Torre Caffe, Bellingham WA

I met Mary at Bloedel Donovan Park today. The kids were playing up a storm, so I struck up a conversation. Of course I asked her what her favorite restaurant in Bellingham was. She said (with a big smile) it was her mother’s kitchen. Hurray – a kindred soul! She said they owned the Torre Caffe on Commercial Street (across from the Mount Baker Theatre). Lo and behold she’s part of a restaurant family. My lucky day!!

It’s a Northern Italian caffe (authentic as in Italians from Genoa, Liguria, Italy own and serve). I asked how it smells when you first walk in (an important factor for my culinary experience). She said it smelled like Italian espresso. YES! She asked if I knew what a cannoli was. Do I know?! I asked her if they had rainbow cookies…sadly not, but we were on the same food page at this point.

Guess where my next food stop is going to be? See you there, Mary!

Caffe Adagio, Railroad Ave. Bellingham

Filed under: Bellingham Restaurants,restaurants — Tags: , , , , — Bellinghamster @ 8:25 pm

My Canadian girlfriend and I love to talk. Morning meetings at Caffe Adagio are our favorite. It’s spacious, friendly and has more variety on its menu than the other coffee house competitor. In addition to Americano’s, they offer fresh baked breakfast treats and Italian-style sandwiches and salads.

The cafe is very kid friendly (see play area) and if you’re so inclined, you can play a tune on the piano. I’ve had to ask my friend to refrain from sharing her talents. I’m not the kind of person who likes attention.
