Near downtown, good food though. You have to order at the counter first then find a table. Line stretched out the door and leaving customers would bump into incoming customers. Café inside old house, so there isn't a lot of room getting around without bumping into things. Setting is very noisy.

Went here for a Chef Salad, Tuna Sandwich, Spicy Chai and a cinnamon roll. It was all so tasty, filling, great service and relaxing. This is one of our favorite restaurants for locals and tourists. The bread is made on premises, White, wheat and sour dough. Yummm. Service is great, you don't have to wait long. Their desserts are also... More

Hubby had the Pulled Pork sandwich and I had the Three Napkin Reuben. Both were delicious and I had to pack part of mine "to go". We stopped on the way out the door to grab a couple of Cinnamon rolls. yummy. They also have "brown bag" lunches to take out if you have somewhere to go. Very nice place... More

This is a LOVELY, family owned cafe and bakery. They serve breakfast and lunch or an early dinner. They also serve local wines and beers. The sandwiches are made with home made bread (gluten free if you ask), and all the desserts are home made - and incredible. Everything, EVERYTHING, is made there by this family and served to you...

We were in Port Townsend to celebrate my birthday. Walked into several other places, looked at the menu, looked around, and walked out. When we walked into this place, all five of us, after looking at the menu, decided this was the place. Friendly service with very tasty food! It was a hot day so we sat inside. The whole... More

Located on a small side street, it is one of those places the locals go. Limited breakfast and lunch menu but with a surprising variety of items. NOT your usual fare. Great selection of fresh baked scones, cookies and pies that are not to be be missed. You won't be sorry for your choice of this family run cafe.

Pleasant staff, lots of outdoor seating. We were there on a Sunday and they were having open mic in the courtyard. Very relaxing. Food was not exceptional but good.

My wife and I make a point of dropping in to eat when we are in town. Over the last 18 years there have been changes but all for the better. Their baked goods are home made and melt in your mouth. When there is someone playing and singing in the background you almost feel like you're back home! Don't... More

My husband and I were looking for a place to have a late lunch in Port Townsend. I had been here before with a friend and since we were parked fairly close, we chose the Courtyard Cafe. It's in a very old house and the restrooms, with unusual decor, are upstairs via some pretty steep stairs. When you first walk... More
