Visited twice...one visit it was outstanding...wonderful food and service - people were lined up out the dirt waiting.... The second visit was the opposite. Disappointed, but if I see lines out the door, may give it a try again.

We stopping for breakfast and I immediately loved it! It smelled good and it was bright and artsy. Staff were kind and gracious! I understand the five star rating. They deserve it!

Loved our breakfast at Rocky Bay Cafe(right on the main drag in Friday Harbor). I had a breakfast burrito that was enormous and delicious...I had to take half of it home with me. Server was great and we arrived early enough that there was no wait and we didn't wait long for our food. The decor is quirky and fun.

This cozy spot located on the "main drag" in town walking distance straight up from the ferry. Booth and table seating with a varied menu that is the ultimate in "diner food" dining. Breakfast and lunch served all day long with good menu selection. We had luncheon sandwiches which were cooked to perfection and very tasty. All sandwiches were served... More

Rocky Bay is a reliable breakfast and lunch establishment conveniently located in Friday Harbor....walking distance to just about everything....Friday Harbor has lots of places to eat but Rocky Bay is one of the few that feels more like a local diner. Staff is welcoming and the menu pretty good with lots of standards for those looking for comfort food.

Very busy even at 10AM but worth the wait. Crab Benedict was excellent! Open seating. I would bet the locals eat here a lot.

This was our first visit to Friday Harbor. We were fortunate to immediately find this place! We heard it was a local favorite and now we know why! Everyone else knows, too, so you might have a little wait. But it is worth it - generous portions!

We ate here twice while in Friday Harbor for an Elderhostel. Food was great, service very good and the price was moderate. Most prices in Friday Harbor are higher than the main land. The joy of living on an island. I had poached eggs, with Crab Cakes on a English Muffin. Wonderful! Next day we had breakfast after church and... More
