New restaurant coming to the Camas Hotel

Serving contemporary American cuisine, new dining spot set to open on April 1

A new restaurant serving “contemporary American cuisine” will soon occupy the empty dining spot on the ground floor of the Camas Hotel in downtown Camas.

Hotel owners Terri and Dave Sauer, say they’ve signed a lease with the owners of the new restaurant, which will use local ingredients that define the Pacific Northwest.

“The new restaurant (owners) anticipate opening April 1,” Terri said.

Miss Nola’s Cafe, owned by Tim and Melissa McCusker, occupied the space, at 401 N.E. Fourth Ave., on the hotel’s southwest corner, from October of 2015 through Sept. 1, 2017, and had previously owned another restaurant, called Harvest, in that same location for two years, before opening Miss Nola’s.

The couple closed Miss Nola’s Cafe to focus on their other restaurant, Feast 316, which opened on New Year’s Eve of 2014 at 316 N.E. Dallas St., also in downtown Camas.

The Sauers purchased the Camas Hotel and building at 405 N.E. Fourth Ave., for $2.31 million from former owners, Tom and Karen Hall, in August of 2016. The property includes 24 hotel rooms, a manager’s apartment and two retail spaces, including the vacant restaurant spot and a store currently leased by Allure Boutique.
