Yummy soup and quiche for lunch on a rainy day. My only complaint is that the baked goods are too big. If you don't have someone to share with, you'd eat a lot of goodness...

The baked goods are all delicious. The coffee, which I think came from a roaster in Seattle, was fantastic as well.

Brown Bear Baking lives up to its reputation! Great pastries, cookies, scones etc. The croissant with ham was delicious - the pastry wonderful. The Coffee was also terrific as was the nice sitting area outside were you could enjoy your pastries. Highly recommend. Friendly staff.

Brown Bear Baking is not to be missed. It's pastries are outstanding, and islanders differ only over their favorites. For me it's the currant buttermilk scone, for my friends the breakfast buns, the intensely chocolate muffin, or the bread pudding with fresh seasonal fruit. Top it off with a coffee drink from a small Seattle roaster. Yes, there's often a line, but it's worth the wait, and lots of outdoor seating on these beautiful summer days.

Another jewel for the crown of Orcas Island! Brown Bear Baking Company is amazing!! I spent a week on Orcas staying at the Cabins on the Point, kayaking around the island and every morning I stopped by Brown Bear to load up on coffee, quiche, and sandwiches to go. I was overwhelmed by the array of beautiful, delectable goodies on display. I bought rounds of bread that were crusty, chewy on the out side, soft, moist and fragrant on the inside. Perfect for sandwiches, dipping in clam juice or just eating! The staff was friendly and attentive. All I can say is, go early and come back often! This truly is a jewel and one that is here to stay!
