Day 237 of 365…
HIDDEN GEM ALERT! Today I discovered a wonderful cafe that you’ve likely driven by hundreds of times and never known it was there. It is on the main campus of Southwest Washington Medical Center on the 87th Avenue side. This great place is called the Recovery Room Cafe.
When I say this place is hidden I mean it. It is located on the lower level of Building A at the 505 NE 87th Avenue location. Trust me when I say it’s worth finding. This cafe is open Monday through Friday from 7:30am to 3pm and is making everything fresh onsite each day. They serve breakfast and lunch with daily specials and daily soups of the day. My lunch was awesome. I had half of The Green Turkey (turkey, provolone, guac, bacon, etc on a croissant) and half of The Italian Job (salami, pepperoni, ham, provolone, tomato, peppers, etc on a sub roll). Both were excellent!
They also serve a variety of fresh salads and freshly made 10″ personal pizzas. I can’t wait to go back and try their pizzas. I met a gal there who says they make an amazing cucumber salad too. The interior is simply decorated and very comfortable and highlights local photographer Trygve Blixt (who also operates this with his mom and dad Cindy and Fleming Blixt). In addition to the inside seating they have a very cool private outdoor patio with a beautiful waterfall.
One cool feature about the Recovery Room Cafe is they deliver to anywhere on the Southwest Washington Medical Center campus! So you can call them up and they’ll bring your meal to you. How cool is that! They also offer catering through Five Star Catering. You can contact them for catering services at 360-904-1967.
Recovery Room Cafe is located at 505 NE 87th Avenue, Suite LL47, Vancouver, WA, 98664 and can be reached at 360-718-2279. You can also connect with Recovery Room Cafe on Facebook.
