Old Town Cafe: 316 W. Holly St.
I first wrote about Old Town Cafe back in 2008. Since that time, I would be hard pressed to guess how many (hundreds?) of breakfasts I have consumed there! It is still one of my All-Time Favorite Places in Bellingham. In fact, I would go so far as to say I can think of no more perfect way to start a Sunday than with breakfast at Old Town followed by a wonderful hike somewhere in this gorgeous place where I get to live.
Old Town has options for every person with every dietary need, be it omnivorous, vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, you name it! I really love the tofu southwest scramble and the lovely slices of avocado that accompany it, but my latest favorite thing to get is a build-your-own tofu scramble with carrots, cabbage, kale and onion. And although I LOVE their home fries and black beans, I have as of late been subbing those sides in for a salad with their exceptionally tasty tofu-dill dressing. I can't get enough of that!
A few more things to note the wait staff there, actually everyone there, is ALWAYS so very very nice. Friendly, funny, gracious and attentive, you get the feeling that everyone is happy to be there and that they all work well together. In addition to having delicious food, the place just makes you feel good because the energy is so great.
