As the title denotes, this is the wow about this cafe. And I've tried a lot of vegetarian burgers and they mostly (with the exception of beyond beef), all fell flat. In fact, if my husband had ordered for himself then raved about it, i...More

Dining options are limited in Roche Harbor but we were pleased with what was offered. We started our day of cycling with breakfast here. The skillet breakfasts were full of protein and a good way to start the day. Coffee was also delicious!

Delicious eggs, bacon and cheese along with great hash browns. Serving size is large enough to share.

I have celiac and while they do not have specific GF options, they can make things GF (scrambled eggs for breakfast, cheeseburger without the bun, etc...). My husband loves their donuts which definitely are not gluten free.
