Toga and Lisa Hertzog have been preparing delicious meals in Port Angeles since 1995. Their first establishment was called 'Togas Northwest and International Cuisine.' Togas served as a fine dining experience for visitors to the area and a popular place to celebrate special occasions and date nights for locals. It exuded a romantic ambiance, and was featured in magazines such as 'Sunset' and 'Northwest Lifestyles' as well as travel guides such as 'Forbes' and 'AAA.'
In 2009 after 14 years, Toga and Lisa decided to change things up in order to spend more time with their kids. They reopened as Toga's Soup House in June of 2009. Instead of being a fine dining establishment, it now had the face of a casual breakfast and lunch hangout, featuring soups, salads, and sandwiches as the restaurant's main focus. With this change came a professional baker from Seattle, who hand makes all of Toga's freshly baked goods.
Over the years, Togas has expanded beyond just the menu, delicous as it is. They offer cooking classes and occasional events at their restaurant such as wine nights, jagerstein nights and nights where you can prepare your own food on 500 degree granite stone hot plates. Check the Special Events tab on their website for events and details.
Togas also celebrates Oktoberfest at the end of September, using "Seattle's Famous Uli Lengenberg Famous Sausage," along with a variety of German bratwursts, with homemade sauerkraut, fresh in-house baked pretzels and German draught Paulaner Beer from the city of Munich.
Togas also takes part in Port Angeles's Crab Festival in mid-October, serving 150 gallons, give or take, of their homemade soups, including, clam chowder, tomato bisque, and fresh Dungeness crab bisque.
Toga is a great chef and you will love his food, plus he is always hospitable and provides great ambiance for his customers to ensure that everyone will have an excellent dining experience at his restaurant.
In January 2015, an espresso menu was added to Toga's drive through window, located at the rear of the main restaurant. Access is easy-in, easy-out with a circular drive. Turn south on Laurel Avenue, and in one block, turn right on W. Motor Avenue.
During the season of Covid, while the restaurant itself is closed for in-house seating, the full menu is available from this drive-up window. Call ahead, place your order, and then pick it up. A good friend and I did this recently, and then took our lunches to the Port Angeles waterfront, eating while catching up with events in each other's lives.
I visited Togas Soup House during the Covid-19 pandemic, so sadly I could not experience the atmosphere of the restaurant properly. However, I had one of their half sandwich meals, the 'Ultimate Reuben' and a small salad with blue cheese dressing. They were both delicious, and I would definitely recommend the 'Ultimate Reuben' sandwich if you like Reuben sandwiches as much as I do. The service was also very good, the girl who was working the drive up/walk up window was really nice. The owner's wife brought out the food quickly and she was also really friendly.
I am looking forward to a next time! I want to try the Greek salad and one of their soups, they looked equally amazing as what I had during my recent visit.
