Counting every cute coffee shop, bistro, restaurant, wine bar and public house, Friday Harbor sports over 30 eateries in walking distance to our adorable Bird Rock Hotel. Where to start? Let’s start with breakfast, the most important meal of the day.
Rocky Bay Café
Tried and tested Rocky Bay Café next to the movie theater is known for its reliably fast service and generous portions. This full American breakfast place is popular with locals and tourists alike and worth a wait for a table.
Situated on top of the ferry lanes with amble indoor and some outdoor seating this Mexican restaurant serves breakfast only on Sundays. Don’t miss the authentic Huevos Rancheros and the home-made biscuit and sausage gravy.
Crow’s Nest Coffee Shoppe
Just a stone's throw from the Bird Rock Hotel, this cute place is our favorite for a really good cup of Joe and a quick bite.
The Bean Café
This comfy spot next to the lavender store offers the finest organic coffee drinks, mimosas, beer, light breakfast and lunch. Perfect to wait for the ferry or take a breather from shopping.
If you are in the mood for authentic European style pastries and the best hot coco in town, go here. Also on the menu are pizza, quiche, sandwiches, wine to-go and coffee drinks.
Riptide Waterfront Café
Conveniently located inside San Juan Safaris’ office and gift shop right on the waterfront, this is your place to grab a yummy bagel, a great cup of coffee or a smoothie for your whale watching tour.
