Stopped in for lunch while waiting for the ferry to Friday Harbor. My sister had a Monte Cristo sandwich (pan fried) and fries, I had a burger and salad, each about $12, and a glass of wine was $6. Service was good and it was a comfortable, warm atmosphere on a rainy day. Would like to visit again and try... More

My husband and I stopped here for lunch and the food was wonderful! The service was slow; don't know if that is typical or if they were short-handed today.

We both had the same dish, and there was enough that we should have split it. Everything was cooked exactly the way I like it. The service is friendly and the space is welcoming.

Hubby had steak dinner and I had Chicken fried steak. Both tasted great. Baked potatoes were huge. Food portion just enough. Service was great. Waitress was friendly. Not too expensive, just as you would expect from a Mom and Pop type of restaurant.

We braved a windy & rainy day to sightsee in Anacortes. After hours of art galleries and the old hardware store we were looking for a warm place to have lunch. We peeked in the Island Café and it looked like there were lots of locals sipping coffee and reading newspapers. Their menu is varied and quite extensive for such... More

You never leave Island Cafe hungry; you might even take food home. Breakfast is delicious. I like omelettes.

Waited a long time for order to be taken. Once it was taken drinks were never refilled and the order came out incorrect. Once again we were never checked on.
