Thursday was a day off for me. I took Wayne to the Vancouver Boat Show for Off the Grid presentations then took my time getting back to Bellingham. My first stop was the Peace Arch International Park, a free zone between the Canadian and U.S. border crossings.
After clearing customs, I stopped in Blaine, Washington. After strolling around the marina and looking at boats, I got hungry. I drove down Blaine's main drag, aptly named Peace Arch Portal Way, and found a cute little cafe in a remodeled caboose.
Not only is the Little Red Caboose Cafe cute, it has great food. It's family owned by Dave and Susan Smith. They are open for breakfast with traditional combos and early morning sandwiches, and lunch with sandwiches (including Philly cheese steak) and salads. Or just stop by for a latte inside or on the patio.
I opted for a wrap. Sorry, I was so hungry I took a bite before taking the picture. But that lets you see how good it looks inside and out.
Do you have any special family owned restaurants or shops that you love to visit? I'd love to hear about them. -- Margy
