Walked in this morning and on their specials board to reach you before you're seated they advertised a meat lovers scramble. I have documented trouble here before with items I ordered, I thought I'd give it another try and feel pretty safe ordering a special.WRONG! When the waitress delivered an omelet she said the cook had changed his mind on... More

Very good breakfast-- everything is homemade and very tasty. We are a family of 4 and were seated right away when we walked in. Drink orders were taken almost immediately; my kids tell me the hot chocolate was "super good." We ordered the waffle of the day (vanilla), Grandma's pancakes (cornmeal, buttermilk, and oatmeal), the fisherman's breakfast (I think that's... More

Breakfast for 5 and we all loved it and took bakery items to go! Everything from the coffee to the apple cinnamon rolls to the biscuits and gravy to the almond croissant, to the cookies, to the chocolate cream puff, everything was amazing!!

We read that TripAdvisors rated this cafe highly. So, of course we had to have lunch there recently and our high expectations were met. I had the bacon/mushroom quiche, a delicately baked selection and a generous serving and my husband chose the avocado, olive and shrimp sandwich which was packed with tasty goodies. He scarfed it down. Pumpkin Chai mouthwatering... More

A country style large bakery/restaurant. We arrived around 11AM Saturday morning. This place is packed. The bakery items displayed in the entrance area looked very impressive. Yet the hostess/waitperson were not very attentive (maybe too busy?). The restaurant looks like converted from a big old factory/warehouse. Very interesting. The food are generously portioned country style. Although we do not see... More

I always plan a way to eat here when I visit Anacortes. Portions are larger than I can eat, but the food is wonderful. They're not open for dinner, but breakfast, lunch, late lunch...yum.

After our first breakfast at the Calico Cupboard we knew that this was our best bet for breakfast. No matter how busy they seem to get folks in, seated, and served, with short waits. The food is well prepared and tasty. The bakery section makes it hard to leave without taking something with you. The staff is knowledgeable, efficient, and... More

Twice we've eaten here for breakfast. They have been very busy both times. Service tends to be a bit slow. What gets us is that people that were seated quite a while after us and their order taken well after ours got their food first. My French toast wasn't even hot enough to melt the butter. The sausage was nice... More

If you are looking for something a bit different in your lunch meal, then stop by this place. They seem to have figured it out that some of folks like to eat healthier meals and provide some good options for us. Clean inside and out. Friendly staff.
