Small and intimate. Staff is always friendly and they apparently don't smoke as there are no butts down the sidewalk as is the case with many other PT restaurants. They always have a vegan option and they have kombucha which always makes this non-drinker happy.

Funky Cool spot with good eats. Cozy, not always a table right away, but that's a good sign! Vegetarians delight as well. Check it out, its a hoot! ; )

This petite cafe offers healthy delicious meals prepared with love and it shows. The atmosphere is warm and artfully cozy, a true delight. I highly recommend it for cup of tea or a full scrumptious meal.

This an older laid back spot that has very limited seating. It has delicious sandwiches, burritos, smoothies and serves beer and wine as well.

This small cafe is known locally for its coffee and desserts. My friend said her pressed coffee was excellent. My tuna melt sandwich, with a half pickle on the side, was good but overpriced at $11. We each tried a different dessert and found them lacking for the price. There was not enough caramel sauce for the bread pudding and... More

My dad, my two kids ages 12 and 15, and I had dinner at the Owl Spirit Cafe a couple of hours ago. Wow! The employees are so welcoming, the ambiance is cozy and artsy, and my carnitas burrito was out of this world. Reasonable prices (for Port Townsend). Don't miss this place!

This is a such a great find. Clean, wholesome, fresh food, juices, smoothies, coffees and more. Being Paleo, eating here is a no brainer. The staff works with your meal restrictions at mostly no up charge. The juices are fantastic and you can create your own at no extra cost. I had the lamb Kofte and asked for it on... More

The lunch has six tables, two top, one 4-top, and three 2-top. There is a bar to seat 4. It seems to be a favorite spot for the locals as the tables filled up nearly as soon as someone left. The menu is small, but still manages to offer something for everyone, vegan to cheese burgers. I don't remember the... More

Tucked away, off the main drag, this little cafe was a surprise. Small portions or large, organic, gluten free, vegetarian... all were available. I had a lamb slider while my husband had pulled pork. Both were organic and with fresh bread. Warm sunny days, there's outdoor seating. Inside there's even an overstuffed chair to sink into while you eat, or... More

We finally got the chance to try this joint when we were in Port Townsend on a Saturday, instead of our normal Sundays, when the restaurant is closed. Some people refer to it as little "hippie joint" but I could not see what could be hippish about it. What we found was a small, charming place that prepares your abundant... More

This small cafe has raised the basic to new heights for Port Townsend casual dining. The focus is on sandwiches, burritos, tacos, salads, soups, and smoothies. Owl Sprit does take "local" seriously, with their truly great burgers sourced from locally grown range-fed beef raised just 8 miles away! The shredded onion "haystack" is to die for!
