“Long wait for great sandwiches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

The Doctor's Office is a fashionably run-down sandwich and expresso shop right next to the Friday Harbor ferry terminal. Service can sometimes be agonizingly slow, particularly when it's crowded with folks waiting for a ferry. However, the food is very good. Sandwiches are generously sized and use homemade bread. Soups, pastries, and even the ice cream are also homemade. There are usually a few vegan choices available for those so inclined. Seating is limited, but on nice days there are additional tables on the porch. Nearest restrooms are across the street in the ferry waiting lot.

“Tiny spot, was hot and crowded”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

Great coffee was fairly slow, the shop was very warm inside and was also packed so tightly it was hard to move around in.

“I Love This Little Joint!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012 via mobile

Combine delicious coffee, homemade ice cream (very, very good), fresh pastries and some kicking' sandwiches and you got a cool place! So, just relax, sip an espresso and tap into the free wi-fi. The service is friendly and fast. This was where I had my last meal on the island. It was great! There are tables on the porch to watch the harbor, ferry, tourists and the wonderful folks of San Juan.

“bake goods and chia”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

Friendly servers, even if it can be a bit slow at times, plus the homemade baked goods are the best as is the chai!
