Cafe Nola Restaurant Review: Whether you’re stopping by for lunch or brunch while exploring Winslow, or venturing across Elliott Bay for a sunset dinner, it’s worth the 30-minute ferryboat ride to dine at Café Nola. By day the casual setting is inviting and warm, while by nightfall it becomes romantic with candles and linen tablecloths. Chef/owner Kevin Warren uses seasonal ingredients to craft the dishes on his imaginative menu, which might feature bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with chorizo; blue corn pancakes enhanced with duck, smoked paprika sour cream and charred jalapeño pepper sauce; halibut tacos; or butternut squash ravioli tossed with brown butter sauce. For brunch, don’t miss the salmon latkes. The lunch menu highlights salads and sandwiches, including a Dungeness crab melt. The selective wine list offers a range of Northwest vintages. Service is consistent.
