After hiking the Hoy rain forest, we stopped here to get an order to go. We were the only customers at first but before our order was ready, a second, third, and fourth group arrived. The young lady who was doing it all was so very friendly and kept smiling as more people arrived. On top of how pleasant the... More

My husband and I stopped here for breakfast on the way to the rain forest. It was pretty cold outside, and there is only outside seating. We both had the "Bens Breakfast " which is basically a BLT on a bun. It was good, but kind of expensive. Next visit to this area we will eat in town before coming... More

Small but quaint burger shack in the middle of nowhere on the road to Hoh Rain Forest in the Olympic Nat Park. Food was good.

We stopped for a late lunch after a day of hiking in the Hoh. The food is basic, not attention to detail. (For instance, they didn't heat the buns for our sandwiches.) But, it is MUCH better than fast food and the staff there is friendly and pleasant. It was nice to sit on the porch and watch the rain.

The only issue with the Hard Rain Cafe is its quirky hours. We would have liked to have had breakfast before going into the Hoh Rainforest, but the cafe hadn't opened by 8:30. Instead we went after our hikes. Limited menu, but it does fulfill the need for food after hiking.

This is the only cafe I found on the way to the forest. It is simple, midrange in price and the best place for a warm meal.

We stopped here after a busy day of hiking in the national park, and had a very nice dinner for a great price (under $30 for four of us). Sandwiches are tasty, nothing terribly special or inventive, but filling and fresh. Staff were friendly and welcoming.

We parked our toy hauler travel trailer here, because they had 30 amp power available to some of the sites. RV and tent camping around and behind the café. I only had one sandwich, cold turkey club, but it was packed with fixin's and trimmings, and was great. My wife had coffee and espresso, and it was better than in... More
