Super friendly owners, this cafe was on a list of recommendations from the hotel we were staying at and it did not disappoint! Husband and I both had the best French dip on the best melt in your mouth bread. I also had hot cocoa with a homemade marshmallow carmalized to yummy perfection and hubby had a triple shot white...

A nice courtyard with a bench under a shady tree and other seats outside to eat, it is a great place to visit. They have all kinds of desert choices and sandwiches on the menu, with many vegetarian options. They had a great tasty clam chowder for pescatarians, just clams without the bacon that seems to now be common in... More

I ordered the chef salad, which came with a large slice of homemade whole wheat bread. The salad was huge and could have easily been shared or split. The salad was tasty and fresh, and exactly what I expected. My husband ordered the three napkin Reuben. As a regular consumer of Reubens, he said the flavors were there, but the... More

I keep going back to this cafe for lunch, and not just for the well-made soups and sandwiches and pies. This is a family-run cafe where locals gather and where you'll always find boat-builders and writers and musicians. Quite often, musicians perform here during the afternoon. If you want to feel at home in Port Townsend, check it out.

A large selection of "hand crafted" sandwiches, soups, salads, and more! I had the pulled pork sandwich my companion had the Turkey Cranberry, both on homemade bread. Very delicious and filling. Service was fast and friendly, but arrive early because its "counter service" and this place seems to be very popular (for good reason) We're here on a boat building... More

I have to admit to being addicted to Heidi and Will's establishment; no they're not my relatives or close friends, but they seem like family now. The chowder and pea soup is great, the bacon thick, the club sandwiches challenge your jaw muscles, the salads and quiche fine, even the little tub of jam is homemade! But then... it is... More

The food is what it is, not the best but fills the belly. Would not go back for breakfast, because the portions were small and not particularly good. Lunch is better, and they have decent sandwiches. Mostly, the casual atmosphere is peaceful and welcoming. The croissants, cinnamon loafs and cookies are terrific, although the cookies could be less sweet.
