You won’t find a busier or more recommended cafè in the city of Centralia than Berry Fields Cafè. Just voted “Best Restaurant” and “Best Lunch” for the Best of Lewis County, it’s easy to see that the community has proclaimed its love of this family-owned and operated cafè.

It will be 4 years next April that Shane and Nicole Noel have owned Berry Fields Cafè. Shane Noel has worked for U.S. Foods, one of America’s leading foodservice distributors for over 23 years and was the food purveyor for 15 years for the previous owners of the cafè. When the opportunity arose they decided to purchase the restaurant from the original owner. Their sons Bailey and Bradley are bakers and also work in the restaurant. “We are family owned and operated, we all work together as bakers, servers and management. It can be hard work, but it’s rewarding,” commented Nicole Noel.

The Noels have kept true to the original spirit of Berry Fields, making their fresh desserts from scratch, but they have added an early dinner menu. During the Covid restrictions Berry Fields offered take out dinner until 7 (when the dining room was closed) and it was so popular that they have kept a few dinner items to serve before they close at 5 pm now. You can order Chicken Alfredo, Chili, and Meatloaf between 4 – 5 pm if you are craving an early dinner. Looking back at that time their dining room was closed Noel stated, “We felt very supported by the community during Covid restrictions. Our customers stuck with us and supported us through that difficult time.”

With fresh ingredients, generous portions, and a love for good food, it is easy to see why the community keeps coming back for more at Berry Fields Cafè.
