Great grilled sandwiches

My husband and I were hungry and just needed some sustenance at lunchtime the other day, but this café gave us one of the best meals we've had in awhile! The grilled club sandwich on herb focaccia was just terrific, as was the seafood gumbo. Plus the staff were very friendly and the place seemed... read more

While going through Bellingham we stopped for a quick lunch. Great selection of sandwiches, wraps and salads with a friendly staff and a warm atmosphere. Despite a busy time our food arrived quickly and was awesome. Plus we picked up a loaf of bread to go.

Amazing Eggs Benedict!! The salmon was great! Variety of benedict choices. They make their own English muffins every day. Delicious!

Whenever we are in Bellingham, we go here for either Breakfast or Lunch (and sometimes both). Lovely selection of sandwiches, omelettes, breads, and soups. Always busy, but great staff.

While visiting friends in Bellingham recently, we all walked down the beach walkways and to breakfast at Avenue Bread and Café. It was a small place but very popular. Once I tried the breakfast I knew why. The know how to make your typical egg mc muffin or croissant far from typical. Completely accidentally I ordered my sandwich as the... More

There is nothing here that tastes like it's processed or out of a can. Everything I've tried, scones, sandwiches, soups all taste home made. Service is good and we were very pleased with everything. Definitely will be back for lunch and I'd love to try the breakfast.

A little pricey for counter service, but the food claims to be fresh local organic etc and certainly tasted good. About twice what you'd pay at subway but better food certainly. Lots of options to choose from and decor was nice, not noisy. Would probably go back.
