A great place for breakfast if you’re not in a hurry. Coffee was good and the pancakes even better. The pastries looked good if you like them smothered in sugary toppings.

Stopped in for breakfast on drive from Seattle to Vancouver, and we made the right choice. Cinnamon roll French toast is to die for (come with an empty stomach). Great atmosphere, but to be honest, the service was indifferent. Great coffee!

This place has comfort food. Wonderful baked products that are for sale. We always stop for Breakfast or Lunch. They have a big menue and if you can not find something it is your fault.

Great restaurant with great local food. Housed in beautiful old building. All fresh and mostly local produce used. Fantastic fresh homemade food and pastries. My wife had a great ham cheese croissant. I had a great local farm omelette. Fantastic and friendly service. Highly recommend

I have been to the Calico Cupboard in both Mt Vernon and LaConnor. I never could put my finger on why I like the restaurant in LaConnor so much better until this visit. The Mt Vernon restaurant has a great historic location next to two...More

Yes, they do take reservations. Our work group meets there every year for a Christmas breakfast so we reserve ahead of time.
