We saw this place after attending the Saturday farmer's market in downtown Bellingham and vowed to go back and eat there, which we did, a week later. Because we had teenagers with us, we had to eat in the restaurant part, which had great local art on display (great art, and affordable) and nice, old walls and high ceilings. It was the lunch rush, and service to take our order and give us the check was slow though friendly. The food, though a bit pricey, came SUPER fast once we got the order in, and was good.The reuben wasn't the best I've had, but it was a respectable representation on great locally made bread. The pizza the kids shared was freshly made on homemade crust: kids liked, husband did not. The BEST thing, however, is that when the kids went off to explore downtown we got out our laptops, headed to the bar, and worked for a couple of hours while enjoying craft brews and local flavor.
This is a GREAT place to get work done in Bellingham! Not too noisy, laid back vibe, quick service, full menu, and happy hour specials. My husband didn't even drink and enjoyed the vibe, the coffee and sweets he ordered. If you like the option of having a drink while you work, this is the place to go.
