Food was good. Nothing over the top but I enjoyed the smoked salmon linguini. I don't get that too often so I jumped at it and was not disappointed! For the money I wish I had gotten more. My better half had a steak salad and enjoyed it! The front is an old wood decor in a historic building, the... More

Stopped in on a Sunday afternoon. The salmon burger are a fillet served with a Dijon sauce on a bun. The chowder is always fresh and very good. They have great ice tea to top it off. Service was pretty slow, we did a lot of waving to get their attention.

We decided on an evening of Jazz and discovered this old world cafe in Fairhaven, Bellingham. The food was good, the service excellent and the dessert - macadamia mousse was out of this world. We loved the jazz band led by Sonia Lee. We would go back and enjoy this again.

We often stop off in Fairhaven for breakfast or lunch on our way to Seattle. This restaurant has a nice atmosphere and reliably good food for breakfast or lunch. It keeps us coming back.

Sat outside and enjoyed a good Washington wine with excellent Homemade tasting soups. One was tomato and kale the other chicken and avocado, unusual but great. Interesting old building as a bonus.

This is a old-styled bar cafe. There is patio seating on the front sidewalk and in the back alleyway. There are also three levels inside. The ambiance is pleasant. We only stopped in for an afternoon happy hour and did not try very much of their menu. The chowder was creamy. The service was very friendly. Earlier in the morning,... More

Great place to go for breakfast warm and welcoming along with the old Fairhaven charm. Have french toast or pancakes. The lunch is great too.

If you're in Fairhaven, this is a good choice for a meal. But, I wouldn't drive across town to go here. We ate breakfast after getting off the Alaska ferry on a Friday morning. The meal was good and staff attentive.

Banana bread french toast is to die for!!! We have to drive 2 hours for it, but try to do it every few months when we can't stand the cravings any longer. My husband says the eggs Benny is good too. All of them! My only complaint is that they are breakfast time Nazi's. We got stuck in road construction... More

Loved the friendly staff and their warm acceptance of our small adorable (and well behaved) dog on the outside patio. We had their clam chowder which was excellent, served with two pieces of chewy and crusty baguette. Wish we'd had room for dessert as their offerings looked awesome! Prices reasonable, and located on one of Fairhaven's most beautiful streets!
