We came here for our 31st anniversary. We love to try lots of different things for dinner: sushi, tasting menus, happy hour menus and tapas. This menu did not disappoint. The duck mousse on the everything plate was great! As was the cheese and the...More

The service used to be alright, now it's terrible and the food is cheap and costco quality. SKIP. Unless you want to waste 17$ on 2$ worth of cheese and meats. Head to costco, make your own "fancy plates".

Both of us wanted a very light dinner - and stumbled upon this little gem. For under $25 we were able to have two glasses of wine, and dinner! They offer $10 for a bottle of wine and cheese platter during their happy hour; but...More

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...More

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.

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...More
