Although we've been to Port Townsend many times, this was the first time at this cafe. We will definitely return. The oven pancake is delicious. Service was friendly at it has a very pleasant atmosphere.

5 of us had dinner, once again, here- two wonderful salmon salads, one dish of short ribs and a delicous-looking burger. I personally had a mezze dish with salmon that was both beautifully plated and delicious. We saw the chicken going past us to another table, which also looked very appetizing.

This restaurant/ bakery is a great place for brunch or for a special sweet bakery treat. It is particularly popular on the weekends. Unfortunately I have found it understaffed, so service is slow. Because their espresso drinks are made in the bakery portion of the establishment for both the restaurant portion and for the bakery customers,the wait can be interminably... More

We had delicious lunch here during a brunch time - all food fresh and well handled. Service friendly and menu has good selection. It is one of the better places in Port Townsend for all meals and the coffee shop is good too with good teas and coffees and yummy baked goods or grab one of prepared sandwiches if town... More

We dine out often but rarely find a place like the Sweet Laurette. Their Tuscan omelet/scramble with sweet apples, sausage, onions and mushrooms was excellent. Besides that winner dish, they made me a triple 12 oz., heavy cream latte in a small soup bowl, first ever, and it was just plain awesome!! We will make sure to visit this very... More

If your walking from downtown or through uptown, this is a great special place to enjoy a cup of coffee and/or a very tasty breakfast.

This spot looked good we thought as we walked around town and we knew we would be back. We had a lovely breakfast/lunch there on Saturday when they seem to have brunch and specials for most of the day and Sunday, too. I chose one of their regular menu salads and chose to have the salmon with it - it... More

The three of us met at Sweet Laurettes the first week in February, for a special lunch. my frittata was horrible, cold and rubbery. We were told that there wasn't any kitchen staff that everything was being heated in the oven. If there isn't any kitchen staff close the restaurant down. The damage is done

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
