Our purpose at 42nd Street Café & Bistro is to provide a casual, warm and friendly dining experience; the kind that allows you to relax and renew your faith in yourself and life’s possibilities.

The menu changes to take advantage of and feature which is seasonally available, with 103-0371_IMGspecial emphasis on show casing the seafood of the pristine waters surrounding the peninsula: The Columbia River, The Pacific Ocean and Willapa Bay.

Everyone can taste the difference when good ingredients are used, like real butter used to cook the fried red potatoes, and the care taken in food preparation, when the omelets are hand-folded and the chicken is skillet-fried. Though our training was French, all the dishes we offer reflect the cuisines of the West Coast with all of its Mexican, Italian and Asian influences….and our trips to New Orleans.


We’re locally owned and operated by people who have lived, cooked and served on the coast for 30 years. Jean-Marc commutes from Astoria, OR. KC, Beau, Ernie, Brenda and Betty live in Long Beach. Combined we have over 125 years of restaurant experience; almost all of it “on the job” only one member of the staff attended a culinary school (we kid them). Most important, we all live here year round….and want you to have a great time.
