Great old building. Lots to look at. We go there just off of the 12:00 ferry and just beat the rush. had a Cobb salad and meat loaf sandwich. The meatloaf was good but would have been better hot. Great salad.

Had a great lunch here the other day. Large selections of sandwiches and salads. The California BLT was super yummy! Service was nice and did not take long.

We stumbled on this restaurant on our way into town from the Northern Cascades. We were going on a whale tour so we did not have much time, and ordered online. The website was very easy to use. Our food was ready when we got...there and was excellent. The portions are very generous, we got the Italian sub and the Turkey sandwich. Would definitely recommend this place while you are in town!More

Some people have a favorite thing to order when they eat here. My recent favorite is the “child size” reuben. It’s just 1/2 a large and tasty reuben. When you order your sandwich you can pick all you favorites, the condiments, bread, and frills. There...is outside and inside dining. It all runs very efficiently. You can even bring a dog and dine outside.More

We tried the pastrami, cinnamon rolls, tomato/feta quiche, white bean soup and berry cobbler to go! We actually went there two times because it was soooo good.

We were expecting just another sandwich for the ferry and were surprised with a culinary delight. I had the Tuscan sandwich, my wife had the Crusty Croatian and we will be back after our trip to San Juan to try other sandwiches! Specifically the Reuben!...Cookies were also terrific!More

Wow. Everything was delicious and fresh, just as all the reviews say. Deli club sandwich, 5 stars. Clam chowder, 5 stars. Carrot cake, 5 stars. Kombucha on tap, 5 stars! Everything was fabulous. Place was non stop busy the whole time but moved quickly!

Excellent food and fun atmosphere! We enjoy sharing the the 3 salad plate...plenty for two, or add some soup! Our fave is the chicken mango salad! Can’t leave without a Fidalgo cookie!!

Stopped in for lunch. We weren't sure how things worked but figured out you order at the counter and then find a seat. We were early for lunch but the place filled up by the time we left. Lots of choices. We had soup and...salad. Split one of their special desserts. Loved the chowder. Try it! Casual and fun.More
