I am a vegetarian, so I cannot comment on the taste of the burgers at this place, but I will say the looked like the ones my mom used to make with a ½ inch thick burger between the buns. The French fries I did eat and they were fine. The green salad was uninspiring, but then this is a cheap eat kind of place right on the water. I felt lucky they had lettuce. If your not looking for something fancy (Which is right upstairs from this place!), then this place will do just fine for less than 10 bucks.

Parking at city lot north of this building (free) 3hrs. or in Arnie's lot, or street side.
Do not park in Senior Center lot---it is for Senior Center activities only---no beach or wave viewing from cars should be done here nor beach parking for families.
Please respect the Seniors activities.

Located underneath Arnie's Restaurant facing the yacht basin, this easy-access cafe
hosts breakfasts, burgers, sandwiches, dogs, salads, fries,rings etc,etc,.Coffee, Tea,
pop (soda??) must ask for water as it is not visible.Groups of six-eight perhaps OK
by pushing two tables together but it is tight for others.

BUT, it now appears (Great News) this
casual "Eatery" is the only remaining location in the downtown area (and maybe larger) where one may purchase Real Ice Cream that is hand-dipped in small dishes, cake cones, and waffle cones. They offer today; Chocolate, Bubble Gum, Mint Choc Chip, Orange Sherbet, Vanilla, some kind of cake/cookie dough, and wallah! Wild Huckleberry. You get these at counter. Food will be delivered to your table. Buss your own garbage to help out.

The ice cream was delicious. The seating area was clean and so too tables and chairs. There are small areas outside to sit and enjoy your orders takeout nearby
or on the fishing pier, or over (north) at the adjoining Bracket's Landing picnic tables.

Cake cones are single dips (generous) and the waffle cones are double dip (generous). What a great location and family friendly place to take a brief break
from beach and recreational activities...Note: This is Port property and no bicycles,
skates,( Kids don't often follow the rules) or boards permitted. Dogs OK south of the beach area only for sure not on beach front anywhere (Edmonds' Ordinance)
(Park for doggies only) four blocks further south.

Other current reviews about other meals/food items available and are also
complimentary. NOTE::: Public Restrooms located outside by fishing pier Ranger Station or south one block along boardwalk at Port Office Building (very Clean at this location).Do not feed the Gulls!

Too early for the ferry so stopped in here for bite & coffee. One of us had the lemon cake which was unbelievably awesome. Two had ham & cheese croissant which was unbelievably awful. Soggy, plus barely any ham & cheese. My local highway coffee stand serves better. Can't comment on the coffee as I didn't have any…but stay away from the H&C croissant!

With a nice view onto the water you can have everything from crab to chicken. The prices are moderate and you can go to a family restaurant or to the first floor where it´s a little bit more expensive.

Small spot under Arnies at the fishing pier; next to the Edmonds marina. You'd miss it if you blink. Good burger-big enough to split ($6), good chili, not so good potato fries. Have not tried anything else on the menu. Popular ice cream spot to go in and get a cone. Have gone back several times for the burger.
