The Hi-Life Restaurant Review

: The historic building (originally a 1911 firehouse) in which The Hi-Life is situated acts as the setting for dining on its upscale comfort food. Find the front door by looking for the 20-foot neon sign atop the old elevator shaft inviting you to "Eat" and "Drink." Although the atmosphere is upbeat and charming, it's geared towards casual and relaxed. Breakfast and brunch patrons enjoy specialties such as vanilla custard-dipped french toast, a cast iron enchilada stack topped with sunny side up eggs, and vegetable hash over polenta, finished with poached eggs. Lunch features wood-fired pizzas and interesting soup-and-salad combinations. The dinner menu lists steaks, burgers and wild salmon along with spaghetti with fresh Dungeness crab and garlic. A full bar offers an array of libations to please all tastes.
