The cafe is 20 minutes or so from Eastsound. Ensure the place is open before making the trek. Six of us sat outside on a glorious day overlooking the water. Busy birds and the occasional boat added to the view. The food and coffee were very good. My friend ordered the halibut sandwich without the bread (not doing grain). Her meal came out with a microscopic amount of halibut. After complaining the waitress provided additional fish which was nice. They also didn't charge us for my husband' meal because it arrived about 15 minutes after everyone else's meal. Yes, there were problems, but they made it right. The location is lovely, particularly on a sunny day.

We were very happy to find a restaurant on the far side of this island as we were staying in Olga. We popped in without reservations and we're able to be seated at the bar. Servers/bartenders were the nicest folks.

We were looking for light fare, appetizers to end the day. We had a couple house drinks (great ginger beer in the Mule Variation, very very gingery!), steamed clams, grilled dates, and some filled puffs (sorry cannot remember the name) and a couple desserts.

We were sad that the only meal served during our early Sept stay was dinner, as we would have loved other meals in this wonderful setting. The evening we were there was Indian food night and, while spicy, it was authentic. Wonderful staff, all super friendly, good prices, and one of the best places to eat on the island.

Menu is extremely limited. Would be nice to have a gourmet burger for those who wanted something light and not eclectic.

Needed to find a place that had vegan - and other types of food. Found them through someone else and they took us right away without a reservation so we could make our ferry back. Food was different - and good. atmosphere is unique - a must see
