292 W Bell St | 3rd & Bell St | oaktablecafe.com
The Oak Table Cafe is the best breakfast or brunch you can find anywhere in the area. And whether you are at the national park on a trip with your romantic partner, or visiting with the whole family, then you are definitely going to want a delicious and nutritious breakfast one day. After all, on a day of hiking and adventuring you need to fill up the tank in the morning to make sure you have the energy to make it through the whole day.
Not only are you going to find a delicious breakfast you are going to find it served in a very quaint and relaxing atmosphere. One that will set the tempo for the whole day. Literally the worst thing that I have to say about the restaurant is that it is busy. But I mean when you combine excellent food, excellent ambiance, and excellent service together in one place you can’t expect it to not be busy. And if you don’t believe me, just check out one of the countless five star reviews that their customers have left behind.
“This is the best breakfast restaurant I have ever been. Very clean, organized and you can feel that everything is done with love from the setting of the table to the presentation of the food. Fresh juice, eggs, the French toast exquisite. A must if you are in the area” - Yelp Review
The Oak Table Cafe doesn’t offer GiftYa digital gift cards just yet, but check back soon because we are always adding restaurants near and attractions in Olympic National Park!
113 W 1st St | Port Angeles | nextdoorgastropub.com/
If you are looking for something other than breakfast while you are adventuring around Olympic National Park then my number one recommendation for you is the Next Door Gastropub. They serve an excellent lunch and dinner menu made up of fresh local ingredients. Not only do you get an excellent meal when you stop at Next Door Gastropub, you also get to support local businesses and local farms. So not only do you get a great meal, you also get to feel good about where your dollar bill went.
You can get everything from burgers, to crab cakes, to fish tacos when you stop here. So I think they make a good option for anybody who is in a party with a picky eater. They have pretty standard dishes served up with the finest ingredients. So whether you have somebody who refuses to eat fish, or maybe only eats chicken tenders, then you are going to be able to find something on Next Door Gastropub’s menu that will fit the bill for the picky eater with you.
“You're most likely going to wait an hour to be seated. My husband and I think it's worth it.
We have this tradition of camping on the coast and then coming to this restaurant and it's a meal I don't forget. It's hearty- but that's all you want after hiking your ass off.” - Yelp Review
Unfortunately Next Door Gastropub isn’t one of the restaurants near Olympic National Park participating with GiftYa just yet, but check back soon cause they might be any day now.
235471 Hwy 101 W | Port Angeles | grannyscafe.net/
Granny’s Cafe rounds out the top three on my list of the best restaurants you can find around Olympic National Park. Although they serve a breakfast and brunch menu, they also serve a classic cafe menu for lunch. But let’s be honest, the real reason you want to stop into Granny’s Cafe is if you're looking for some dessert or something sweet. If you are around Olympic National Park you absolutely can not beat Granny’s Cafes Blackberry Pie. Locals and travelers alike leave rave reviews about how good it is. And I’m sure you might have had an amazing apple, pumpkin, or cherry pie out and about somewhere that was amazing, but how often do you come across a blackberry pie that people leave rave reviews for? Not very often, so you owe it to yourself if you are at the park for a few days to make this one of your must see stops during your visit.
“Although there is no inside seating - you order inside and take your food to one of several picnic tables outside Ina nice shaded area, the food is very good but very casual. Super friendly staff (it's family-run) and quality ingredients all around. Super busy on weekends at breakfast and lunch when we were there.” - Yelp Review
203 E Front St | Port Angeles | kokopelli-grill.com
If you are looking for something a little more unique for your lunch or dinner then you should give Kokopelli Grill a try. They feature a menu that is heavily seafood inspired but with a Southwestern flair. Which makes sense because they are perfectly positioned to feature fresh local seafood and shellfish. They also support local organic farms in Washington. So this is another instance of where you can spend your dollar and feel good about where it's going.
“The best food! The very best food. Friendly great service from Stacy. Even though they were jammed they were nice.” - Yelp Review
Right now you aren’t able to get a GiftYa digital gift card to Kokopeli Grill but check back because there’s more restaurants near and stores in Olympic National Park added all the time.
128 E Front Street | Port Angeles | spruceportangeles.com/
Spruce is the best place you can stop around the park if you are looking for a great restaurant where you can also get some great drinks. Not only can you expect some high quality traditional American cuisine, you can also expect to be able to pair it with any type of cocktail you can think of. The only thing that brings Spruce down the list, is it feels very much like a location for a romantic dinner, or a business meeting, whereas the other restaurants on the list feel a little more family friendly to me. That isn’t to say that Spruce isn’t welcoming to families, it’s just that I think the menu options are a little more geared towards an adult palette than it is for a young child’s.
“Wasn't expecting much in a small mountain town but this place really hit the spot. My husband and I are visiting from out of town. Good quality food that was so good after a busy day of hiking. Definitely would recommend and go back.” - Yelp Review
You can’t get a digital GiftYa gift card to Spruce at the moment but be sure to check back soon as new restaurants near and locations in Olympic National Park are added all the time!
403 S Lincoln | Port Angeles | subway.com
I mean I imagine I don’t need to explain what Subway is to you. But I like to include it on the list because I always like to feature some food that is quick and convenient. And at least with Subway you get quick and convenient without sacrificing on your ability to eat healthy. So if you are at the park one day and need to grab a quick healthy lunch, it’s hard for me to think of something better than Subway.
“Excellent service. Walked in, order four subs and the two workers (Jet and a woman) worked together and we were out the door in minutes. Friendly and efficient-normally I would review Subway but it was great service.” - Yelp Review
There you are, dear internet traveler! That is a list of the best restaurants you can find around Olympic National Park. I tried to include a little bit of everything on the menu, so whether you're looking for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert, I hope you were able to find something on this list that meets your needs. I always try to feature the most type of menu choices that I can, but I figured around a national park that a lot of you're probably looking for family friendly places to eat. But for those of you looking for a more mature setting I hope Spruce is able to fill the void for you as well.
