We drove by the café to see where the ferry was for the next morning and decided to have lunch. It was a comfortable place with good sandwiches and nice people.

The selections are limited but a good variety..service is top notch, patient and friendly. Disappointed in the Fish & Chips as they were heavily breaded and not cooked through..however, that said the other 3 orders included the featured soup of the day, a Panni and clam chowder & a side ceaser salad...EVERYTHING was yummy!!!...not a destination spot but if close...

Arrived too early for the ferry to Port Townsend and decided to get some coffee and a breakfast sandwich at the Keystone Cafe. The food & service was good, the coffee hot and the view of the incoming ferry was perfect. Great place to hang out if you are waiting on the ferry. I was told that the fish &... More

As I waited for the ferry, this was a convenient location to watch the water and enjoy a snack. The service was lovely from a young girl. She was graceful in handling all the customers. Food is somewhat limited--soups, sandwiches that are grilled, fried foods, ice creams. There is a large selection of drinks, beers, wines. The best part is... More

When open, the fish and chips are very good. They also have hand-dipped ice cream. It is a favorite place to stop in for a bite before or after riding the ferry to or from Port Townsend.

Just enjoyed fabulous fish n chips n slaw at the Keystone Cafe across from the Pt. Townsand ferry departure Dick. Fish was very fresh and crisply done; chips are the real deal in the round! Eaten here several times and never disappointed-much more than the Ice Cream Shop it's also known for with a large selection that pleases all ages.

This place is directly across the street from the ferry dock which serves Port Townsend. We arrived 5 minutes before they closed (7:30 p.m.) and they were still very friendly and cooked our food. We so appreciated them being so helpful and attentive as we were very hungry and didn't want to drive to downtown Coupe-ville as we were tired... More

A drop-in lunch at this road side yielded no surprises. The fish and chips were good, and occasional peeks at sandwiches being delivered to others indicated that this diner delivers. It is a small operation, so preparation is likely highly dependent on the crew of the day. Well priced and worth a stop.

Thank fiafia
