“Quite Good - Both Atmosphere & Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

The Firehall Cafe is worth checking out. There is seating both indoor and out. Diners can choose to sit at sidewalk tables out front, or on the balcony in the back, or at tables or the bar inside. The cafe's food line consists of a variety of paninis and wraps with some appetizer plates as well. Twice, I've ordered the Caesar Chicken wrap in a spinach tortilla. It's very flavorful and fat. You won't be left hungry after eating this. My wife really enjoyed the Hummus plate.

Thursday and Saturday are music days in the evening, with live piano on Thursdays and local acoustic artists on weekends, so that's a great time to visit.

The cafe serves local brews from Kulshan Brewery on tap, bottled beers and wine.

“Great place for a snack”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

Firehall Cafe is new to Lynden. Sean and his colleagues have put together an excellent assortment of snackies including paninis, wraps, plates, and pastries. I had a panini, and while very tasty, consider it a light snack - you want more. Another time I had the Caesar Chicken wrap in a spinach tortilla. The wraps are large and would make a light supper all by themselves. Excellent, and I didn't go away hungry. Firehall Cafe also has beers on tap - I especially like the Transporter, a dark ale. Bottled beers and wine are also available. Thurday evening is piano lounge time, and a variety of performers come by to entertain. I'm pleased to report that the house gets full, and that means success for this endeavor. Diners can choose to eat at sidewalk tables, inside the Jansen Art Center Firehall Cafe, or on a balcony overlooking the Cascade Mountains and the Nooksack River Valley.
