What is Purple?
Purple Café and Wine Bar pairs a global wine selection with a menu that combines classic American styles with seasonal Northwest ingredients. The staff at each of our locations creates their own variations on this theme, from each Wine Director's bottle selections, to every chef's daily specials. So while similar, each Purple offers an experience that is unique.
What kind of food does Purple serve?
We feature an expansive menu ranging from artisan cheeses, starters, soups, salads, sandwiches and pizzas to pasta and seafood. Each Purple location utilizes the freshest, local ingredients that change with the seasons.
What about the drinks?
With a wine list that features over 80 glass and 600 bottle selections, each Purple utilizes a dedicated Wine Director with a unique perspective. Over the years our wine program has been recognized with various accolades that include an "Award of Ultimate Distinction" from Wine Enthusiast Magazine and being named "Best Wine Bar" by Evening Magazine's Best of Western Washington Viewers Poll.
