( – Ballard neighborhood, Seattle, Washington

How I heard of this place: Yelp. Looking for a brunch spot, new to us, with an intriguing menu and within walking distance, I found this joint. Glad I did.

Type of cuisine: Farm to Neighborhood, their local slogan, they offer (for brunch) a small selection of each skillets, frittatas, and house-made biscuit sandwiches, accompanied by coffees, juices, and a full bar.

Ambiance: We entered to a daylight-lit room with large painting and plenty of neighborhood seating at tables set against booths at the wall,

a bar area for the 21+,

and slim dining room with velvety seats and hardwood floors.

The open kitchen allows patrons to see their meals being prepared and their chefs at work.

The dining room offers seating, mostly for smaller parties of up to four, although tables at the wall seem to be able to come together in order to accommodate slightly larger groups. (Reservations recommended to save yourself the wait time.)

Rustic and simple bar creates a true midwestern bar feel.

What I ordered: To start, small, freshly squeezed his and hers grapefruit juices ($2.50 each),

and the Brunswick Biscuit with Roasted Banana ($12), peanut butter and bacon to share.

Our dining companion chose another biscuit sandwich for her main entrée: House Smoked Ham ($15) with Apricot Jam, Gruyere, Fried Egg and the same, amazingly fried breakfast potatoes.

For my husband, the Hunter’s Breakfast ($14) with two eggs (scrambled), bacon, and grilled bread. An additional side of sausage patty ($5) to accompany.

For me, one of the highly recommended frittatas, the Smoky Bacon & White Cheddar ($14) with avocado, toast,

and a side of breakfast potatoes.

Our glorious meal ended with a serving of coffee from the French Press, accompanied by cream and sugar in the raw.

On a return visit, 28 May 2017Out to brunch with friends, it was high time we returned to this lovely, little, neighborhood spot for a meal. Today’s amazingly tantalizing dish featured a brisket Benedict ($15), which, somehow, I could not turn down!

What I loved: Among the four of us, the breakfast potatoes took center stage. The biscuits, soft and buttery, the bacon crisped to perfection, the coffee non-acidic and wonderfully satisfying after a satisfying meal. It was a visit well worth repeating.

Why I loved it: Simple food, prepared well, utterly satisfying…And a visit you’ll wish to repeat again and again.

Cost: Average ($10 – $18 per brunch entrée)
