Orcas Island Restaurants
Whatever your mood, you’re sure to find an Orcas Island restaurant prepared to please. From pastries hot from the oven with fresh-brewed gourmet coffee, to innovative suppers of local ingredients from both land and sea, you will be pleasantly surprised by both the variety and quality of dining choices offered on Orcas Island.
For French-inspired Northwest cuisine (lots of delicious sauces and cheeses), try breakfast, lunch or dinner overlooking the water at the New Leaf Café at the Outlook Inn in Eastsound. A high-energy restaurant that manages to be warm and cozy at the same time, the cafe serves cocktails that alone are worth the visit, and even infuses some of its own spirits, such as jalapeño and pineapple-infused tequila.
Just a mile outside Eastsound is the Inn at Ship Bay Restaurant, surrounded by heirloom orchards and perched high on a bluff with unobstructed views over Ship Bay. Here you’ll find casual fine dining with a European feel, in the restaurant or bar or on the waterview patio -- where the imaginative menu changes daily. Unobtrusive service, fresh local seafood, meats, and produce, with breads, pastries and desserts made onsite.
Dine indoors at Eastsound’s renowned restaurant, Allium -- cozy, inviting, romantic -- or on the deck overlooking the bay (they’ll supply a fleece blanket if you want one). Either way, you’ll savor simple, fresh Pacific Northwest flavors sourced from local farms, creatively prepared, beautifully presented, and often with a French or Asian twist. All this in a casually comfortable atmosphere. Enthusiastic reviews mean you’ll need reservations. Also offered are weekend brunches, which begin with a basket of warm, freshly baked mini-pastries.

From the popular cafes that dot the village of Eastsound, to the affordable and picturesque restaurants throughout the island offering light, seasonal and local foods, there is a variety of options for your casual dining experience.
