How I heard of this place: Through Tahirih’s raving review of the truffle oil mac ‘n cheese and deviled eggs with bacon. It was already on my list of restaurants to do when I was reminded of it in the January 2010 issue of Seattle Magazine, where it won recognition for the best “grand slam” breakfast in Seattle.
Type of cuisine: An adventurous twist on comfort food.
Ambiance: Busy and cozy inside. The service was top notch – with the perfect amount of wait-staff attentiveness without going overboard. The food was served quickly and tasted fresh and made to order. Perfect for a casual date or dining with a few friends. Limit parties to about four to six, unless you are able to make a reservation. (No reservations taken for weekend brunch.)
What I ordered: Table 219 benedict – two poached eggs over potato cakes made with smoked gouda and canadian bacon and topped with a creamy tomato, mushroom sauce and served with toast; a side order of French toast – rustic bread dipped in egg batter and topped with the day’s fruit selection: pear and served with real maple syrup. My dining companion ordered the award-winning (according to the January 2010 Seattle Magazine Best Breakfasts) Seattle slam which included two pancakes of the day: peanut butter with banana slices, eggs any style: sunny side up, and bacon (our choice between that or chicken sausage).
What I loved: The French toast. It was light and crispy without being drenched in egg batter and served with perfectly glazed pears. The peanut butter buttermilk pancakes with banana slices was an amazing addition to the gorgeous spread.
Why I loved it: The melding of gorgeous flavors, each menu item more scrumptious than the one before. It was a menu worth repeating. But I have so many more things to try!
Cost: mid-range $15 and under
