“Best BLT”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

After days of over-priced tourist meals, stumbling upon this small cafe was a joy. As others have noted, the cafe is unassuming but the food was delicious. I had the best BLT of my life - it was incredible. We enjoyed our lunch so much we went back for dinner and got crab cakes and a couple of salads and ate them on our deck for dinner. If you are looking for simple, delicious food that is not a total rip off I highly recommend this for lunch for a take-away dinner.

“A Must-Visit Place on the island”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Looks kind of unassuming (kind-of looks like a standard deli/sandwich place), but after you have a few lunches there you realize that the food is a cut above -- gourmet recipes with originality. It's a place that is consistent with the personality of Friday Harbor: not pretentious, but really high quality.

“Ditto”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

I was skeptical of the high rating when I first looked in this place, but lunch turned out to be great. I ignored the menu and selected what looked best from the glass counter, which they heated up in the oven and served to us on the back deck, with fresh sauce as required. The food was interesting and clearly freshly made.

“Sandwiches to go”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We really enjoyed our sandwiches to go. The atmosphere was cute and welcoming. The mixed berry scone we had for dessert was flavorful, but too dry.
