KAFE (104.1 FM, "KAFE 104.1", pronounced "café") is a 60 kW radio station located and licensed in Bellingham, Washington, USA, transmitting from Mount Constitution on Orcas Island. KAFE is run by the Cascade Radio Group, owned by Saga Communications with the broadcast license held by Saga Broadcasting, LLC.

KAFE serves Northwest Washington with a strong signal that reaches into Vancouver, British Columbia and Victoria, Canada and also reaches into Seattle's northern suburbs, and parts of the Olympic Peninsula.

Since changing format and call letters on November 1, 1989, KAFE became an adult contemporary radio station.

The station was formerly known as KERI-FM in the 1970s, broadcasting a country music format and as KNWR-FM with a rock music format from 1979 to 1989.

Morning hosts Dave Walker and Shari Matthews have been on-air together since November 2000.

Program Director Ken Richards and Scotty VanDryver round out the airstaff, with syndicated evening host Delilah on Sunday through Friday nights.

KAFE swapped frequencies with CHHR 104.1 on January 14, 2010 at 7:30 AM. This is following CHHR-FM and KAFE's approved requests with the CRTC and the FCC, respectively, to swap frequencies, in order to reduce interference between KAFE and KMCQ 104.5 Covington, Washington near Seattle.
