Start out the day at Oak Table Café (292 W. Bell, 360/683-2179, 7 a.m.–3 p.m. daily) where the breakfasts are filling and delicious (try the wonderful soufflé-style baked apple pancakes).
Housed in a historic white church, Jean’s Deli (134 S. 2nd Ave., 360/683-6727, 7 a.m.–3 p.m. Mon.–Fri. year-round, also 10:30 a.m.–3 p.m. Sat. in summer) is the best lunch spot in town, with delightful pastries, sandwiches, and espresso.
The Three Crabs (Three Crabs Rd., 360/683-4264, 11:30 a.m.–7 p.m. Sun.–Thurs., 11:30 a.m.–8 p.m. Fri.–Sat.) has served Dungeness crab and other local seafood specialties for nearly 30 years at its waterfront location.
