(thewildmountaincafe.com) – Crown Hill neighborhood, Seattle, Washington

How I heard of this place: A number of years ago, a decade at least, a good friend recommended Wild Mountain Cafe. When we moved into the neighborhood, I happened by it; then again, and again, until finally, I remembered to suggest it when my sister wanted to take me out for a Mother’s Day brunch.

Type of cuisine: A neighborhood eatery, featuring house-made breakfast items – in savory and sweet – that will satisfy any craving. From breakfast burritos, migas and cinnamon rolls, to Benedicts, scrambles, mac & cheese, waffles and pancakes, to French toast and garlic potato cakes. “We make your order from scratch so let us know if you have dietary restrictions! We can omit the dairy, go gluten free or make many other alterations for you. We will bend over backwards to create something you can enjoy! All you have to do is ask us!”

Ambiance:Wild Mountain Cafe  was opened in 2002 by owner/operator, Connie Stone to offer a friendly, casual, neighborhood restaurant in Crown Hill.

Inside this neighborhood home-cum-restaurant, welcomes patrons into its bright, yellow rooms, complete with mismatched furniture,

a fireplace,

and coffee maker!

The pew-bench offers an intriguing twist on creating a hallway behind the seating area and the front door.

Restrooms, quaintly mirrored and decorated are found just beyond the dining area.

And cool, mosaic tables are available for seating throughout the various rooms of the establishment.

The featured artist, we were happy to discover, Doug Bensch created and displayed some of his whimsical art; we enjoyed each piece up close after our meal.

What I ordered: For my little one, the Build Your Own Breakfast ($6.75) with one (really?) scrambled egg, a garlic potato cake and two half-slices of French toast.

My sister braved The Vince ($12.25), weirdly delicious! eggs scrambled with chicken sausage, green chiles, pineapple & cheddar; gets salsa, sour cream & refried beans topped with seasoned feta cheese…no really! Just try it!

For me, the Eggs Benedict ($13.75): this is what we’re known for! an English muffin topped with poached eggs*, Canadian bacon & our made-from-scratch Hollandaise! Comes with one of our famous roasted garlic potato cakes & a cup of chopped fresh fruit.

What I loved: The garlic potato cakes. And, the weirdly delicious Vince! What? I’d seriously get it – and certainly enjoy it – again.

Why I loved it: A quaint,grandma’s lair serving up delicious breakfast fare for breakfast, brunch and lunch in a friendly and warm atmosphere.

Cost: Average ($10 – $15 per breakfast entree)
