The concept of gourmet comfort food may seem like an oxymoron, but it’s the 42nd Street Cafe & Bistro’s longtime and well deserved claim to fame. Known as the “original roadside cafe,” the decor is cheery, the staff is welcoming and the menu is an ever-changing showcase of seasonal seafood and casual homestyle temptations – all done with a classy twist.
Nourish your morning with delicacies like house-smoked salmon scrambled eggs or the New Orleans style beignets. For lunch, items like the Fish Monger Fish and Shrimp “Burger” and Tomato, Blue Cheese and Brandy Soup have earned local-legend status. American bistro-style dinners include Northwest Razor Clams, Bistro Steak & Prawns and Eight-Hour Pot Roast. All meals come with their signature Marionberry Conserve - which can also be purchased to go or shipped for home delivery – in addition to to the longtime establishment's other homemade condiments. There’s a fully stocked bar with an abundance of beers, wines, ciders and creative cocktails. The dessert menu is equally as enticing and features a house-made ice cream of the month.
In keeping with their family-and-friends-first philosophy, the 42nd Street Cafe and Bistro also prepares a Thanksgiving Meal To-Go - so folks can spend more time with their loved ones during the holiday instead of slaving away over the turkey and sides. Another homestyle hospitality - if you like what you eat, they’ll give you the recipe. All you have to do is ask!
