Owner Jim Goodall opened Langley Kitchen in November 2020 after running a restaurant in Seattle. He thought Langley needed more baked goods, especially cookies and set up shop there during the pandemic. He was ready for portable food with the inside having no tables just the kitchen and items for sale. You line up and order at the counter, then they call your name out a back window where there is a lovely patio to eat on. The metal tables are surrounded by red Japanese maple trees with overhead heaters for when needed. They offer a variety of salads, baked goods and sandwiches for both breakfast and lunch. Their logo features an owl with a quiver holding a spoon and fork, rather than arrows. We tried 2 of their sandwiches a bar cookie and it was all delicious. This place should be on your list if you’re on Whidbey Island.
The Blatt Sandwich contained crispy bacon, lettuce, avocado, turkey, tomato and basil aioli. it came on house-made focaccia bread with Tim’s Chips. The thickly sliced focaccia was stuffed with red tomatoes, ripe avocado, crisp bacon and moist turkey. It was a delicious combination.
The Pulled Pork sandwich was made with Carlton Farms pork shoulder, maple bacon BBQ sauce, crunchy Asian slaw and basil aioli on a toasted ciabatta bun. It came with a bag of Tim’s Chips. The incredibly tasty and tender pork was sweetened by the sauce and punctuated by the crunchy cabbage. My only problem was that the ingredients kept falling out the non-biting end. It was delicious and generously packed with tasty stuff.
The Brown Butter Blondie bar was really good. Buttery-rich goodness was accented with toasted pecans. The crisp exterior blended perfectly with the fudgy inside. I admit we started sampling it before our sandwiches arrived and couldn’t stop eating it. I’d definitely try their baked goods if you can.
