April 14, 2018 Velvet Champine

Surrounded on almost all sides by water, Port Townsend offers many places to launch your vessel of choice, from rowing scull to yacht. Frequent races, regattas and the annual Wooden Boat Festival testify to the relationship between land and sea. For the land lubbers, there are also numerous parks surrounding the city, including Fort Worden and Old Fort Townsend State Parks and, further away, Olympic National Forest. An artists' haven, the town is home to many galleries and a vibrant Art Walk.

The Fountain Cafe

Reviewed By Gayle A - Puyallup, United States

My husband was working in Poulsbo and discovered this amazing place. We have actually driven from Puyallup for their amazing lamb sliders - and I don't even care for lamb. They have an amazing way - if we ever become wealthy, we will move close to this restaurant and order out for the first month! The food was amazing and the service great too. I highly recommend their stuffed mushrooms!

Blue Moose Cafe

Reviewed By RavensFriend - Port Townsend, Washington

Sometimes you have the craving for a truly really wonderful breakfast. It's here and it is value priced -- meaning it's affordable. The corned beef hash is the best in town -- and I have made a very systematic study. The same is true for their vegetarian scrambles and hashes. And someone in the kitchen understands if you touch biscuits too much you ruin them. If you are looking for a place where you can afford to slowly eat through a yummy menu, look no further.

Pippa's Real Tea

Serving teas from around the world, scones with real clotted cream, pastries and lunch items. Everything made in house. High Tea on Saturdays. Also serving wines from Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. Beautiful courtyard garden (dog friendly!)

Reviewed By 3AngelsDD - Houston, TX

The best tea and scones I've had since my last trip to England. The peach/nectarine torte was scrumptious and the simply made sandwiches, perfect for a light lunch. The only disappointment was they didn't have the delicious Clementine cake we tried on our last visit.Thank you so much for your kind words. We're very happy you enjoyed our scones and the peach nectarine torte. The clementine cake is my English sister-in-law's recipe and will definitely be featured in our upcoming cookbook. Stay tuned!

David and Alison have owned the Silverwater Cafe since its opening in 1989. They have built the restaurant on the idea that bringing people together to enjoy good food, good wine and great friends is one of the most important things in life; and the desire to be a thriving addition to this lovely community of Port Townsend that we call home.We believe in quality and strive to continually perfect our craft. We at the Silverwater Cafe invite you in for a moment of casual elegance where you can feel at home with your kids, family and friends.

I judge a restaurant by certain menu items and the Reuben is one of them. The Reuben at the Silverwater is one of the best I've ever had. I added a little horseradish and the combination of taste was spectacular. There are so tantalizing choices on the lunch menu. I may be stuck on the Reuben every time we visit PT. I would also recommend the blackberry pie. My wife had a lentil veggie burger which she said was very good, but she'll try something else the next time we visit this restaurant.

Spruce Goose Cafe

Reviewed By Jeffrey L - Seattle

Best service and excellent experience overall. The servers are always cheerful and responsive. They have many different wonderful, delicious meals. Breakfast or lunch, it’s all excellent food. Don’t forget to get the pie. All of their pies are tasty. The atmosphere is right out of the 1940-50s. It’s clean and fun. You can eat outside on the deck too. It feels great to be there, rain or shine. I usually fly in to the Jefferson County Airport and can park right up next to the cafe.

The food at Hudson Point Cafe is first rate most of the time. Service can be very slow and at times, nonexistent. If you don’t mind the service issues, it’s a good choice.

Alchemy Bistro and Wine Bar

Reviewed By Ed M

We came here upon a recommendation from the Ravenscroft Inn. The food was excellent and portioned just right. The scallops were incredible! From our discussion with the server, it appears that they make just about everything in house. You can tell a lot of locals come here which says a lot of good things in our minds. Highly recommended.

Owl Sprit Cafe

This small cafe has raised the basic to new heights for Port Townsend casual dining. The focus is on sandwiches, burritos, tacos, salads, soups, and smoothies. Owl Sprit does take "local" seriously, with their truly great burgers sourced from locally grown range-fed beef raised just 8 miles away! The shredded onion "haystack" is to die for!

Cute little place, with the freshest food, the best in town. Good salads and sandwiches. Fabulous kebabs. Good desserts. I cannot find any food that I don't enjoy at this place.

We were lucky enough to get an outside seat on an unexpectedly warm and sunny October Sunday. Salmon sandwich was cooked to perfection and well seasoned. Chicken cordon bleu sandwich was moist and tender. Salads were ok. A bit hard to find the restaurant, just keep following the arrows!
