Local food

There are a couple great places to eat down in Bellingham.  My favorites are:


Casa Que Pasa - 1415 Railroad Avenue  Bellingham, WA 98225

This is a great mexican restaurant that is half way between taqueria and family style.  If you go here, don't miss the potato burrito.  It sounds odd but trust me it's worth the effort.  If you are vegan, they have a burrito called the vegan supercrunch with chips and sprouts in it that's also good.

Community Food Co-op - 1220 North Forest Street  Bellingham, WA 98225

This is a local grocery store that has a fairly extensive deli with many many choices.  Lots of organic and vegetarian stuff here.  They have the best dessert section I've ever seen anywhere.  Pies, bars, cakes, tarts and anything else you can imagine.  There is a fair sized seating area with wifi as well.

More B'ham restaurants

Places that have craft beer and food and are open late:

The Boundary Bay has pizza, local seafood, veggie friendly mexican, gluten-free desserts and tasty beers. Everybody's happy!

The Copper Hog menu is heavy on pork and seafood but has some vegan sides and a couple vegetarian mains. Lots of good sharing plates.

The Chuckanut Brewery and Kitchen focuses on local food and has several options for vegetarians and vegans.

Other places that the internet likes:

Pepper Sisters has southwest food with a northwest twist including loads of vggie/vegan options

Brandywine Kitchen has reasonably priced locavore dishes, with a ton of gluten-free dishes including GF mac & cheese and GF fish & chips

D'Anna's Cafe Italiano has a lengthy wine list, plus plenty of local seafood and vegan italian dishes

Dirty Dan Harris's Steakhouse has loads of local charm. Their menu is primarily huge, delicious steaks and rich seafood dishes.
