On our one-day trip to Orcas Island we stopped here for brunch, and it was excellent. My omelette was great, and my husband adored the unique maple syrup (creamy, not thin) on his pancakes. Apparently, the syrup is made with a special recipe. If we ever visit the San Juan Islands again, I would stay in Eastsound just to be... More

I took my daughters here for brunch. My oldest daughter had a waffle with berries and cream and said it was fantastic (she is an experienced waffle eater). My youngest had the green smoothie. I tasted it too and we both agree it was yummy and even ordered a 2nd one. I just had scrambled eggs that tasted very fresh... More

We ate breakfast here one morning and dinner one night. They are not open everyday, so be sure to plan accordingly. The chicken and waffles was the best I have ever had! We didn't have reservations for dinner, but the staff were warm and welcoming anyway. If I went back, I would be sure to reserve a spot for dinner.... More

We used to live on Orcas, and the New Leaf Cafe always went toe-to-toe with the Inn at Ship Bay for top honors for restaurants on Orcas. We now live in Chicagoland where restaurants are great but few match the New Leaf. Tonight we had unbelievable oysters and superb crab cakes for appetizers, a halibut entree that was cooked to...

My husband and I ate here twice during our visit to Orcas Island. Once for dinner and again the next morning for breakfast. We absolutely loved everything we had! The scallops were incredible and the smoked salmon pasta was too! The breakfast special was fried polenta topped with a poached egg and candied bacon with a side of warm spinach.... More

Snuck away from campsite to have a good breakfast in town. Loved the location and view. Had the two egg special with the chicken sausage. Others around me had the Belgian waffle. My breakfast was delicious, loved the sausage. Waffle was gluten free buy not vegan, as I had hoped to bring something back for my son.

Recently had dinner here while on vacation exploring Orcas Island. There is not a lot of places to have dinner on Orcas, but this one is outstanding. I started with mixed greens with white balsamic vinaigrette dressing. Very good. The main dish was grilled salmon with pear-ginger beurre blanc and vegetables. Excellent. The service was very good as well. They... More
