Not your average breakfast place. Quaint, with a charming garden to eat in. Fresh, local ingredients. Need to go back and try lunch.

In true European tradition, you will take your time here, so come when you have a lot of it. Some dishes are a little routinely flavored and predictable, though good, but some are excellent. Coffee and pastries are good. Nice place to rest over good capuccino with a friend after the Farmers Market. You didn't want to get up again... More

We have only been here for breakfast so far, but plan to go back. It may sound odd, but I have been raving about their oatmeal! LOVED IT!! I have a small appetite and ordered 1/2 order but it was big. We also had the salmon eggs benedict and excellent --- the hollandaise was so light and delicious. Simple ingredients... More

A long-standing Port Townsend spot. Food is fresh, excellently prepared, organic. The servings are generous as well. An excellent spot for breakfast and lunch but the seating is crowded and uncomfortable so this is not the spot for a private or a lingering conversation. Service is generally good but can be inconsistent. If you're coming here it's to enjoy the... More

We moored at Port Hudson and walked to Sweet Laurette's. Dinner is only served 3 nights a week. The atmosphere is very pleasant. The food was outstanding! I had pan roasted duck with potatoes and vegetables. My wife has the squash ravioli. Both meals were prepared very well. The duck was one of the best I have ever had. The... More

I had a beautiful day in Port Townsend that was only made better by a great meal. Laurette is an awesome cook. The short ribs are to die for.

Had brunch yesterday. I had a great pea soup and bread (soup of the day) and a Bloody Mary. The drink was more herbal than I like and not spicy at all. Added lots of Tabasco. Son had lemon ricotta pancakes. 5 star! My husband had the coquette madame. The egg was a bit too done, but overall good. Great... More

Laurette can really cook - she knows food and the local producers and whenever possible, her ingredients are sourced locally. Such wonderful food. You will not be disappointed.

We had a great dinner here - fresh inventive salad, done to perfection halibut with local vegetables, and delectable dessert. We came back for tea and brambleberry tart the next afternoon. This is a find and I hope to return soon.

My wife and I were there in early August for dinner. If you're planning on arriving after 6pm, I highly recommended that you call to make a reservation. They're housed in a charming building with plenty of street parking. The decoration is simple and cozy. The chairs are not the most comfortable, though. Good wine selection and bottled beers. I...
