Casual Dining on San Juan Island

Enjoy breakfast with an ocean view . . . lunch at an outdoor table overlooking the harbor . . . family brunch or dinner al fresco, all an easy walk from Earthbox, your perfect base for a San Juan Island Vacation. Friday Harbor's casual dining choices range from distinctive rustic fare at the Cask & Schooner to multi-ethnic delights at the Backdoor Kitchen, offering romantic outdoor seating. You might opt for vegan fare at Mike's Wine Bar or more casual options at the Hungry Clam or the Friday's Crab House all offering outdoor seating with great views of the harbor.

Mingle with the locals for breakfast at the Rocky Bay Cafe (homemade cinnamon rolls) or The Bean (serving organic coffee and light meals). Just need a good coffee and a morning snack? Try the Earthbox Coffee Bar (summers only) right outside your door, or the Far North Cafe (located next to the car ferry lanes). For lunch or dinner with a Mexican flair, savor Tex-Mex at the family-friendly Mi Casita or the creative fare at Pablito's Taqueria. Try the authentic dishes at the Thai Kitchen, and across the street, take advantage of the bonus for diners at the Rumor Mill: live jazz several nights a week.

Or venture out of town and explore Roche Harbor where you can get a casual meal (and homemade donuts!) right on the pier in the middle of the marina at the Lime Kiln Cafe, or an amazing harbor view from the decks at the Madrona Grill (open seasonally).
