Horseshoe Cafe-Oldest Continuous Restaurant in Washington
In my last few weeks in Bellingham, I have learned a little more about the history of the place and have been exploring a lot more than I had been previously. I was in Bellingham again for work this weekend and decided I wanted to try out the Horseshoe Cafe. It has been open since 1886 and is supposedly the oldest continuously running restaurant in Washington. Chris had been a little negative on the place thinking it looked a little seedy from the outside. Having been to the oldest restaurants in Denver and Portland, I wanted to at least give it a try.
It actually was pretty good. It is pretty much a diner. Serving breakfast all day and is open from 0730-2300 at night. Has a bar as well. We went for breakfast this morning. Bill had a standard two egg breakfast with hash browns, sausage and toast. Chris had the chicken fried chicken, two eggs, hash browns and toast and I had a breakfast sandwich on yummy french bread with garlic mayo. It was reasonably priced and while not real classy, it was not a dive anyway.
It was worth the stop to say I have eaten in the oldest restaurant in Washington anyway.
