A Culinary Destination

A full service cafe, established in 2010, has made the port gamble general store more than a historical destination. In the short time since the cafe opened, it has become a favorite destination for locals, filling the void of “from scratch” cooking with thoughtfully sourced ingredients in the region. At the cafe, we take our ingredients seriously; shopping around for quality, local, fresh, organic and/or non GMO products, with which our talented kitchen staff uses to create all the loveliness that makes its way to you when you visit us.

Ingredients

To nourish as well as delight. We research and search for great ingredients, taking care to honor and support local sources and purveyors, who care about what goes in our bodies and how their methods affect the environment.

Baked Goods

We are spoiled.  Our chef is a pastry chef!  Between her, and the owner's mom (maker of delicious cinnamon rolls and bread pudding), we have the prettiest, yummiest pastry cases in the region, and beyond. Exceptional talent and training combined with great ingredients make our baked goods amazing!

Farm to Table

We begin with a strong base; quality ingredients, often made possible by our region’s hard working farmers and purveyors.  We can never thank them enough for all they do! Do you know your local farmers? If so, hug them and thank them for us.  They are our roots, and we could not grow without them.

Slow Food


We believe that good food takes time. Quick in-and-out dining is not our style.

Slow Food


We believe that good food takes time. Quick in-and-out dining is not our style.

We’ll be honest, quick in-and-out service is not our style, nor our mission. We believe that good food takes time, whether we are handcrafting components while prepping, to the time it takes putting it all together on the line. The organic eggs won’t be cracked or scrambled until you order. And we still use old fashioned appliances like a stove top and oven. In fact, we don’t have a microwave on the premises. We butcher whole, organic chicken daily; no frozen, precooked, boneless, skinless chicken breasts here. We realize that most people are too busy to be able to cook like this for themselves on a regular basis, and we want to provide that for our community.

 

During a busy weekend breakfast, expect to wait for both a table and your order. We move as fast as we can, but it takes a minimum of 10 minutes to focus on one set of orders.  Multiply that by two dining rooms full of customers, and you will understand.  All we can say, is relax, have a cocktail or two, chat with your companions, shop in the general store, or have dessert first.  Our desserts are some of the best you will ever experience, so go for it!

THE BAR


Local Beer

Best of the Northwest

We have 24 taps that constantly rotate due to the abundance of great breweries in our region, and have devoted two of those taps to our gluten free customers with one GF beer and one rotating cider tap.

Wine

Regional Vino

Our wine list is kinda geeky; comprised of small producers, often organic or biodynamic, food-friendly as a priority, and from our favorite wine regions.  You will find wines made from grapes you have never heard of, much less pronounce.  Be brave and try them!  How many wine lists will offer you the opportunity to do so?

Cocktails

Mixology

Our focus is on small batch, artisan, and lesser known distillers…with new distilleries popping up almost daily, we have chosen to be adventurous and supportive of the little guys. We apologize in advance for not having the usual suspects, but again, life is about adventure…try something different for a change.  Like our kitchen, quality and handcraft rules the roost; we juice citrus, make our own simple syrups, muddle fresh herbs, just like you’d expect. Our famous Garden Mary mix is made with juiced cucumbers and jalapeños…the source of its spice!

PORT GAMBLE STORE


A historical landmark and beautiful setting to shop.

Once upon a time,  a mill town community lived and worked in Port Gamble, WA. The community relied on the General Store for its many needs. With the closing of the mill in 1995, the need for the general store to provide groceries, clothing, housewares, etc, came to an end. Today, the General Store is valued as a historic building that houses a cafe and retail store; selling a variety of items for locals and tourists, including: ice cream, espresso, candy, gifts, cards, souvenirs, home and seasonal decor, and NW wines.

 

 Be sure to mark your calendar for the general store's yearly holiday open house, always the second Saturday of November. Overnight, the general store becomes a holiday wonderland, with at least 8 trees, decorated in many themes and color schemes. Live music, cookies and coffee, merchandise giveaways, wine tasting, and a food drive round out this anticipated event.
