042819-bots-best-downtown-lunch shuga's Shuga’s Restaurant

Shuga’s Restaurant's “Mully's Snack Board” — herb-marinated goat cheese, jar salami, prosciutto, radish, apple, strawberries, grilled pita and toast.

The homey nature of Shuga’s (702 S. Cascade Ave.) is found out the front door, where patrons have ample, free parking not so common to the meter-spotted restaurant scene downtown. Then one steps inside the converted house, greeted by art and origami birds flying above the bar, where is found a friendly face. It’s coffee by day, cocktails by night — unless you like it the other way around. Hungry? Try some multicultural fare from a seasonally changing menu. But don’t miss the coconut shrimp soup.
