Farm-to-Table Food Goodness at Wet Planet on the White Salmon River
The Wet Planet Café + Grill is open May through September 11:30am – 6:00pm.
Whether you just worked up an appetite while rafting or kayaking on the White Salmon River, finished an amazing waterfall hike, or call The Gorge home, come check out the Wet Planet Café + Grill—the perfect culinary eddy. Swing by for a tasty burger or a refreshing local beer!
Combining high-quality Farm-to-Table food, local beer on tap, a selection of local wines, and a down to earth atmosphere, the Wet Planet Café + Grill is open spring through fall. The menu includes roasted salmon tacos with freshly caught salmon from the Klickitat River, burgers featuring grass-fed beef, and much more, all with an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients. Kathy Watson, former owner of Nora’s Table and locally-renowned chef, redesigned the Wet Planet Cafe and Grill Menu in April of 2015 to align with Wet Planet’s core commitment to support the local community and sustainable business practices and we’ve kept adding to it ever since.
Located walking distance from Husum Falls, the café creates the perfect stopping point for the whitewater rafting, kayaking, and greater White Salmon River Valley and Columbia River Gorge communities. While the Wet Planet Café & Grill pairs well with a day of whitewater, we’re open for everyone.
So, what does Farm-to-Table mean? It’s simple: the food we’re serving comes straight from local farms and the local community. Check out Wet Planet Café’s local food vendors and partners and see where your delicious meals and beverages come from!
