“Good Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

We stop here for breakfast on route to Seattle. This is a busy place on the weekends but you can grab a coffee at Tony's coffee which is connected to the cafe while you wait. The food is fresh and good value for the money. I am always surprised how good the service is when it is so busy.

“Cool spot with great breakfasts. Always busy.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

We've eaten here three or four times and always meant to review it. It is our favourite spot for breakfast in Fairhaven, maybe in the whole Bellingham area. The Huevos Laredos are two eggs served over blue corn tortillas, melted cheese & black beans with chipotle ranchero sauce, sour cream & guacamole. It makes a great breakfast. They do potatoes really well here. Their Potatoes O'Brien are well cooked home fries with onion and peppers and are almost a meal in themselves. They usually have an interesting omelet special - we've had smoked cheese, smoked salmon, something interesting with chorizo. All great. You might have to wait a few minutes on the bench for a table but service is fast and once you are at your table you can be fed and out in under 30 minutes. The coffee is good and they make a mean cup of tea.

“Great Mexi Mochas!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Stopped in this afternoon for something cold and cofee-ish. The lovely barista not only whipped up a couple of these slightly spicy iced coffees, she also was able to direct us to a beautiful walk we had never taken before AND to convince my hubby we needed to go to Pepper Sisters (see my other review for that) for dinner! Next time, I will ask her to throw a little more cayenne in the coffee but this was a great find. We've had coffee here a few times after having breakfast next door at the Harris Avenue cafe, but this was our first Mexi Mocha. it wont be our last.

“Best Breakfast in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

The food here was so fresh and delicious! Amazing omelet choices and the potatoes are to die for. The prices are very reasonable and the service is great - the restaurant is connected to Tony's Coffee so the coffee drinks are wonderful as well. There is also a beautiful outdoor garden area to dine in. It is popular on weekends so get there early or be ready for a wait.
