Alki Cafe

How I heard of this place: Walk along the Alki waterfront, and you’re sure to spot the Alki Cafe’s bright purple, vibrant signage. Serving breakfast all afternoon? My husband wasn’t about to entertain any other idea.

Type of cuisine: American and Tex-Mex breakfast favorites, and beach-themed lunch entrees, including fish & chips, salads and chowder, pasta, sandwiches, burgers and more Tex Mex favorites (quesadillas, anyone?)

Ambiance: A short walk from the Alki Statue of Liberty, the Alki Cafe offers both indoor and outdoor seating options in pale-yellow rooms,

walls lined with artwork, or outdoors with vague views of the beach – stop sign and street signage more prominent. Music plays loudly overhead, and only a few patrons throughout the establishment makes it that much more noticeable.

What I ordered: In the mood for breakfast, and unable to steer my husband away from it, he selected the Chicken Fried Steak & scrambled Eggs ($10.99), chicken steak topped with country sausage gravy, two eggs; grilled russet Potatoes and buttered whole wheat toast.

I chose the Chilaquilis Tex-Mex Scramble ($10.99), eggs, chorizo, beef, green chilies, bell peppers, olives and corn tortilla strips, topped with jack and cheddar cheeses, served with white corn tortillas, sour cream and salsa.

Just to be “good” (according to my husband), we started with a side Caesar Salad ($5.99).

What I loved: The Caesar – a typical dressing-drenched pile of Romaine lettuce with ample shredded Parmesan and extra-crispy multigrain bread croutons. The potatoes, too, were a salty, savory hit with my tastebuds.

Why I loved it: Convenience.

Cost: Average to high ($10.99 – $12.99 per entree)
