Pogacha began in 1986 as the creation of Helen Brocard, a daughter of Croatian parents, whose knowledge and understanding of food began at her parents’ Vashon Island farm, producing what is well known today as Pogacha Restaurant. We currently serve lunch Monday through Saturday and Dinner nightly. Visit our Pogacha Cafe in downtown Bellevue for weekday espresso, breakfast and lunch options. We also provide Catering throughout the area and many extended areas.
Pogacha Restaurant features a Northwest menu with the added flair of the Adriatic and Italian, fresh herbs started from seedlings in the family garden in Croatia, and an exceptional wine list which enables you to enjoy quality wine at a truly reasonable price, whether you are a wine connoisseur or wine novice.
The name “pogacha” is a Croatian term meaning “soft, chewy flatbread” (pogaca). Our Pogacha’s are freshly made each morning, formed by hand, and baked in our wood fired oven, a replica of those found in Europe.
Pogacha Restaurant is owned by Brad and Lisa Cassidy, natives of the Seattle area, who firmly believe in the culinary arts, and who have adopted a love for quality food prepared simply, freshly, and with care. On behalf of ourselves and some special and talented individuals who share our view of Pogacha, we welcome you to Pogacha. Zivio!
