This place is the best! We happened to pass by it and had to stop in, being great wine enthusiasts. We each had the flight of two whites and three reds and my favorite by far was the Pinot Grigio. The theater red came in at a close second (wine whose proceeds support the performing arts!).
More than just a great wine variety and value at $7 for wine tasting, the owners were just so personable. We felt so welcome and enjoyed chatting with them about our mutual affection for weiner dogs, as well as about island living and wine!
The place is also ridiculously cute, with handmade furniture from one of the three winemakers. I highly recommend you visit here!
It's located right off the ferry from Seattle! We rented bikes for the day, costing us $35/each. We were given a map of the area, which is very bikeable, and off we went. The rentals included a bike lock and helmets too.
$2 for homemade hummus and carrot & celery sticks, yeah!
Perfect-temp latte with a pretty leaf design - heck yeah!
Pastry selection that'll make you drool like a dog - heckers yeah!
We biked from the ferry to here to take our much earned break. Sat on their cute patio, used the clean restroom in the barn, and enjoyed our snacks. Next to a post office, garden store and mini mart.
I had to stop by here since it was mentioned in the Seattle Times "Do It In a Day" feature (seattletimes.nwsource.co…). We sat on the deck overlooking the marina. Wish it had been sunnier out but was marvelous nonetheless.
I am such a fan of great customer service and our server was the perfect example. Made us feel welcome, relaxed and was avaiable for menu and drink recommendations. The drink menu here was awesome. Most of the drinks are ones you wouldn't find elsewhere. I had the pureed rhubarb, Skyy vodka and basil drink (drink name's evading me) and it is one of the top 5 mixed drinks I've ever had. The food menu is a collection of poutine fries, burgers, salads and basic seafood - chowder, fish & chips, etc. Their bar menu was heavily Middle Eastern-inspired, which was a nice surprise.
For my entree I had a $13 bowl of clam chowder! I freaked at the price tag but it made sense because each bowl is made to order. It's not the creamy, chunky chowder I'm used to but the broth was rather oily and buttery. It came with lots of clams and potatoes. Not the best chowder I've ever had but have no regrets.
I'd like to come back next time I'm on the island for the service, view and a cocktail.
The warmed up ham and cheese croissant was the best I've ever had! We stopped in for a snack to hold us over until dinner and the croissant was the perfect choice. The other pastry items looked heavenly too! Thumbprint scones, cupcakes, muffins, cinnamon rolls, breads, etc.
The cafe is spacious and has portraits on the walls. In a strip-mall (as strip-mall as you can get on an island) with outside seating and plenty of parking.

Had to grab after-dinner dessert here and was looking forward to it for my entire day. Since you order before you sample, I committed myself to a single scoop in a waffle cone. There were 49 flavors when I went so of course I had to sample a few. I tried the raspberry cheesecake, mojito, cheesecake and pistachio. I took a leap of faith and committed to the mocha espresso before sampling it. Unfortunately, the mocha espresso was my least favorite of the bunch. The pistachio was decent and the mojito was interesting. The raspberry cheesecake tasted mildly like cheesecake and the raspberry tasted like jam you'd spread on bread.
Though the ice cream itself was not great the service was unbeatable!
The two employees working there were so nice (as was everyone on the island) and the store had a very inviting-to-stay vibe about it. Stop by next time you're nearby and don't be shy to try lots of flavors until you find the one you like.

|I discovered how wonderful massages were when I was working at my very stressful job. I noticed I was keeping all of my tension in my neck & shoulders, and had lots of knots which massages helped with. Now my job is much less stressful so I don't require getting them as often, but still enjoy them very much.||My usual coffee order: 12 oz vanilla nonfat latte.|
