It had to be fish and chips AND it had to be from The Depot Cafe in Albany.
I'm not always a weakling when they hit--only about 99% of the time. How about you?
Of course, it didn't hurt that N and I were on our way back from meeting Jonathon in Eugene. Which is probably how the craving began. Can't fool the brain into forgetting we'll be driving past Albany.
I've had fellow Depot Cafe fiends tell me that they can't resist the Depot Pesto Salad or Bonnie's Shrimp Crunch Salad, but even when I've convinced myself I'm going to give one a try--I bail at the last minute. The waitress asks for our order and before I know it, "a medium fish dinner, please", is already out of my mouth.
I fell in love the first time N took me to The Depot Cafe. It's the combination of the fun funky/rustic interior with the airplanes hanging from the ceiling, the big salt water aquarium and the consistent quality we've experienced that has turned us into fans.
Check them out, the next time you find yourself near Albany.
