“Both waitresses scowled at us”
Reviewed October 18, 2013 via mobile

After waiting uncomfortably for over 10 minutes without a menu, we left.

We are average looking athletic senior citizens. For some unknown reason, we were not going to be served.

“The Best Place to Breakfast in Forks -- Any Time of the Day”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

Reviewers who rag about Forks Coffee Shop being a “small town diner,” or grouse about its aging décor and musty odors, are being ridiculous. Forks IS a small town, and its buildings have a long and rich history. Furthermore, anyone who visits the Olympic Peninsula has come to experience the rustic beauty of ancient rainforests and rugged beaches -- NOT to partake in some kind of a la-di-dah, Fine Dining event. The Forks Coffee Shop is a warm and wonderful place where you can enjoy traditional American diner fare in an authentic setting, at dirt-cheap prices. If your waitress seems rude, it’s probably because she’s bone-tired from being on her feet for hours on end -- give her a break, and a big tip. If the food quality is sub-par (in your opinion), get over it. You’re visiting a magical area, and eating in an old-time diner. Embrace the experience! If the lunch or dinner fare worries you, they serve breakfast all day long. As for those who want to enjoy a full-bodied cuppa (coffee or tea), walk across the street. The Mocha Motion Espresso hut is fabu. They even have fruit smoothies -- something you’d not expect to find in an old logging town. Hey, Twilighters! Their lunch menu includes Bella’s veggie burger (the “Garden Burger”), and her favorite Berry Cobbler is always available.

“Granny 109”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

The food is vary good and the staff is vary friendly and will always keep your coffee full.
This is the local hang out for all the fisherman and the guides for both hunting and fishing.
I have fished with Hunley Guide service and he is one of the best in the area. We have always been able to come home with fish when Craig has taken us down the river.

“A Feast for the Eyes”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

If your a sportsman, you will love this place. My hubby would love the mounted deer and elk heads and the country décor. The place seems to be always busy, and the servers are down to earth people, happy to be there and very pleasing.
We went for breakfast. A word of advice...go HUNGRY!
Lots on the menu to choose from. The pancakes are huge! I got a 1/2 order of Biscuits and Gravy which was more than I could eat. The food was good, but without the gravy, I would not have eaten the biscuits. Pretty solid for my taste, but if your a logger or hunter, they would surely stick to your ribs for the rest of the day. The bacon was crisp and plentiful. We could have easily split one breakfast between us and had left overs. Certainly your $$ worth.
Good going Forks!

“Ok considering options”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

The French toast was delicious, perfectly cooked. The other items we had (sausage, waffle, breakfast sandwich) were dry, a bit over cooked. Considering the options in this town, and considering we were hungry, it met our needs. Service was fast. Atmosphere like a basic roadside diner.
