We ordered three recommended dishes and love them all, great place and good service. Already plan to go back tomorrow.

Seriously good food. Big portions for not a lot of money. Would eat there again for sure. Highly recommended.

Blue Moose Cafe sits in the middle of Port Townsend's marine repair yard. The location is part of the charm. You will compete for parking with all of the people who do business in the boat yard. The cafe is small and very kitschy and has 2, maybe 3, parking spaces. The staff is very friendly and down to earth.... More

I've been here only one time. The atmosphere was nice...a little noisy, but a popular place with the locals. If you're looking for a "budget friendly" place for breakfast in PT or Sequim it's best just to stay home and make your own because you won't find it. The prices are moderate for breakfast food, but they do use good... More

I think their success has caused them to outgrow their present location. Both for parking and seating. It was a busy day in the Boat Haven. Drove around looking for a parking spot and went In to get a table. My friend was coming soon to meet for breakfast. Gave the waitress my name and she asked when the other... More

Generous servings, reasonable prices, extensive and creative breakfast menu alongside old standards. Good coffee, no espresso, busy as the boatyard they border, this is the locals hangout. Breakfast and lunch only, be patient for service, they're efficient and friendly, but popular. Always a line up. It's worth it.

You'd never expect to find this restaurant in a boatyard- it's been in the same location for years. Don't let this "hole-in-the-wall" atmosphere fool you--the food is truly excellent and very reasonable. The restaurant is small, eclectically furnished, and don't be surprised to encounter a short wait, especially on the weekends. It's worth it! The staff are pleasant and provide... More

How could I ever give the Blue Moose a bad review? They get annual prizes for being the best place for breakfast in Port Townsend, and our family members are regulars there when we have company or need to renew acquaintance with our friends who work or eat there. It doesn't hurt that two of our now-grown kids were employed... More

While I would recommend it for breakfast, I was not over-wowed. Folks definitely talked it up, so maybe it elevated my expectations. I had heard about the biscuits and gravy (which I usually love as a comfort food) I was a little disappointed in the gravy and was expecting it to be more flavorful. Other than those, though, I would... More

We had been told about this little restaurant, read more about it, and decided to try it out for breakfast. It is everything the reviews said- casual, loud, cheerful, somewhat battered and worn, and very friendly. They have several signature dishes- I tried the corned beef hash and liked it, though it was far too much for me to eat.... More
