5 Best Desserts in Friday Harbor

Calories don’t count while on vacation right? So go ahead and indulge your sweet tooth while during your getaway to our scenic San Juan Island with these five delicious island made desserts!

  1. Sticky Toffee Pudding from Cask and Schooner Public House

This cozy, English pub style restaurant on the corner of First and Spring Street, just blocks from the ferry landing offers one of the gooiest, yummiest, melt in your mouth desserts in town! In sticking with their British pub menu, this traditional dessert is made with moist sponge cake sweetened with dates and drizzled with warm toffee syrup. A big scoop of vanilla ice cream tops off the whole thing and adds a bit of creaminess.

Check out the rest of their menu at www.caskandschooner.com

  1. Key Lime Pie from Bakery San Juan

Bakery San Juan has been an island favorite since opening its doors in 2008. Offering freshly baked breads, pizzas (by the slice or pie), pastries and desserts they truly have carbs for everyone!

One of their most delicious and surprising desserts is their homemade Key Lime Pie and tartlets. Made with the traditional graham cracker crust these pies are the perfect mix of tangy, sweet and savory.

Try hitting up the bakery during it’s daytime hours, at the San Juan Island Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings or check at Friday Harbor’s local grocery stores for their pizzas and pastries.

  1. Felicitations Eclairs

Felicitation’s chocolate Eclairs are one of the island’s most delicious hidden gems!

Since opening her doors in 1998, Felicity Milne has been making her decadent chocolate eclairs on a regular basis. Making everything from scratch, including the custard filling using real vanilla bean infused cream, these little puff pastries are then dipped in semi-sweet chocolate ganache.

These days Felicity works out of a small, tucked away shop in the Surina Business Park, about ten blocks from the ferry landing and offers her Eclairs and other goodies by order or in weekly batches. Check out the goodness at www.cakesbyfelicitations.com.

  1. Dandelion Root Ice Cream Sundae at Duck Soup Inn

Sounds strange right? Dandelion Root Ice Cream? Be brave and you won’t be disappointed! Duck Soup Inn is an island tradition as one of Friday Harbor’s best restaurants for more than 20 years. They’ve undergone some changes over the past few years (and are looking better than ever thanks to a recent remodel!) but one thing that hasn’t changed is the deliciousness of this unique dessert. Tasting a little like a rich coffee ice cream and made completely in house this frozen treat is created with real dandelion roots soaked and steeped into a tea and then turned into this delicious, unique dessert.

  1. Homemade Ice cream from Coho Restaurant

You can’t go wrong with anything on Coho Restaurant’s fresh, farm-to-table menu, but their desserts are exceptionally yummy.

Made from scratch daily, using the best local ingredients Coho Restaurant’s desserts are the perfect end to a delicious meal. Whether it’s their homemade ice creams and sorbets, Orange Valencia Cake, Crème Brulee or Chocolate Espresso Cake, rich cream and farm-fresh eggs help Coho Restaurant’s desserts stand above the competition.

Coffee lovers be sure to try the Affogato al Café. Expect a fresh pulled shot of Espresso, a liquor of your choice and a scoop of Coho’s homemade ice cream.
