The Old Town Cafe Bellingham

Hungry? Don’t know where to go? Old reliable is in downtown Bellingham and its name is Old Town Cafe.

Ever watch a debate team (NO, not presidential) fire pro and con stats? When Wendy and I are hungry and we are trying to decide where to eat, our exchange resembles just that. We are very serious about eating. She’s trying vegan with great results (feeling healthy and energized). So I copy a little – imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

The Kindergarteners are in school! What’s for brunch?! Eggs, homefries (slim red potato wedges spiced just right), black beans, tortillas are too good. Breakfast is served all day; lunch begins at 11am and the menu is extensive, varied. Many of the ingredients are organic and local. The atmosphere is very friendly and the decor polished painted clean old. Most times there’s a line, but it’s always worth the wait; just figure it into your time schedule. You will be rewarded.

PS You MUST try the jam on the table.

Q: What is it that makes people want to work the kitchen in this restaurant? It’s a fascinating watch – get a table with a kitchen view sometime.

316 W Holly St Bellingham
