The town of La Conner, Washington

We were surprised to find the town of La Conner quaint and teaming with a diverse assortment of restaurants and shops. The town is situated along the Swinomish Channel near Whidbey Island, and we strolled and window shopped for several hours. This, of course, made us very hungry!

Lunch was at the Calico Cupboard restaurant ~ lunch for Brad meant a giant cinnamon roll. Direct quote from Brad: “This is one of the best, if not the best cinnamon roles I’ve ever had.” So if you’re in La Conner, and like cinnamon rolls, The Calico Cupboard is obviously the place to go. As far as “real” lunch food, it was all good, the staff friendly, and reasonable priced.

Dinner was a local favorite – every Wednesday the Kiwanis offer (for $10 per person) ribs (pork or beef) or salmon, Cole slaw, baked beans, corn bread and a drink at CafĂ© at the Market. We sat outside on the patio, overlooking the channel, and while we watched a sea lion play, we ate a great meal.

Now we’re full!
