Ciao Thyme Cafe
CIAO THYME'S 'ON THE SIDE' CAFE HOURS
TUESDAY - FRIDAY 11am to 3pm
dine-in or take-out
People have asked us for years when we would open a restaurant. We thought we could satisfy them with Incognito--our (occasional) restaurant dinner series. How naive we were--the dinners and classes just expanded the crowd that was asking for more Ciao Thyme. As we head into our twelfth year of business in Bellingham, we have a vision for the next twelve years. Imagine this...you are working downtown and dying to step out of the office for a quick, delicious lunch. You walk down the block to 207 Unity street, push open the orange door and step into Ciao Thyme On the Side.
We plan to greet you with a warm smile and the aromas of delicious soups, sandwiches, and freshly baked bread. You will be tempted by sides of organic farro salad with roasted cauliflower, smoked shitake mushrooms and fennel soffritto; and roasted tomato soup with cardamom creme fraiche and croutons; and onion-rye rolls withroasted porchetta and kale-plum slaw; and warm chocolate chip cookies with vanilla salt . You place your order, pick up your tray and find a seat. You strike up a friendly conversation with the person next to you. When you leave, you feel nourished--body and soul recharged for the continuation of your day.
The menu will change with the farm produce of the seasons. There is no pretense in this space, just high quality ingredients prepared with care and delivered with love. Folks come knowing they can trust that the food that is prepared here will be sourced responsibly. They know that by choosing Ciao Thyme On the Side, their dining dollars will go farther in this community to support local families, local farmers, and other small businesses in Bellingham--keeping our community thriving.
