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

Have eaten here several times and have never had a bad experience. Not many places I find can cook an over medium egg properly. The owner is always there talking with guests and making you feel welcome. The food is a great price, generous portions and tasty.

We arrived for a late breakfast and only had a short wait. Four adults and a baby fit nicely into a booth. The Mimosas were huge and tasty! We ordered omelets and the corned beef hash. Both were outstanding. The hash is house made and filled with lots of meat. the bacon was nice and crispy. We will be back!

My wife and I just got back from Friday Harbor where we had the chance to eat at Rocky Bay Cafe for breakfast. Our server was wonderful and had a great personality, the place was clean with a great atmosphere, and the food was delicious and reasonably priced. We went outside and watched an early morning rainbow which was prompted... More
