Stopped in during tulip field visit and was so impressed by how tasty and fresh the food was that we stopped in for lunch again the following week on another trip to the area. Cosy atmosphere, friendly staff, and reasonably priced. Loved the oyster po boy and saffron mussels, and the baked goods from next door.

We live in Edmonds, and we had been touring the tulips. We hoped to eat at the Rhododendron Cafe. After pouring over the menu I finally decided to order the delicious beet salad and saffron mussels. My husband chose the pan fried oysters and a house salad. We loved our dishes, which we shared with each other. Absolutely impressive little... More

We stopped here very hungry after a beautiful hike. The service was fast and friendly, the food was excellent. Great all around. The garden room was full when we got there, but if you can, sit there. It's very pretty.

We took a visit to see the flowers in Mt Vernon and ended up in Bow, Wa. We had never eaten here so gave it a try. It is a small menu, but some interesting items on the menu. I had the Gnocci and it was one of the best Gnocci dishes I have had. It had mushrooms cooked in... More

Dropped into the Rhody Cafe on Saturday for weekend brunch. Delicious eggs Benedict with English muffins from the bakery next door. Hempler ham and local eggs, with nice tart Hollandaise sauce. Excellent. Great service, but I was the only one there at 10am.... Highly recommended.

Other reviews tell the story in more detail but four of us went for lunch at Rhody and each meal (all different) was fresh, tasty, contained quality ingredients and was made with careful preparation. In a word: Excellent. Worth the drive.

The meal was to die for. The pasta I had was so awesome and the Alfredo sauce was a dream. Salad dressing was the best, but then what do you expect when it is made fresh. Service was outstanding. Pricey, but very good.

I came with two girlfriends for a birthday lunch. The place is cute, a little rough around the edges, but the food was fresh and good. The drive here is so worth it. We made a day of it, walking at Bayview and having epic ice cream cones at the Snow Goose on the way to Conway. Nothing spectacular, but... More
