The piece de resistance at Cascadia is their homemade soup. Its nourishing, delicious and its served at a wallet friendly price. On any given day you might slurp down smoky green split pea with sage and garlic, tomatillo corn chowder with Anaheim chilies and zucchini or wild mushroom soup with porcini, white wine and cream. Afterwards, treat yourself to one of Cascadia's legendary treats such as the peanut butter bar loaded with premium milk chocolate or, if you are feeling virtuous, a pumpkin millet muffin. Take home a loaf of the wonderful foccacia bread for later. Cascadia has a selection of vegan, sugar free and dairy treats but they also have decadent buttery "full on" baking confections. There's something for everyone here.
After an afternoon hunting for vintage treasures at the nearby Value Village or if you just happen to be strolling the neighbourhood, park yourself at a cozy table in Cascadia for a restorative bowl of soup, a panini or a sweet treat. You'll feel restored, I promise!
