsend

Description: This small cafe has raised the basic to new hieghts for Port Townsend casual dining. The focus is on sandwiches, burritos, tacos, salads, soups, and smoothies. Owl Sprit does take "local" seriously, with their truly great burgers sourced from locally grown range-fed beef raised just 8 miles away! The shredded onion "haystack" is to die for!

“To "live for" cuisine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2011

This cafe prepares fresh soups, and usually 2 to 3 types. A bowl of soup with a biscuit and a side salad is more than enough to satisfy. If you like freshly pressed juice, they can do that for you too. Around lunchtime they are generally busy so get their when they open. The staff is warm and caring.

“Best New Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2011

We visit Port Townsend every year and love to eat at the many excellant choices of restaurants in this little town. The Owl Spirit Cafe was new for us this year and in a word it was "wonderful". My partner and I had lunch there first and then took guests there the next day because it was so good. Everything was so fresh. The meat for the hamburgers was local, as was most everything else. Each member of our party raved about their selection. Prices was very reasonable. Staff is very friendly and while the ordering is at the counter it does not distract from the the overall atmosphere of the cafe.

“Raises the Basics to New Heights!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2011

Port Townsend has no shortage of shops serving soups and sandwiches, but The Owl Sprit has raised the bar for local quality. The owners take sourcing local seriously, with the beef for their excellent burgers coming from a farm less than 10 miles away. Soups are innnovative and delicious, the "haystack" fried onions are to die for, and the tacos and burritos are unusually good. A selection of locally produced beer and wine is unusual for this kind of cafe; the availability of wonderful locally produced hard cider is exceptional. The night we went a classical guitarist entertained and created the perfect mood!
