“LOCAL's spot. Featured in People Magazine, they didn't need any help packing this place out! You can dine in a converted VW bus or just enjoy the bustle of the cozy interior. If there's a wait, pick out your own mug and enjoy a cuppa while you wait. The food is very reasonably priced and made with love. The owners are amazing people...”

“We are SO LUCKY to have this place in our town. Sabateur sources locally and organically whenever possible. Also, YUM! Not to be missed on the weekends when they have ALL the things... (more limited selection and sporadic hours during the week) Get here before 10 am for full selection on weekend mornings. Now serving awesome pizza from 5-8 pm weekdays! Committed to quality. Love this place the most!”

“By now, you are probably learning that I like to drink coffee and eat good food, especially if I can do it with an amazing view! This all-ages pub is a gem! Located in Annapolis right around the corner from downtown Port Orchard, this pub has great food, coffee and a full spirits bar with local brews and distilled liquors. But the best part about this pub, is you can sit on the deck (practically hanging over the bay) and enjoy a panoramic view of Sinclair Inlet. In the summer, we've even seen a pod of transient Orcas playing in the bay in front of the pub. Just amazing! Side note, I also love stopping here on my "long run" days when I do a 6- or 10-mile jog along Bay street. More on that later! ”

Café
“Great local coffee shop that has a strong mission to provide opportunities to disenfranchised youth. The barista's are the friendliest in town. The shop has comfy spaces and tables to get your internet on! But it also has my favorite wrap, "the horsebite". Food is fast, fresh and delicious and the soups are home-made and to die-for! And it is located conveniently downtown on the water front if you want to peruse the antique and shabby-chic shops or jump on the Carlisle (foot ferry) for $2 to jet across the bay to visit Bremerton. ”

“Walking distance from our airbnb unit, this hidden gem tucked away under a building in an alley-like-street not only serves great coffee but tasty breakfast sandwiches too. Being right next to the State Gate entrance to PSNS, this place usually has a line out the door but you can avoid the rush by going between 7am-9am or noon-4pm!”
