Where to Eat
Surrounded by the rural landscape of Whatcom County, Bellingham is home to a thriving network of farms and fisheries that supplies the community with a wide variety of¬†locally¬†harvested products.¬†Wild salmon, shellfish, buffalo, lavender, artisan cheeses, gourmet chocolates, award-winning wine and microbrews are all highlights here. Many restaurants rely on local farms for their ingredients, and several farms are open to the public. Agriculturally, Whatcom County¬†is especially prolific in¬†raspberry and¬†dairy¬†production, ranking top in the nation for both.
Food of all flavors and styles is plentiful here, from fine dining to a quick bite on the run. Start your day with a fresh bagel and locally roasted coffee, a European-style pastry or a hot breakfast burrito. Enjoy a relaxing lunch or dinner ranging from seafood to steak, or ethnic cuisine from Asian to Dutch and all points in between.
Be sure to top it off with a delectable dessert. We are also home to incredible chocolate, ice cream, cup cake and pastry makers.
