Cute

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

I found this place while researching where my husband and I could eat in Blaine. It was so fun and everything was very good. They make their own chai tea blend and it was AMAZING. Highly recommend if you are ever traveling thru Blaine to stop in.

My husband I were so disappointed when we went to have breakfast and found the red caboose all locked up. Needless to say we were not happy as we were hungry and needed coffee.

We showed up for lunch. It had a nice "now open" sign out front but closed with no explanation. We went across the street to the visitor center to ask why and they wanted to know that too. Apparently, it hasn't been open for weeks. The kids were bummed! We ended up at Subway down the street. Bummer!!

I've been to the cafe when there were different owners. They were really nice but the new owner has shown that she has a bright future running this cute little caboose. We showed up at 2:55 PM on Saturday, not knowing the place closed at 3 PM. We would have turned around and left but Patty said she would try... More
