Staff reports

Every Saturday evening though October, M’s Coffeehouse in Markleeville will hold a salmon barbecue from 5 p.m. until the salmon runs out.

Marsha Bennett, owner of the restaurant, said the salmon barbecue has been popular with patrons because the salmon is fresh.

“It’s just incredible. The salmon is so good and fresh,” she said.

The dish is served with pasta salad, green salad and bread and drinks are available. Cost is $12.95 for a large portion. A king portion is also available.

The salmon is barbecued over mesquite and charcoal, and cook Ed Moss makes a special butter and “massive” garlic sauce for the salmon, Bennett said.

The coffeehouse is located at 38 Montgomery St. in Markleeville, south of Gardnerville in Alpine County.
