Tucked away in a bright yellow building on the Silverdale waterfront is one of the best local food joints in Kitsap County. Monica’s Waterfront Bakery and Cafe lists the farms providing the day’s ingredients, and they’re all farms that provide my food too: Pheasant Fields Farm, Gregory Farm, All One Family Farm, and more!
Monica’s wonderful menus include salads, sandwiches and soups. Recently I had a butternut squash soup that was as good as any I’ve ever tasted. The bakery provides fresh baked bread, pastries and pies.
It’s great food with a great ethic. Monica’s not only supports local farmers, sourcing seasonal and organic-where-possible ingredients, but is a CarbonFree Partner, offsetting the cafe’s carbon footprint.
The Cafe is open 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays, and is closed Sundays and holidays.
