This cafe is downstairs from the Kingfish Inn where we stayed while on Orcas Island. It has a beautiful porch that faces the water. Staff was wonderful and very attentive/friendly. Food was delicious. It was an interesting mix of cuisines- ramen, pasta, grits and okra,...More

We were here in November, which is off season, so I guess the menu is different. It was quite different. We didn't really recognize anything on the menu so picked something to try. I had grits with okra and shrimp and it was delicious. My...More

This place may be a little out of the way for visitors to Orcas Island, but it's worth a trip. We ended up here when we couldn't get into another place and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. While we didn't sit outdoors, the view was...More

Chanced upon this quiet cafe on our first evening on Orcas Island and was glad to find someplace outside of Eastsound. Ended up sitting outside on the deck with a beautiful view of the Marina, but it got a bit chilly as the sun set....More

We spent the day on Orcas visiting and eating our way around the outskirts of the island. We didn't have a reservation here but arrived early enough (5:00 pm) that we had time to enjoy our food before the restaurant was packed full. My husband...More

The West Sound Café serves great food and has a beautiful view, even if you don't manage to snag an outside table. Its a little spendy... my husband's cheeseburger was $15.

We arrived without reservations, & were able to be seated, luckily, as the the "M.O." most places on Orcas seems to be reservations or forget about it. We enjoyed an excellent dinner of fish & chips & a salad. Service was excellent as well. A...More
