Although staying only a few doors away from this hotel in Orcas Village, we did not discover their scrumptious breakfasts until a few days into our vacation. On the days we did not cook breakfast in our cottage, we ate here; The food was excellent, of great variety and moderately priced. Had we discovered this gem earlier, I highly doubt... More

My mother and I wished we could have stayed in this wonderful old hotel, but it is not really handicapped accessible, at least the rooms we visited. But this place is absolutely charming, the rooms are lovely and old fashioned. We ate the homemade cookes they serve in the restaurant and drank coffee out on the porch, played Racko, and... More

We had a very delicious breakfast here before making our way to visit the rest of the island. Our breakfast dishes were made to order in rather generous portions. One of us ordered eggs, bacon, diced potatoes, and toast. The other ordered an egg, cheese, bacon sandwich on a giant croissant. Service was very friendly- the lady even brought it... More

Food was served piping hot by the owner and was simply delicious and very filling with a great view. Also conveniently located by the ferry terminal.

We stopped for breakfast before leaving the island. Small, crowded, with a line waiting to order. Good coffee, croissants, and turnovers. Fast service. No atmosphere. Like a Starbucks at rush hour but it is a convenient location.

There isn't a big choice of places to eat at the Orcas ferry terminal. We had Fish and Chips and it was pretty good. The night before we tried to eat there, but they had run out of food, so we had to go elsewhere.

There really aren't a lot of options for food while waiting for the ferry. We asked and were told two. We wanted to sit outdoors so we could have our dog with us. The fish and chips were really good, the Reuben was good but a little burnt and the croissant did not get rave reviews. Service is counter only... More

The limited menu in the cafe suggests that you order simply. Choose a croissant, oatmeal or an omelette and you'll be more than satisfied. The coffee is hot and smooth, the room is tiny and crowded so take it outside to the patio and enjoy the view. When you don't want to fuss, this is your place for a decent... More

We stopped for lunch here before catching a ferry back to Anacortes. It was a beautiful day and we decided to eat out on the front porch. The food was good, I really enjoyed their homemade clam chowder, and the staff was very friendly. We would definitely stop again when visiting the area in the future.

Quaint old house with view from porch. Not too much room inside but service was competent and pleasant. Line moved quickly.
