I had the opportunity to enjoy the Crab Fest menu last year and enjoyed the dishes I tried. The team really did a great job in showcasing crab as the key ingredient in each dish. I’m happy to see that the menu has returned this year.
Water Street Cafe Crab Fest Menu 2019
The Crab Fest menu is available daily all day and features 5 dishes and 2 weekend brunch bennies. There are the BC Dungeness Crab Bisque, West Coast Crab Cakes, Crab Napoleon, BC Dungeness Crab Club Salad, and Surf & Surf (1/2 chilled BC Dungeness Crab and halibut). For brunch, there are the Fresh Crab Benny and Crab Cake Benny.
The Crab Napoleon ($23.50) is a new dish to Crab Fest this year and features handpicked BC dungeness crab, puffed pastries, whipped avocado, and Asian soy ginger vinegar dressing. I ate this layer by layer by hand but some might want to eat with a knife and fork.
One of the weekend brunch features I tried was the Fresh Crab Benny ($27.25) featuring English muffin, BC Dungeness Crab, free range eggs, crushed avocado, and house-made hollandaise sauce. The crisp, golden potatoes and fresh salad make this a wholesome brunch option.
The BC Dungeness Crab Bisque ($12) was a hearty soup with creme fraiche and chive oil. You could most certainly taste the crab in the bisque.
Check out the menu before it’s gone! Reservations are recommended.
