Calico Cupboard Review
A local favorite, this chain of storefront bakeries turn out some of the best pastries in Skagit County (there are branches in Anacortes and Mt. Vernon, too). Lunches focus on fresh and creative salads, soups, and burgers; while huge and hearty breakfasts may leave you with little need for lunch—the roasted butternut-squash hash and migas are a couple of favorites. Buy goodies at the take-out counter for a picnic adventure.
