“Good breakfast grub”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Good breakfast spot in town. Usual suspects like French toast, pancakes, bacon, eggs etc. Service was very good. Small place with limited seating so get there early.

“Much better than rating”
Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

Locals eat here. Great brunch. Try the Huevos Con Chorizo. Time your eating between ferry arrivals so you won't have a wait

“Great Charm and food”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

This is a must when in Friday Harbor - great food, service and local charm - the entire family enjoyed breakfast. We had to wait outside for a table for 5 minutes, not a big issue and lots to watch as you wait. Owner came out a couple of time to update us and checked in once we received our meals. Pancakes, eggs, toast, hash browns where all perfect. No donuts that morning as the baker was off. Very charming and you could feel the local flair.

“Very Nice Breakfast”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

It's not on the water, but that's the only drawback I can think of to this Cafe. I ordered their egg scramble - marinated steak, spinach, parmesan cheese and onions and asked to substitute a biscuit for the hash browns and toast. The server was very friendly and the meal was delicious. A friendly sort of vibe as locals greeted each other. I'd come here again.

“Should be rated higher than 14!”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

We got off the ferry to wait for our whale watching trip and stumbled upon this place and were lucky to be seated right away. Food was all excellent with top qualify ingredients. Owner stopped by to talk about the town and his place. Service also great, efficient and quick. Favorites were the pancakes and jellies. Of course, since a tourist town, prices higher than at home, but still a good value considering the other options.
