Lunch at the Little Red Caboose Cafe

My partner's daughter that lives in Japan knew we were going to be in the Blaine area right after Father's day so she sent us a gift certificate to the Little Red Caboose Cafe and told us she thought we might enjoy it.

Great place for a quick breakfast or lunch. Tasty sandwiches and a variety of teas and coffees. It's right on Peace Portal so it's convenient for "downtown Blaine" or if you walk up from Blaine Marina.

The Little Red Caboose is wonderful. Great little space on the waterfront with excellent coffee and housemade soup, sandwiches and baked goods. Lovely staff / owners who are welcoming and helpful.

We were Driving through Blaine and looking for somewhere to stop for lunch when we saw this cute red caboose. There's a nice patio overlooking the water so we sat outside and ordered lunch. The clam chowder was very good, the pork sliders were delicious. It was a very nice spot on a sunny afternoon. Everyone there was super helpful... More

We just wanted a bite to eat for lunch and this place looked interesting. It was. Neat atmosphere. Waterfront dining. Double cheese grilled sandwich tasted good. Limited menu, but enough to choose from. Best on sunny day.

And I do mean charming. It's a lovely little red caboose--the real thing!--perched atop a bluff that looks down on picturesque Blaine Harbor. Fantastic views. The menu is mostly soup and sandwiches--clever, inspired little gourmet combinations and tasty soups. There are only a few tables inside but on a warm day it's a pleasure to eat at one of the...

I live in Birch Bay but I come to Blaine pretty frequently. But I had never visited this place. I visited for the first time on Monday. It was pretty cold inside but they had a heater on and it eventually warmed up a bit. The place is tiny, like a caboose; three small tables inside. I had the grilled... More

We were staying in Birch Bay and went here based on the reviews. We were not disappointed. It was the best meal we had in the area. We sat on the porch out back and my 5 year old loved watching the boats launch at the boat ramp. The food was good (mostly sandwiches) and the service was excellent. We... More

Easily reached from the freeway, down the main drag, this little shop offered just the right refreshment after negotiating the border. Tasty sandwich, decent coffee, friendly service and a nice little covered porch to view the Drayton Bay. And, it looks like its applying for a beer and wine license. Careful though when you drive through town if you tend... More
