Home Cooking, Cafe Setting, All Day Breakfast
Welcome home to the Big Blue, Arcata’s favorite cafe. 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.
Some of our most popular menu items are our buttermilk pancakes, thick sliced french toast (topped with warm blueberries, organic banana slices and sprinkled with walnuts), breakfast burrito, Karen’s famous potatoes, not to mention our classically-prepared biscuits and gravy. Lunch favorites are many, to name a few: Jeff’s clam chowder (New England style), our ginger-garlic roast beef sandwich, focaccia sandwich, hand cut french fries, daily soups and salads with house made dressings. Organic strawberry smoothies, organic carrot juice, mocha milkshakes and espresso drinks are some of our customers’ favorite treats.
We thank our local suppliers for their high quality fresh and organic produce, coffee, espresso, honey, bread, tofu, meat and beer.
Private parties are welcome to reserve the cafe for early morning meetings and parties. You will be taken care of by our professional wait staff and your meal prepared by our skilled and food safety certified cooks.
