We stopped in here several times during our stay in Friday Harbor. Great little café with outdoor seating with a good view of the harbor. Service was good and staff was friendly. Coffee drinks were great, and my grandson loved the bagels with cream cheese!

The food was good the coffee was great and the gal that helped us was friendly. The price was fair for what you got. Right next to the ferry waiting line. So if your in line and have time, they even have walk up window.
