Take the essence of good taste and combine
it with a flavoring of herbs and, Voila, you have the cute little
Herbal Essence Café!
This purveyor of contemporary Northwest cuisine is tucked into
a historic brick building right downtown. A friendly lunch and
dinner spot, this is on the regular list for the surrounding office
dwellers and concert attendees. Serving up steak, seafood and spirits
it continually raises the spirits of those who partake.
Lunch includes such treats as sandwiches, wraps and salads. These
common items move into the indulgence category when they become
the unique Smashed Sub, Kobe Beef Burger or the Gorgonzola Chicken
Wrap. Be assured that there are good, more common Rubens and Turkey
sandwiches offered too. Or maybe the Half-Baked Sub and Soup De
Jour is more up your alley. Salads are fresh, herbal tasty and
innovative. Smaller plate grilled entrees are available as luncheon
A popular café for the pre-symphony crowd, dinner is a
delightful blend of steak, seafood, chicken and tofu delights.
A pastry wrapped baked Brie is the favorite appetizer among several
other first plates. Seafood entrée’s feature Potato
Crusted Halibut, Seafood Baked Salmon and Dungeness Crab Cakes
among others. Gorgonzola Topped Sirloin, Seafood Stuffed Rib Eye
and Prime Rib on Fri and Sat nights are always popular. Roasted
Lamb and Pork loins also have an Herbal presentation.
A revolving seasonal specialty is the preparation of wild game
dishes. Expect to find at least one version of venison, elk, quail
or pheasant on the menu. Is buffalo wild any more?
All Entrees are served with your choice of
Herbal Essence's award winning house salad, Caesar salad or clam
chowder. A nice wine list compliments the entrees and don’t
forget to round out the evening with desert. All of this is warmly
served up in a cozy yellow-walled space over seen by a large
salt-water aquarium. The knowledgeable staff is friendly and
waiting to serve you.
Herbal Essence requests your dining presence!
