Favorite chowhound stops on the Skagit tulip trail?

MsMaryMc | Feb 18, 201503:04 PM

Since it looks like spring flowers may be early this year (my daffodils are already blooming!!), I'm already thinking about a trip up to see the Skagit Valley tulips. What are your favorite food-related stops along the way, up in that area? Restaurants, shops, farm stands, cheese-makers, whatever. Even if it's not really their best season--that's always a nice Sunday drive, and I keep a list on my phone of places I want to try.

I'll go first:

It's been a few years, but Calico Cupboard in Mount Vernon has always been a favorite. They do wonderful baked goodies, soups and sandwiches--breakfast and lunch only. They also have locations in Anacortes and La Conner.

I haven't been to the Rhododendron Cafe in Bow since the new owners came in, but the menu still looks great. Can anybody report on them more recently?

On my list to try:

Breadfarm in Bow--an old-school bakery
Gothberg Farms in Bow--farmstead goat cheeses
