Gov. Jay Inslee issued guidance today for partially resuming the dine-in restaurant and tavern industry for counties granted variance under the Safe Start Phase 2 recovery plan laid out last week.
Through the Washington “Safe Start” plan, more businesses and activities will re-open in subsequent phases with adequate safety and health standards in place. Each phase will be at least three weeks — metrics and data will guide when the state can move from one phase to another.
Through the Safe Start approach, counties with a population of less than 75,000 that have not had a new case of COVID-19 in the past three weeks can apply for a variance to move to Phase 2 of “Safe Start” before other parts of the state. County variance applications will be approved or denied by the secretary of the Department of Health. Eight counties have received the variance.
For counties granted variance to move to Phase 2, restaurant operations may resume with limitations after meeting specific criteria, effective May 11, 2020.
“No restaurant or tavern may operate indoor or sit-down services until they can meet and maintain all requirements, including providing materials, schedules and equipment required to comply,” the guidance states.
The Hammond Kitchen and Craft Bar has some amazing Sunday Easter Brunch options for takeout or delivery.
First, they have brunch family meals available for pre-order today through Saturday morning!
It includes fresh-baked croissants, fresh fruit, deviled eggs, crab cakes, scrambled eggs with sharp cheddar and scallions, crispy breakfast potatoes, and Carlton Farms bacon. Available in two and four-person packages. This is available to order until Saturday at noon.
And second, they have a la carte options that will be available on Sunday, as well! Those include Crab Cake Benedicts, Original Benedicts, their Classic Breakfast, and their Healthy Breakfast Bowl!
If you do order a package, there will be a prompt for a Sunday pick-up time. This will appear after you choose a four or two-person package.
Hammond Bloody Mary & Mimosa kits will be available too!
”We appreciate your continued support, so very much,” said Gwen Goodrich, co-owner of The Hammond. “We are so grateful for our customers!”
Restaurants, along with several industries, have been hit very hard by the COVID-19 virus outbreak. Washington Governor Inslee’s orders to limit restaurants to take out, or grab-and-go, has adversely affected these businesses. So, we’ve compiled a list of Camas and Washougal restaurants that are accepting take out and grab-and-go orders.
To help Camas High School students pay the cost of an upcoming Courts for Kids service trip to Los Pilares, Panama, Natalia’s Cafe, located in historic downtown Camas, is hosting a special dinner this Saturday, February 29 from 5:30 pm – 9:30 pm.
It’s a special 1950s themed dinner featuring Erica Slothower and Wendy Delbosque in their “Two Broke Girls” attire. The restaurant is also selling T-shirts to help the cause. One hundred percent of proceeds will benefit the program, which focuses on building special sports courts in communities that need them.
“We love to support worthy causes like Courts for Kids,” said Slothower, owner of Natalia’s Cafe. “We will have fun dressing up as “Two Broke Girls,” which we haven’t done since the Small Business Revolution campaign last year. It’ll be a lot of fun and we hope to fill the cafe Saturday night for this special event. Courts for Kids is a great program that helps kids in developing nations, plus it’s great to see our local students serve others. We are happy to help.”
Each year, several Camas High School students participate in the Courts for Kids program.
“We also hope you buy our T-shirts,” said Luke Orlando, a Camas student participating in the program. “They have a great design and were produced by Papermaker Pride. Hope to see you there!”
The Hammond Kitchen and Craft Bar changes their menu with the seasons — and when new ideas emerge (which is often) so the amazing crew recently changed up their Brunch, which is served every Saturday and Sunday from 11 am until 3 pm.
This article spotlights three Brunch dishes: King Salmon Omelet, Chicken & Waffle, and the Crab Cake Benedict, along with three drinks: Santagria, The Grinch, and Hot Buttered Rum.
The omelet is made with house smoked king salmon, brie cheese, dilled hollandaise and crispy breakfast potatoes. This dish is served with just the right amount of mouth-watering salmon, whisked eggs, and drizzled with a delicate dilled hollandaise. Served with breakfast potatoes.
The Chicken and Waffle dish is the right balance of savory and sweet. The fried chicken is made to perfection and placed atop homemade waffles that are light and fluffy — served with rosemary butter and maple syrup.
The Crab Cake Benedict is a Lacamas Magazine favorite! Served on two toasted English muffins, the dish comes with two griddle crab cakes, soft poached eggs, a rich hollandaise, and crispy breakfast potatoes.
Other dishes include the Traditional Benedict, Healthy Breakfast Bowl (which is vegetarian), a Classic Breakfast, Breakfast Sandwich, Wood Grilled Sirloin Steak, Short Rib Hash, and the Freshly Baked Croissant, served with banana slices, Greek yogurt with honey and toasted almonds.
Brunch is always a time to relax and enjoy life in a non-rushed environment. The Hammond accomplishes all those things, and so much more. We highly recommend spending your brunch this weekend with their team.

As part of a fun collaboration, the Camas Hotel breakfast being served by Tommy O’s is now available to the public every morning from 8-11 am (weekends until noon).
Tommy O’s fans can enjoy several great new dishes, as follows:
Loco Moco: A Hawaiian staple with their housemade St. Helens beef patty, fried eggs, and brown gravy atop a bed of white rice.
Island Scramble: Three-egg scramble with bell pepper, spinach, and sweet corn. Served with white rice or seasoned homestyle potatoes.
Local Boy: Traditional island fare. Two eggs cooked your way with a choice of Kalua pork, bacon, Portuguese sausage, or fried Spam and a side of white rice.
Huevos Rancheros Verde: House fried corn tortillas cooked with a spicy tomatillo lime salsa, black beans, queso fresco, pico de gallo, fresh avocado, and two fried eggs.
Bread Pudding French Toast: House made bread pudding, egg dipped and fried golden. Served with your choice of bacon, Portuguese sausage or fried Spam.
Forbidden Rice Breakfast Porridge: A favorite from Southeast Asia. Warm purple forbidden rice cooked with coconut milk and palm sugar, finished with coconut cream, mango pieces, and toasted coconut.
Tommy O’s also offers several sides (eggs, bacon, Hawaiian buns, Mac salad and more) plus several beverages including classic mimosa and tropical mimosas, and a Bloody Mary. For this opening weekend, the mimosas are $2.50.
“It’s been in the works for many months, and we’ve been working with the Camas Hotel to serve their breakfast,” Jon Betts, Tommy O’s General Manager. “We wanted to go away from the traditional breakfast. It’s all Pacific Rim-based with a Spanish flare, and different options. I build my dishes from the ground up and provide something different than they’ve had before.”

Camas, WA — Not even open six months, BurgerIM, locally owned by Chanly Va and Sang Quach, is finding their momentum making quality burgers, sides, salads, and yummy milkshakes — but they also frequently give back 10 percent of their sales to benefit local schools.
When the Camas Athletic Boosters Club approached them about doing special promotions every third Tuesday, BurgerIM Camas quickly agreed to it. Same with Union High School, whose volleyball program has benefitted by special Union High School nights.
These special night promotions require customers to mention the event. Once noted, BurgerIM will donate 10 percent of every sale to the cause.
“We’re happy to help out,” said Va. “This community has been very good to us.”
BurgerIM continues to expand their menu, experimenting with new milkshakes, and they now offer waffle options on their menu.
“The food tastes really good, and we do have good burgers, and lots of variety,” said Va. “We have so many choices: Angus, Dry-aged, Spanish beef (spicy), crispy chicken, salmon, falafel burger, lamb, and the Impossible Burger, which is plant-based. It’s not GMO.”
“We also have gluten-free buns with lettuce options. As a customer, you can order a favorite or build your own. You don’t have to stay with a classic style. You can build whatever you like on the burger. We offer all the menu items that corporate offers. Whatever you can think of, and we have the ingredients, we can do it.”
The restaurant offers the aforementioned big burgers, and you may also order classics as duos or trios. You can match up your favorites and add your choice of toppings.
Sides include regular fries, sweet potato fries, onion rings, half and half, and styled fries with either garlic aioli, jalepenos and cheese, or bacon and cheese.
BugerIM also cooks up a lot of chicken wings, which are available in buffalo, BBQ, and sweet crunchy garlic.
“People always say we have the biggest wings in town,” said Va. “We have really good milkshakes made from fresh milk and real incredible cream. Each are made fresh. We are not fast food, we make gourmet food fast.”
The chain opened in 2011, and the name BurgerIM means “many burgers” in Hebrew.
The restaurant is located at 155 NW 192nd Avenue, Suite 107, Camas, WA 98607. 360-952-8656. To learn more about the company, visit www.BurgerIM.com
