I met a friend for dinner on Saturday night and hadn't been to The Fountain, before. We had a nice table, excellent and friendly service and the food was beyond my expectations. I had a steak with blue cheese sauce that I am still dreaming of, days later! My friend had the Angel Prawns and said they were amazing, as... More

Great gorgonzola squash soup! Outstandingly delicious. The reuben was also yummy. Loved it there and will stop again when I'm back in town!

Had the Reuben special and had some of the best pastrami I've had in awhile. Really well done Reuben with just the right size salad as a side. Others at the table had chicken salad, pasta special, and the burger. Everyone ate everything!

If you can find a parking spot, do have lunch or dinner at the Fountain Cafe as it's where many of the locals eat. The seating area is squeezed but colorfully "Port Townsend." Service was brisk and the menu was seasonal. My friend and I each had a cup of the house soup--tomato bisque--and it was excellent. We decided to... More

We were there for dinner--they have very little space, they make you have a reservation or go away for a while and come back. My wife had "the catch" and loved it. I didn't love that the catch was $37. My daughter and I tried two different pasta dishes and we pretty much hated them. For my part I felt... More

Surprisingly busy Sunday dinner time, made better by very pleasant service. Kitchen was busy; great garlic butter for crusty bread, inspired lemon tahini dressed mista. Excellent puttanesca. Glad we chose this cafe.

started with the Mediterranean appetizer which is a caprese with bean and a nice olive tapenade. main was the halibut special with eggplant risotto, both were very good, nicely accompanied by tomatoes and carrots and red beets. dessert was a wonderful gingerbread in vanilla sauce with whipped cream. nummy.

A small cozy Café Bistro in Uptown Port Townsend. Very eclectic, fun unique place. The specials are different every night. Didn't like the Kale Caesar Salad!!! But pasta was terrific. Had lunch and dinner there, better have reservations..

On our return trip from Sequim, we again stopped at Port Townsend for lunch. There was a movie festival going on later that day in town. We headed to the Fountain Café which is located in the uptown portion of Port Townsend in a historical home. The inside is tight but charmingly decorated with eclectic décor and paintings. The menu... More

A narrow upright building looks shoehorned in place, but well worth seeking out! Delicious homemade food, whether you go exotic (wild boar sloppy joe) or conventional (ham & cheese sandwich). Fabulous lunch, but now need to get there earlier to try their breakfast!
