Home Cooking, Café Setting, All Day Breakfast
Welcome home to the “Big Blue,” Arcata’s favorite café. You’ll find a warm, cozy atmosphere with delicious, fresh meals served up with the Big Blue’s own special blend of organic house coffee. The coffee is always strong, and the food is made from scratch using only the best ingredients.
Come in and enjoy our buttermilk pancakes, thick sliced french toast (topped with warm blueberries, organic banana slices and sprinkled with walnuts), breakfast burrito, and Karen’s famous potatoes, not to mention our traditional or vegetarian biscuits and gravy. For lunch, try Jeff’s clam chowder (New England style), our ginger-garlic roast beef sandwich, Rocky’s free range chicken melt, hand-cut french fries, daily soups, and salads with housemade dressings. Fresh carrot juice, espresso drinks and pitchers of mimosas are some of our customers’ favorite treats. We slow-cook our own roast beef, cut our own steaks in-house, and proudly feature Loleta cheese.
We would like to thank our local suppliers for their high quality fresh and organic produce, coffee, espresso, honey, bread, tofu, meat and beer.
So come on in to the Big Blue. You‘ll be well taken care of by our professional wait staff, and your meal will be prepared by our skilled and food safety certified cooks.
