Upon the recommendation of a friend, we took the ferry to out to Orcas Island for the day. I wish that we had more time on the island to explore, but we’ll go back another time!

We did find a great spot to stop for lunch. Cafe Olga looks like an old barn. A relaxed atmosphere, great staff and fabulous food. I had an amazing Thai pasta dish with spicy prawns. Divine!

The hubby enjoyed a turkey sandwich that was an explosion of flavor with every bite. He’ll be talking about that sandwich for a long time, I bet.

For a treat to-go, the hubby grabbed a cinnamon roll. Enormous, cinnamony goodness. Bring on the sugar coma!

The restaurant was full of local art work, trinkets, jewelry, ceramics and more to buy.  Complete with a nice detail of lavender at the door. Quaint. Charming. Highly recommend to check it out if you’re going to Orcas Island. I’ll be back…
