to Enjoy

The Willows Inn

The Willows Inn on Lummi Island has welcomed guests for more than 100 years. Its main dining room has received international media attention and numerous accolades for its unique, prix-fixe menu, featuring ingredients from the nearby waters, forests, and their farm, Loganita. And head chef Blaine Wetzel has garnered many awards since arriving, and has published two books. Dinner is a must do but sometimes requires much advance planning. Breakfast and Lunch are served on the deck and available without reservation.

Sauseburger Stand

The Sauseburger Stand is run by some very friendly Islanders, and besides the food is the highlight of a visit here.

They serve gourmet burgers, sausages, fresh seafood, salads, chili, clam chowder and desserts. Their menu changes weekly and is varied, so has something for everyone.

Beach Store Cafe

The Beach Store Cafe has local owners Tess Winds-Johnson and Jason Brubaker. Tess and Jason are enthusiastic about teaming their many years experience in the restaurant and hospitality industry in a community they each hold very dear. “We have listened and will continue to listen. The menu will reflect the seasonal nature of our location, and we will be making decisions based upon what the community needs and wants.”
