for the San Juan Islands Washington
Need dining suggestions for San Juan restaurants? Need some tips or recommendations for Friday Harbor restaurants? What's a good restaurant on San Juan Island? It all depends on what you are looking for.
Here are my favorites:
I love Roche Harbor's restaurants, especially Lime Kiln Cafe. They serve breakfast and lunch and the food is fantastic.
Their breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, which includes a couple variations on Eggs Benedict, as well as pancakes, omelets, and a huge selection of fresh daily doughnuts. And wow, their bacon is the best! Cozy cafe-style dining (inside or out) located at the end of the pier with a fabulous view of the harbor.
Market Chef has fresh, really delicious, deli food. It's seriously good eating -- you can taste the quality and care that goes into their food. They'll happily box up your food to go, or you can eat there, inside or out on the deck. Overlooking the harbor above the ferry lanes, at 225 A Street, 378-4546
Cask and Schooner, serving local, sustainable food. Casual dining, and everything is made fresh to order. Delicious! Located at 1 Front Street overlooking the harbor.
Try The Golden Triangle Thai Restaurant, on First Street. Their food is top notch! They have a comfortable little dining room, with beautiful artwork along the walls. You can also request your food to go. Prices are very reasonable. Located on First Street, one block up from the ferry.
Friday's Crabhouse has amazing fresh seafood served inside or out, on three open-air decks. Crab, salmon, clams, mussels, and oysters, as well as burgers, hot dogs, and fish & chips. Open seasonally, located overlooking Friday Harbor, directly across from the ferry dock.
Dinner: I have always enjoyed dining at Duck Soup Inn, on Beaverton Valley Road. It's lovely for special occasions and the setting, nestled amidst forest and ponds, is as wonderful as the food.
Backdoor Kitchen is an exotic destination for dinner, serving unique international-style cuisine. Dine inside or out on the garden patio. A special restaurant for a meal to remember.
