Bellingham (well, up the road from Bham, actually): Maple Falls Cafe
We take pretty infrequent trips up Mount Baker Highway, but the next time we go for a quick camping trip or hike, maybe we'll try this new restaurant. The veggie pickings are slim, but look good. If I was a meat eater, I'd be more excited about it.
Like the story. Owner sounds like he's really in his groove. I wonder if he has any Middle Eastern background and inclination to do up some good ME cuisine :-)
We're staying put by Bellingham Bay this week, not venturing much outside the area. I might go check out Bare Bones BBQ food truck but that's as far as I feel like going :-)
