We stopped here for breakfast on the way to the ferry in Anacortes. What a delightful place! The food is plentiful and very good, somewhat typical but not pedestrian breakfast fare. When we arrived at this relatively small place the waitress (owner?) told a group of men to leave. She said,"That's okay, they've been here since daylight," and they probably... More

Had a Saturday morning breakfast around 10:30 am in January. Small but cozy diner type interior with local historical photos on the walls. Nice change from impersonal chain restaurants. Young servers appeare to be local high school or college students: friendly and always kept coffee warm and filled. Order taken promptly. Food was very good, prepared as ordered, generous portions,... More

Stopped for lunch and coffee. We shared some chicken strips and onion rings. The fries were great and lots of them. Onion rings were delicious and the chicken strips were very good. We could not eat it all even between 2 people. Definitely a place to stop at and we will be back.

Happened upon this little treasure while driving from Bellingham to Whidbey Island. Feels like a step back in time, in the good sense! Friendly, clean, good vibe.

We stopped for lunch at the only restaurant that was open at the time and saw just one other car car parked there when we pulled in. We chose a table outside as it was a nice day and enjoyed the view of Edison across the nice flower boxes. All of a sudden more people showed up and it appears... More

We were regulars at the Edison Cafe since we are locals until it was sold, the food USED TO BE amazing along with the service. We've gone back a couple times to try out the new owner, dissapointed everytime. Food comes cold and tastes like Pam cooking spray. The service was crummy and since its a small place (seats less...

Used to be amazing, but our last visit was a huge let down. Food for four took 40 minutes, even in an almost empty restaurant, and even then one meal wasn't ready and took another 5 minutes. Service was dismal. No smiles, no apology for the long wait or the food not coming up together, no quality check. Food was... More
