Seafood Café Opens at Bellingham Cruise Terminal

Next time you visit the Bellingham Cruise Terminal, be sure you arrive with a healthy appetite.

Halibut Henry’s Café just opened for business and plans to provide seafood and Northwest faire from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily. On Fridays and Saturdays, when the Alaska State Ferry is in Bellingham, the café will remain open until 5 p.m.

The café name and its owner Vicki Rogers are familiar to many people in the community. Rogers also owns and operates the cruise terminal gift shop, Inside Passage; a Fairhaven kitchen store, Pacific Chef and a Bellingham Airport café, Halibut Henry’s. Rogers’ gift shop was one of the first businesses in the cruise terminal, opening 23 years ago. Rogers employs over 30 people in her Bellingham businesses.

“As a longtime cruise terminal business owner, I have a strong understanding of what type of food people want to enjoy when they visit this great waterfront attraction,” Rogers said. “We developed a wild seafood menu that offers delicious informal food to customers to enjoy here or take with them.”

The menu features such items as: halibut and chips, crab melts, Henry’s Halibut Tacos (their signature dish), salmon sandwiches and clam chowder. Breakfast items include a variety of baked goods, yogurt parfaits and breakfast sandwiches. The café also will be offering espresso drinks.

Halibut Henry’s will only carry wild seafood products and will be offering boxed lunches and breakfasts for events.

“Vicki is an outstanding local businesswoman who already has demonstrated the quality of her café offerings,” said Port Commission President Scott Walker. "Now both local people and visitors can enjoy great food at a great waterfront location."
