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 superb sandwiches at the Cannery House, perched on a bluff above the harbor, to home-cooked, heart-healthy fare at the Garden Path, the Backdoor Kitchen, and the Hungry Clam, whose outdoor tables offer great ferry- and people-watching.
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 right outside your door, or the Doctor's Office (fast window service by the ferry). 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).
