“Great as always!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

This was our second trip to Friday Harbor. Our first visit was two years ago. We ate at The Market Chef then too. It is still wonderful! Everything is so fresh! It is our favorite lunch spot on the island!

This place has fast service, fresh food, and was a perfect stop before we boarded the Ferry. Wonderful fresh cookies.

“Great deli”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

Fast and good. Lots to offer at reasonable price. Great location in downtown Friday Harbor. Everything was fresh and homemade, with not just your usual deli offerings. Pleasant outdoor seating area or you can get it to go.

“More than a deli”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

Wonderful deli sandwitches, with veg/vegan choices as well. A curried cauliflower side dish was wonderful. Great sweets. Just up the hill from the ferry landing.

“Lots of potential but falls short”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

We got lunch to go here at 1pm on a Wednesday. They were sold out of half their items after waiting in line for nearly 30 mins ( has several people the employees knew skipped ahead of us). The sandwich was not very big or good dispite all the wonderful reviews I had read here. It had mayo soaking the bread even though I was told mayo didn't come on the sandwich. The ginger blueberry scone was dry and completely void of flavor. The roasted pork though was excellent.
