We took the 7:30 Ferry from Orcas Island to Anacortes and found this restaurant as a recommended one for breakfast. We were not disappointed. The coffee was strong and eagerly devoured upon arrival. I chose the scrambled eggs with cream cheese and Dungeness crab hoping...More

Very kid friendly, except for the long wait. Reliable dishes, nothing fancy. No liquor license, in case you wanted a cocktail.

Fried egg sandwich. Add bacon and avocado and you've got yourself the best breakfast in Anacortes. Strong coffee, good friends, it doesn't get much better!

This seemed to be a popular dining spot. Great menu, nice ambience. We were seated outside on the sidewalk as they were full inside, given menus, and waited over 30 minutes before anyone came to take even a drink order. We had been traveling over...More

The restaurant is noisy and the tables are VERY close together. It is great for 2-4 people but not great for larger parties. Also gets quite warm due to close seating. Food so far has been pretty good.

Adrift is a friendly, casual, locavore eatery with a creative and diverse menu. We serve breakfast all day, lunch, and dinner, and we source much of our meats, seafood, and produce from local farmers. We have an extensive seafood menu featuring local clams, mussels, scallops, oysters, crab, smoked trout, salmon, halibut, and catfish. Our Skagit Burgers are locally famous, they are made with local grass fed beef, housemade potato bun, balsamic caramelized red onions, and toasted garlic aioli. Drift in and join us for a great meal.
