Camber Coffee 221 W Holly St, Bellingham Cafe • $

“I recently ordered a 2lbs bag of Camber's Skyline Espresso, and it was stellar.When I pulled my first shot, there was complexity and approachability with notes of stone fruit and floral undertones.Not only was the espresso itself exceptional, but the service from Camber was top-notch as well. The shipping was incredibly fast, with my order arriving within just two days of placing it. Not to mention, their packaging was aesthetically very pleasing-- the mailing box and the beans themselves were a thematic package and even came with a complimentary, pocket-sized coffee journal. It's clear that Camber takes pride in their product.After experiencing the quality of their Skyline Espresso, I can't wait to explore more of Camber's offerings and hope for the opportunity to visit their coffee shop in person in the near future!”

“Went here for my birthday with the family and it didn’t disappoint. We tried the Saganaki (fried cheese flamed at our table) for appetizer. And we decided to go with the Greek Platter for 2. This was a 3 course meal that was more than enough for me and wife and needed a box to bring home leftovers. The first course was one spanakopita and one tiropita. Both were tasty. Followed up with 2 small Greek salads paired with the house dressing that brought a nice balance and didn’t over power the salad. The main course was a HUGE platter of two dolmades, moussaka, Greek ribs and rice pilaf. These dolmades were delicious, the moussaka was seasoned, tasted amazing and held up well. And the Greek ribs was a first try for me. The meat was covered with a dry rub that is beyond flavorful and the meat was so tender. This was all served over rice pilaf that was moist Ended with night with a Greek special dessert. Coming to this restaurant for the first time we were well pleased. Will be back again for sure. Our waitress was attentive and helped us understand the menu. If you are looking for a place that puts love into their cooking. Look no further than Five Columns.”

“My wife and I visited this place occasionally. Both were a little hungry. Parking lot was ready for our cars. Plenty of spots.1. It is a good place with cosy atmosphere. Music was ok for me, not too loud and not irritating. Our server was polite, friendly and not annoying.2. Menu offers good variety of options. Of course many items are pretty similar due to Italian origin. Our favorite soup is Zuppa Toscana, it comes with salad and bread sticks. This time we ordered it again, plus calamari and watermelon sangria.3. The Chocolate Lasagna was delicious. We love to take it with hot black tea.4. Convenient payment options right at the table via small terminal with user friendly interface.5. Maybe a little expensive, but ok for two of us. We left this place happy and satisfied. What else does couple need for a good evening? Something that we kept for home.”

“Went here for my birthday with the family and it didn’t disappoint. We tried the Saganaki (fried cheese flamed at our table) for appetizer. And we decided to go with the Greek Platter for 2. This was a 3 course meal that was more than enough for me and wife and needed a box to bring home leftovers. The first course was one spanakopita and one tiropita. Both were tasty. Followed up with 2 small Greek salads paired with the house dressing that brought a nice balance and didn’t over power the salad. The main course was a HUGE platter of two dolmades, moussaka, Greek ribs and rice pilaf. These dolmades were delicious, the moussaka was seasoned, tasted amazing and held up well. And the Greek ribs was a first try for me. The meat was covered with a dry rub that is beyond flavorful and the meat was so tender. This was all served over rice pilaf that was moist Ended with night with a Greek special dessert. Coming to this restaurant for the first time we were well pleased. Will be back again for sure. Our waitress was attentive and helped us understand the menu. If you are looking for a place that puts love into their cooking. Look no further than Five Columns.”

“My wife and I visited this place occasionally. Both were a little hungry. Parking lot was ready for our cars. Plenty of spots.1. It is a good place with cosy atmosphere. Music was ok for me, not too loud and not irritating. Our server was polite, friendly and not annoying.2. Menu offers good variety of options. Of course many items are pretty similar due to Italian origin. Our favorite soup is Zuppa Toscana, it comes with salad and bread sticks. This time we ordered it again, plus calamari and watermelon sangria.3. The Chocolate Lasagna was delicious. We love to take it with hot black tea.4. Convenient payment options right at the table via small terminal with user friendly interface.5. Maybe a little expensive, but ok for two of us. We left this place happy and satisfied. What else does couple need for a good evening? Something that we kept for home.”

It's very rich and more mushroom flavor than we like.Beers were excellent”

Estelle

Estelle 1147 11th St, Bellingham Cocktail Bar • $$

“We frequently go to Carnal, which is a sister restaurant to Estelle, and were excited to try this spot as well. The food was very much on par with what we expected...maybe a few more toast points with the rillettes, we ended up with a lot of leftover trout. The eggplant served with my sole was a little overcooked, pretty much just mush. The flavor profiles are always what's exciting about these places, and I appreciate the seasonings and sauces (the crispy cauliflower was amazing.) The service was a little lacking, like you could tell they were at the end of their day and it had been a long one. I wouldn't steer people away from this spot, but I'd recommend Carnal over Estelle 99% of the time.”
