You probably already know this but if not – Cynthia (of XYZ Movement Arts, Red Checkered Picnics and “Cynthia’s Of Course”) has opened a new restaurant at 65 Nichols across from the Barking Bird. It’s called… “Cynthia’s“!

Breakfast and lunch are the offerings for now, with open hours from 7 am (8 am on Sundays) to 3 pm, Thursdays through Mondays (with brunch all day Sunday). And breakfast is a “grown-up breakfast, totally different from anything else around here” she adds, “not ‘grown-up’ as opposed to ‘children’ but more like an ‘evolved’ and ‘changed‘” style of cooking.

Some of the offerings include – mash browns – roasted red potatoes with garlic, mashed and served hot, breakfast salad – fresh greens with fruit and a light dressing or fresh fruit are your choices with the Avocado Boat breakfast (baked avocado with poached eggs – add crumbled bacon or smoked salmon to the mix for an extra taste sensation.

She also offers Swedish Pancakes from a family recipe, Gluten Free Pancakes, French Toast and Dutch Babies (crepe/pancake cooked in an individual skillets).  Lunch offerings include her famous “only at the Fair” Ahi Burger as well as a Lamb Fusion Panini.  Daily specials are offered and homemade soups and pies.

She only serves cage-free eggs and as much local and organically produced foods as possible. “I won’t serve people anything that I wouldn’t serve my family or friends“.

There is a walk-in full service dining room, and a separate “grab and go” area for when you’re in a hurry. And reservations are accepted for parties of 6 or more.

  2. I have been a fan of Cynthia’s food since her early days at the Lincoln Park Deli in West Seattle. She perfected her imaginative brand on Maui and folded it all into Friday Harbor. Now with her newest venture, Cynthia’s Restaurant, folks can sit down and enjoy her creative bent on wholesome food and treats. We look forward to visiting FH soon for a first hand look at her new place. I am sure we will be delighted. Cheers!
