Catkin Cafe is located in the beautifully restored Olga Artworks building. It is attractive, tastefully decorated, and spotlessly clean.

Very nice restaurant near Olga...about 30 minutes from the ferry terminal. It is attached to an art gallery. The coffee is outstanding and the food is freshly made and original creations. Portions are small and a bit on the expensive side, however definitely worth the...More
