Food on the San Juan Islands?

jdiddy Aug 29, 2007 03:22 PM

Hi Everyone,
I'm doing a day trip out to the San Juan islands and I'm trying to decide which one to visit. We're just going to take a ferry over and tool around for a few hours and head back. We have a car we can take if needed.

Any good eats on any of the islands that we need to check out?

      Jiddy, The Duck Soup Inn near Friday Harbor has a well established rep.

        Blue Dolphin next to the Friday Harbor ferry is a cheap but good breakfast/lunch place. If you have a car and like seafood, there is a place that sells live oysters, clams, and mussels on the way to Roche Harbor. There is winery on that road that offers tasting. Near where the seaplane lands, there is a house boat-like place that sells seafood. They have nice smoked salmon and dip.

          I prefer Orcas over San Juan because it's a little less touristy and more laid-back. Good eats: Olga Cafe (it's still open, I was just there), Doe Bay (though service is VERY, uh, laid-back, food is outstanding), and The Kitchen for casual meals.
