Every meal is incredible! We think New Leaf has the best brunch in the greater San Juan Islands/Seattle/Puget Sound area. We also thoroughly enjoy every item we have tried on their dinner menu. Every year they select their delectable wine blends from Washington State. The chef is incredible!

This restaurant was recommended by a local on the ferry ride to Orcas Island. Delicious crab cakes, outstanding scallops and warm and friendly service. Highly recommended.

Just wanting a light dinner, we chose from the small plates. Despite interesting looking sliders, I chose local oysters and crab cakes. The crab cakes were mostly crab and came with a pear ginger beurre blanc with a bit of habanero. Excellent on all counts. The view out to the sound made it a great evening.

We had breakfast at the New Leaf Cafe. It was so good, not the average breakfast. Great view and wonderful service.

We booked this last minute having read the reviews from others. Great table at the window. Seafood was perfect and the clam soup excellent. Service was welcoming and helpful. Deserves the good write ups from elsewhere.

Our host from the Kangaroo House B&B recommended this place. Its very attractive outside and seems to be a popular dining spot. We didn't have reservations but were able to be seated in the lounge. The bread basket had two different offerings - both very good. When I asked where the breads came from, expecting to hear a local bakery,... More

We stayed at the Outlook Inn & enjoyed walking right over to dinner. Good food. Very pleasant, leisurely service. Memorable: the lovely setting & the mussels: Unusual & delicious preparation, multi-layered flavors, touch of curry

Based on other Trip Advisor reviews, decided to book this restaurant for dinner. My husband and I are not big eaters, so when we saw the starter plates, we were delighted. We were even more delighted with what we ordered! My husband had the lamb sliders and truffle fries and I had the crab cakes. All were outstanding! For breakfast,... More

We had a great dinner at this location. I asked at a local bakery for a restaurant recommendation for dinner. Food & service was excellent plus they have their own wine which was delicious. Dessert was a bid disappointing especially after a great meal. It was a cake which was heavy, dense & dry. It is s very busy &... More

My first time on Orcas island with my friends will forever be etched in my memory, partly due to this place. We got off the ferry and drove to this place. It helped that it was warm and so sitting outside was a natural choice - the views were magnificent. The service was delightful and the meals delicious (the portions... More
