This has more than your average breakfast. First your hit with a wide array of fresh baked goods that are sure to make your mouth water. The breakfast menu has unique and healthy appeal. I am always cautious of Brussel sprouts due to the fact they most often are over cooked and bitter but their hash was amazing. We were... More

We dropped in for lunch and very unimpressed with our lunches. I had the fish tacos and she a sandwich. Very average at best. The pastry though was the best I've had. The service is a bit slow but friendly and helpful.

The food was very good. We had salads and soups. The place is very noisy and you would not want to have anyone with hearing aids with you, or someone hard of hearing. The atmosphere is very rough and homey.

My in-laws have been going to this cafe for years and I had the privilege of joining them after a family wedding. Great breakfast and good service. Would definitely eat here again.

We've been here a couple of times over the past year. I always get the chicken fried steak. Sooo yummy. Very cozy cafe with lots of cool stuff on the walls. Great food for fuel to go shopping!!

We stopped by Calico Cupboard about a year ago on our way to Seattle based on the rave reviews we’ve seen on Trip Advisor. It was around brunch-time on a weekend, so the restaurant was busy and we were told there was going to be a bit of a wait. We therefore opted to do a takeout order of one... More

My husband and I stopped at the Calico Cupboard on our way up to Canada. When we lived in the area, it used to be one of our go-to places. It was very busy but we actually got seated fairly quickly but then waited for about 1/2 to get waited on - not our waiter's fault because he was slammed... More
