Homer, Alaska, also know as the “Cosmic Hamlet by the Sea,” has many attractions including some really fine food. On of the very best Homer chefs is Michael Hiller at the Mermaid Café. The cuisine ranges from the basics made with fresh, local ingredients to the innovative and sophisticated. For breakfast feast on Mermaid eggs – 2 poached eggs on English muffin with spinach, tomato, Canadian bacon and mustard tarragon cream sauce – sooo good! Lunch selections included fresh salads and a selection of yummy sandwiches and some of the best corn chowder I’ve ever eaten. Beef brisket with homemade BBQ sauce and fresh rock fish with local greens were lunch specials when I visited. Depending on the season and availability, dinners might include fresh King Salmon, Alaskan grown beef tenderloin and/or a Pad Thai Curry. The selections of wine, mead and beer are hand picked. If great food and drink aren't enough in this casual but sophisticated restaurant, there is an adjacent bookshop good for browsing.
