Purple Café & Wine Bar is a multifaceted food and wine concept that merges casual sophistication with an upbeat metropolitan style. They feature a global wine selection, coupled with a menu that blends classic American styles, seasonal Northwest ingredients and Mediterranean themes. The atmosphere is often described as an urban retreat with rustic elements.

Culinary Director, Harry Mills takes a moment to explain the importance of pairing. Everyday at the Purple Cafe specials are brought into the wine cellar and physically paired with the wine that best suits each dish. Mills says that as a cook it is important to start with the wine of your choice and build your meal around it. You can reseason your food more easily than your wine.
