Britt-Marie’s Café and Wine Bar has been a fixture of Solano Avenue in Albany since 1983. In an intimate setting reminiscent of a European neighborhood café, we serve substantial portions of delicious, inexpensive fare.
The original owners, Jan and Britt-Marie (the restaurant’s namesake) Pazdirek created a menu which featured dishes from Eastern and Northern Europe. These selections have been enhanced by the current owner, Arthur Morfidis, who introduced more of a Mediterranean flavor to the menu with recipes from his native Greece when he purchased the restaurant in 1988.
You can complement your meal with a choice from our varied selection of domestic wine by the glass or bottle, or if you prefer, a draft or bottled beer. The atmosphere at Britt-Marie’s is warm, casual, and welcoming. Displays of art by local artists hang on the walls. Customers have their choice of sitting at a table or at the bar, where lively conversations often abound. The convivial atmosphere is furthered by the fact that Britt-Marie’s has always had a very loyal staff, many of whom have worked there for years and have come to know the customers well.
