Locals will be excited to learn that the new café will be carrying local farm-fresh produce and dairy, and will offer delectable hand-crafted sandwiches. Everyone will enjoy fresh-baked goods like cheesecake, pies, and fresh bread.

Perhaps you’re looking to have a picnic in scenic Port Gamble. They have you covered with picnic baskets designed for two.

If you’re not hungry by now, Butcher & Baker Provisions will also be offering beer, wine, cheese, hand-crafted sauces, spices, and rubs to go along with their locally sourced, farm-raised meats like steaks, roasts, kebabs, and cured meats.
