One of Bellevue's enduring treasures is the unpretentious, Eastern European–flavored eatery specializing in the sweetly pillowy pogacha bread of Croatia. This they top like a pizza or stuff like a sandwich, with cheeses and smoked meats and roasted vegetables, then send for a spin through the applewood-fired oven to arrive chewy within and crisp at the edges. Salads, soups, and pastas are housemade—try the portobello ravioli—and servers accommodating. Two locations in Bellevue and one in Issaquah render Pogacha a chain, but few Eastside restaurants manage to feel so distinctive—especially the original, whose central hearth and bright persimmon walls displaying the work of local artists transform downtown Bellevue into a neighborhood. Great for families.
