If your walking from downtown or through uptown, this is a great special place to enjoy a cup of coffee and/or a very tasty breakfast.

This spot looked good we thought as we walked around town and we knew we would be back. We had a lovely breakfast/lunch there on Saturday when they seem to have brunch and specials for most of the day and Sunday, too. I chose one of their regular menu salads and chose to have the salmon with it - it... More

The three of us met at Sweet Laurettes the first week in February, for a special lunch. my frittata was horrible, cold and rubbery. We were told that there wasn't any kitchen staff that everything was being heated in the oven. If there isn't any kitchen staff close the restaurant down. The damage is done

Not your average breakfast place. Quaint, with a charming garden to eat in. Fresh, local ingredients. Need to go back and try lunch.

In true European tradition, you will take your time here, so come when you have a lot of it. Some dishes are a little routinely flavored and predictable, though good, but some are excellent. Coffee and pastries are good. Nice place to rest over good capuccino with a friend after the Farmers Market. You didn't want to get up again... More

We have only been here for breakfast so far, but plan to go back. It may sound odd, but I have been raving about their oatmeal! LOVED IT!! I have a small appetite and ordered 1/2 order but it was big. We also had the salmon eggs benedict and excellent --- the hollandaise was so light and delicious. Simple ingredients... More

A long-standing Port Townsend spot. Food is fresh, excellently prepared, organic. The servings are generous as well. An excellent spot for breakfast and lunch but the seating is crowded and uncomfortable so this is not the spot for a private or a lingering conversation. Service is generally good but can be inconsistent. If you're coming here it's to enjoy the... More

We moored at Port Hudson and walked to Sweet Laurette's. Dinner is only served 3 nights a week. The atmosphere is very pleasant. The food was outstanding! I had pan roasted duck with potatoes and vegetables. My wife has the squash ravioli. Both meals were prepared very well. The duck was one of the best I have ever had. The... More

I had a beautiful day in Port Townsend that was only made better by a great meal. Laurette is an awesome cook. The short ribs are to die for.

Had brunch yesterday. I had a great pea soup and bread (soup of the day) and a Bloody Mary. The drink was more herbal than I like and not spicy at all. Added lots of Tabasco. Son had lemon ricotta pancakes. 5 star! My husband had the coquette madame. The egg was a bit too done, but overall good. Great... More
