It was an overnight stop between Vancouver BC and the Oregon coast on week 5 of our 7 week road trip. We were staying at the local LaQuinta and I had found a nearby pub on the Internet that looked adequate. On our way out to the car I asked the desk clerk to confirm my dinner choice. She told us it was OK but that she thought we'd like Budd Bay Cafe better. Why argue?
It wasn't far and it was easy to find. We opted for an outdoor table overlooking the marina. We had been advised to try the crab and cheese appetizer. It was so good! I ordered the Cajun Calamari salad and MRP opted for the chicken Parmesan. Both dishes were beyond expectations and very reasonably priced. As we approached our 6th week on the road we both agreed that this was one of the best meals we had had during he whole trip.
The beautiful setting didn't hurt either. We were both snapping photos of each other and the surroundings with the sunset in the blue sky, the boats in the water and the colorful flowers near our table. Out of the thousands of pictures we took on this journey, one of the photos of my wife at Budd Bay Cafe is now her current FB profile photo.
