welcome to
mediterranean influenced
comfort food

Baba is a restaurant based on comfort food with a Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Asian influence. We take the food we grew up eating and cook it using techniques and spices from around the world. It’s a version and inspiration of food using local, seasonal ingredients to showcase flavors that are new and different. We aim to create something approachable and as always, delicious. We lean towards a more casual feeling for brunch or dinner, every day of the week. If you’re just grabbing lunch or have a special occasion, we have the right meal for you!

We do not take reservations.

local

We use as many local producers and farmers as possible. We strive to keep our food within 450 miles of our restaurant. Constantly searching out and forging new relationships with the people who live and work the land of the northwest.

quality

Our job is to constantly be searching for the best quality ingredients. It is our commitment to our guests, our craft and to the products with which we let shine.

simplicity

This is a key element to our foods. It is something we strive for in the pursuit of perfection. Always questioning what we can take away to let our products show for themselves. What can we do to simplify the products to produce them in an honest way that lets them be the best they can be.
