Second time here, and good even years later. We split the fish and chips and found the cod excellent with light breading and lightly deep fried. Staff was wonderful and pleasant. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

We have been here just a few times and I really like the location but the food was not good. Not terrible but certainly not enjoyable...there are much better choices in Coupeville. We have been three times, never again.

My sons and I are pho aficionados. We've been to Kim's many times and find that their pho is as tasty as any you'll get in the Seattle area, including places like Pho Bac. At first, I was surprised by the quality "out in the boonies" until I realized that Kim is Vietnamese. The cafe does not have a huge... More

We love Thai food. Having it outdoors on Penn Cove just added so much more to the great meal. Good prices and service. Love the casual vibe. It didn't hurt that we had also just kayaked, renting them from who I believe to be the 'mama' of the whole operation there. Fun, fun, day.

My husband & I were visiting Whidbey Island. Our son-in-law was stationed in Oak Harbor in January and this was our first visit. We had been to the Lavender Farms and they wanted to show us Coupeville. We walked down the pier and found Kims. It was my husband, daughter and her husband and our 2 grandsons. The service was...

Thus cafe is at the of a short pier. We had wanted to sit outside but it didn't look like there was outdoor seating. It was there....nice picnic tables overlooking the water. Food was very good and prices were excellent! Homemade clam chowder was delicious. Would definitely recommend.

We were getting cold and wanted something warm. We stopped here and got Thai-Style Chicken Curry. It was very good. What was really nice is that we wanted to share. They said OK. When we got the dish, they had actually given us two bowls and it looked like it wasn't just half an order but more. The view is... More

We walked the long pier in the very chilly wind to have dinner only to find it was not open. It was well within the hours of operation, but closed. So we took a few nice scenic photos and went elsewhere to eat. Too bad.

We were there with a group of 20 and we all had their mussels...they come with a huge chunk of French bread to dip in the buttery/wine/garlic/mussel juices. Everyone was very happy with the meal. They serve Vietnamese Pho and some Thai dishes besides the "American" seafood items.

Went for lunch on a summer day and enjoyed eating outside on the spatious deck. The restaurant is in the Coupeville Pier Building. Unique blend of Vietnamese and traditional American options on the menu. We ordered the Vietnamese Crepe and a Chicken Bahn Mi (subbed onion rings for the fries.)
