J’aime Les Crêpes

I finally got to try this place when I was waiting for the Kingston-Edmonds ferry. When you're used to grabbing something quick and fried, J'aime les Crepes Creperie is an absolute oasis. They have a plethora of savory and sweet crepes to choose from, which are fresh, well-sized, and reasonably prices. The shop is located in sight from the ferry terminal so nervous car drivers (like me) can keep an eye out the back door for the approaching ferry. I can only speak for the black forest ham and swiss, but it was wonderful, as are their shakes. A great, fast treat--far better than getting a snack or dinner on the ferry!
Hmm! God bless the standalone Creperie. Not something we get many of around here. I was able to get a couple chocolate based ones for breakfast while my car was in line for the ferry. I actually favor savory crepes, but I needed the sugar. Delicious.
best crepes ever... just try them

how can a made to order burger be room temperature with cold a bun and hot fries? tasty but funky. everyone working there seemed to be high school age. any leadership around?
LOVE THIS PLACE! We came here exhausted from a trip to the Peninsula and they messed up our order initially. However, they quickly recovered with a complimentary burger as well as the option for complimentary service. And the food was great! Definitely get an order of the onion rings - come hungry! Overall a great food stop and great service.
Neat little place just a bit past the ferry terminal. They make their own veggie burgers, which were really good! Had the gojo burger-- was good, had some spicy kick to it it with jalapeños, and tapatio. Fries are just basic fries, I might get a different side next time.

Smitter’s Jitter Espresso

Reviews:
Smitter's Jitters Espresso is well-known among the locals here in Kingston. I actually live in Indianola, so I usually take the Gunderson cutoff to Poulsbo, but the thought of Smitters Jitters makes me take the long way through Kingston. You can't miss it, it's right at the intersection of Miller Bay Road and SR 104, kittycorner to Albertsons. They use Dillano's coffee and brew it to perfection. My coffee is never burnt tasting, and always made pretty quickly. I've never gotten the wrong drink there and they are happy to add the cream and sugar for you if you wish! Don't forget to start a punchcard, cuz you'll be back!

My family and I had very enjoyable dinner after our ferry ride back. We ate outside on their deck and watched the sun descend over the tops of the trees. Our waiter James was extremely kind and did an excellent job of taking care of us. The 104 Burger was excellent with a generous, and very tasty grass-fed meat patty. I chose bleu cheese, which made it even more enjoyable. My wife had the meatloaf and it proved that meatloaf is often given a bad rap. It was quite good and you'll have some to take home as there is a generous portion served. This was our first time at Main Street Ale House and we were very happy with our last minute choice for dinner. We will be back.
A very nice place to grab a quick bite while you wait for the Kingston ferry. After a productive day trip to the Olympic national park I was tired and hungry but still had not had the opportunity to have some of the awesome Dungeness crab. The place looked nice and very presentable, a place where I would not mind sitting and having something to eat if I have the time. The service was prompt and friendly. The Dungeness crab melt was also very tasty. I loved it. It was well seasoned and the crab tested very fresh. This place also has a bar and we grabbed a quick drink on our way out. Overall, a nice, friendly place with good food.
Really disappointing experience. They were out of the beer (Valholl Golden Warrior), appetizer (steamers), and entree (22 oz ribeye) that I wanted to order. It was not a particularly busy night (Labor Day Monday), but it took over 45 minutes for our family of four to be served. Adding insult to injury, before we even got our food one of the servers asked if we had finished eating. Once we got the food, it was just ok. The best part of the fish and chips was the coleslaw. Our waitress apologized, but we won't be coming back.

Axe Handle Cafe

Reviews:
I have been to the Axe Handle Cafe 3 times over the past year. This first time was shortly after they opened and I went with my wife for breakfast. The second I went with a friend for lunch and the third I went with another friend for dinner. I'm a VERY picky reviewer and I rarely give 5 stars for something because according to Yelp, 5 stars means that it's "as good as it gets". 4 stars means I'm a fan, 3 stars is "ok", 2 stars is "I've had better" and 1 star pretty much means "get me out of here!" So I follow that, strictly. On my first visit, I liked what they did with the space, it was something I had wanted to do for years but never got around to it. Removing the false ceiling, exposing the ducts and painting the ceiling a dark color to give you that large space feel while keeping eye levels down is perfect. Well done. However, on that first visit, it appeared nothing had been done about the acoustics problem this removal creates. My wife and I heard everything that was going on, the private conversations across the room, the dishes being washed, the clatter of employees moving around. It was loud. So loud that my wife and I couldn't hold a conversation as I'm deaf in one ear and have lost 50% of my hearing in the other. On their menu at the time, they had a frittata, but the description called it a crustless quiche. Okay? Frittata and quiche are two different things, with two different methods of preparation, which is it? I couldn't get a straight answer from my server, so I ordered The Axe. I'm a sucker for good biscuits and gravy with eggs. Unfortunately, this was just average for me. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't great. The biscuit left some room for desire on my palate, it was huge and flavorless. My eggs, I asked for poached. What I received, were not poached eggs. They appeared to be prepared in either a consumer level "egg poacher", which is a silicone material that you crack and egg into and float around in boiling water, or they were put into a ladle and floated in water, or they were prepared in some sort of countertop device. That's just speculation for how it was done, but I do know they were not poached using any traditional method. The entire egg was present, the yolk was visible surrounded by a large ring of egg white, almost like it was a sunnyside up, but not. A traditional poached egg is going to look like a mozzarella ball, these weren't even close. The gravy was run of the mill for me, nothing stood out and it was severely under seasoned. My coffee was tasty. Our service was mediocre, we had to call the wait person over several times to get refills on water. The local decor and focus on old Kingston is cute, I like what they are going for. My second visit for lunch, they had done some work to fix the acoustics it seems, it wasn't as noisy and much easier to hold a conversation. My friend and I split a grilled portobello sandwich. It didn't blow my socks off. The mushrooms were okay, but the mozarella was... weird and the bread was undesirable. My friend and I are both chefs she's classically trained and I'm more... out there, however we both had the same opinion about the sandwich. Could have been better. We just had water this time around and again we had to ask repeatedly for refills and it took 35 minutes to get our check after we had finished out meal. I'm not sure if they were just leaving us alone to chat or if we were being ignored on purpose. It wasn't that busy and we both made eye contact with our server several times giving the clue that we were ready to go, clear our plates and give us a check, but he looked as if he had more important things to do. My third time there with another friend for dinner. Neither of us are sure why restaurants do this, but it's rampant. Maybe we're just picky, but like my poached egg experience, you can't call a Shepherds' Pie a Shepherds' Pie if you're using beef. That's a Cottage Pie. Shepherds' don't herd cattle. Call things what they really are. Just a pet peeve of mine. Frittata is frittata, quiche is quiche. We ordered their Jerk Chicken and shared it. There's not a lot I can say about it. It was not an experience that was memorable. Bland, underseasoned, dry, plated poorly. Service was a bit better this time though. Overall, the place is okay. For the price, it should be better than okay. Service is not where I'd like to see it when I'm paying for a meal. The atmosphere is cute, acoustics still needs some work, and it lacks any intimate feel to it, no sense of privacy. I've had better, I've gone 3 times and it was consistent, but it was consistently mediocre. They also blocked my friend from being able to make comments on their Facebook page after she left her opinion, it wasn't bashing, it was an honest review with suggestions. They blocked her for it. Not cool. I wish them success, they clearly have some hard core fans, and I'd love to be one of them... But I'm not.
Great food in a charming atmosphere. It's only been open two weeks, so there are some kinks to work out, but I'm sure that'll improve with time. Our dinner was very tasty. Be sure to save room for dessert. We'll definitely be back!
