Orcas Island: Cafe Olga
I just got back from a weekend on Orcas Island in the San Juans. It’s a gorgeous place, although it rained a bit much even for me. Still, I managed to get out and about and enjoy much of the island.
On my first day there I had lunch at Cafe Olga a little place co-located with the Orcas Island Artworks, an artist co-op, in the little hamlet of Olga. Located in a historic strawberry packing building it’s a charming place with great food. The regular menu is small but creative and the numerous daily specials add seasonal variety.
For my lunch I had the special Crab Quesadilla. It was packed with amazingly fresh, sweet Dungeness crab, Monterey Jack cheese (a bit too much) and mild green chilies. Really quite wonderful.
