The San Juan Islands are an excellent place to experience the variety of foods that the Pacific Northwest offers and Orcas Island features many excellent venues to enjoy. Historic inns and enterprising diners supply a wide variety of breakfast, lunch, and dinner options including fresh seafood, Mexican fare, and oven baked pizza. Waterfront dining is considered a treat by the locals, and reservations are highly recommended at most establishments during the summer months.
The markets and convenience stores supply all the necessities for home cooking, and their delis are the best places for light meals and travel snacks during midday excursions. Organic food stores and the Farmer’s Market provide homegrown produce in Eastsound, and locally grown or caught seafood is often available for purchase from fishermen and shellfish farmers in season. Even a tiny place like Orcas Island can provide enough dining options for the longest of vacations.
