Nestled on Solano Avenue in North Berkeley, Cafe Eugene serves Pacific Northwest fare in seasonally-focused dishes like Northwest coastal stew teeming with mussels, clams, squid and fish in a fennel-saffron broth or skirt steak atop creamed corn polenta. Brunch crowds rave about scrambled green eggs and cured salmon or slow-roasted pork shoulder with creamy cheese grits. The comfortable, woodsy dining room features a petite bar pouring Washington and Oregon wines alongside craft beers and house cocktails like the I-5 High Five (gin, marionberry liqueur, spiced pear brandy, lemon, rosemary).
