All of us loved the space, the food, and the staff! Everything was delicious! No complaints! And it was reasonably priced. I would definitely come back here again!

The best chicken sandwich ever - they make the tarragon aioli daily. Friendly and attentive staff.

We’ve eaten both lunch and brunch here and have been impressed with the ingenuity of the offerings and the increased speed of service. Service is friendly and knowledgeable.

This place is definitely worth a stop if you come to see the art in the coop gallery that shares the building or if you find yourself in Olga and are hungry.

The servers at Catkin were very kind, attentive and even smiled at us. The food was also quite delicious. The atmosphere is cozy and bright with beautiful artwork and the prices are very reasonable for the island.

The food was great and service very good as well. The girls had home made biscuits and jam that they kept raving about. My niece is finicky about food and at one point during the meal she said “let’s come back here soon.” I had a chicken salad sandwich on home made sourdough bread and I could eat that about every day.
