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

It's difficult to make a decision at lunch time as they offer breakfast food all day. So I ordered the brussel sprout hash, it comes with eggs and avocado - sounded intriguing. Well, I would not order it again - it could be improved with garlic, green onions, or some other herbs. My friends were very satisfied with their selections:... More

This restaurant/bakery does an amazing job of cooking and promoting local produce and ingredients. They are always friendly even when busy. Their cream puffs are to die for! I go there frequently but went there yesterday morning and got the brussel sprout hash, delicious!

Super yummy breakfast and reasonably priced. I had the Brussel sprout hash with chili verde, sounds weird but really good. My daughter had the smoked salmon scrambled eggs oh yummy and the boyfriend had the raspberry cinnamon roll, oh so good. I would highly recommend this place for breakfast

I stopped there for a sweet roll and a cup of coffee today. When I looked at the display case of all of their offerings, I first thought 'well Carrot Cake is one of my favorites and theirs looks really good, but those chocolate chip cookies would go great with coffee'. Then on the bottom shelf, in the corner of... More
