St. Helens Cafe brings the 'yum'

Sarah and I stopped by to check out St. Helens Cafe yesterday for some dinner. This was Sarah's second trip and my first. I have to hand it to them. The space is great and the people manning host duties and keeping an eye on the dining area were eager to please but in a pleasant way. We ordered right at the door and sat in the back near the windows. On the way we passed a rather empty looking bar with a great metalwork mural of Mt. St. Helens. There was art of other local buildings adding interest to other walls and the large wood beams left exposed create a comfortable, warm feeling for diners.

Sarah got her fish 'n chips and with their homemade batter and tarter sauce declares them the best in town. I had me a bacon cheeseburger and, although not normally a burger man much (I likes me some buffalo, thank you very much) it was really tasty. The fries hit the spot with a little malt vinegar drizzled on top.

St. Helens Cafe is a great place for a casual meal in a comfortable setting. The prices are a tad high but worth it overall I think. I can't wait to stop by when the weather's better to enjoy their front patio or a seat inside near the garage doors that look prime to slide open.

The view from a back table at St. Helens Cafe

It's a pretty sprawling layout but still pretty warm and inviting

Looking toward the front of the restaurant -- you can see those great garage-like doors up there
