“Great spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We were in the mood for a very light dinner. Perfect spot. I had the prawn salad and it was delicious - offered on butter lettuce with their own mix of finely chopped cucumbers, onions, avocados and a little bit of chili peppers. Since we got there early, if we wanted to, we could have slit a whole bottle of wine and cheese tray for just $10. My husband had a panino that was out of this world. Just enough; under $25 total for 2 glasses of wine and dinner!!

“Delicio!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Great food, healthy options, amazing espresso, and awesome atmosphere. Keep up the good work! Bands - music play on weekends and waitress/waitors have personal StYle.

“What a deal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

On an overnight stay to Bellingham my wife and I strolled through downtown Bellingham and stumbled into this place. We fell in love with the price and quality of their drinks. We each had a beer and a glass of wine with a cheese plate for under 30 dollars. The ambiance was business casual, with good music and a lot of cool places to sit. A great view of the street and town with huge windows allowing a lot of light in. Although we didn't stay for dinner, the menu looked great with tapas specials and interesting desserts. We will definitely be stopping by here again the next time in town to listen to some of the live music!

“End of the Year”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

A wonderful place to enjoy wine with cheeses, meats, and some fine good fare. Happy hour, especially the late happy hour, brings some nice specials. It was the perfect place to debrief after watching Lincoln with good wine, good food and a scrumptous dessert.

“Just go...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Don't even think about it; just go to the Temple Bar and have a great experience. We found ourselves in Bellingham two years ago and stumbled upon this place. We were completely blown away by what they can do in a tiny kitchen. We couldn't wait to go back and made a special trip back to Bellingham just to visit the Temple Bar. We weren't unhappy that we did! Same great service, delicious little plates of food, fantastic happy hour deals and unique cocktails. The decor is not fancy. I saw one couple come in, look around and leave. They made a huge mistake in judging the place by the furniture!! The only bad thing was having to leave.
