(chowfoods.com/endolyne-joes) – “Located just south of scenic Lincoln Park and a short jaunt up the hill from the Fauntleroy Ferry Terminal serving Vashon Island, the “Eat at Joe’s” neon beckons passersby to drop in for breakfast, lunch or dinner any day of the week.” in the West Seattle neighborhood, Seattle, Washington

How I heard of this place: Joining friends from Burien for brunch on this New Year’s Day, it was suggested that we find them at ever-popular Endolyne Joe’s.

Type of cuisine: Joe’s jumps at breakfast, lunch and dinner daily with a tasty menu of updated American classics. We keep things interesting by taking the rest of the menu for a spin through the Americas each quarter.

While you might find yourself nestled in the bosom of Little Italy during the holidays, come spring you may be taking a turn tangoing through Buenos Aires. Summertime…well, summertime is Island time at Joe’s, where Mai Tais, Bonsai Pipelines and Longboard Lager are the favored tropical libations, perfect on a lingering, sultry afternoon on our deck.

Ambiance: A lively, bustling New Year’s morning welcomes patrons onto the waitlist, as diners complete their meals, give goodbye hugs and head off to meet 2018. Our table was seated at the back of the large, spacious restaurant, nearest the mini children’s area (little book shelf of books). At the entry, we are greeted by a large, hanging cow, its pasture and colleague reclining just beyond.

The bar, also full on this Monday morning, serves up adult-only beverages along with their meals, maintaining the same look and feel of the rest of the open space: brick accents in the wooden building, farm-like decor interspersed throughout.

The kitchen is clean, shiny and metallic, complete with diner bar for lone diners and those looking for a culinary show of sorts.

What I ordered: We started with a small, house-made cinnamon roll for the table to share, and coffees all around.

For my brunch, I chose the server-recommended Cajun Country Benedict ($13.75): a biscuit, split and topped with shaved Tasso ham, poached eggs, and Tabasco hollandaise, served with crushed red potatoes.

One friend of ours selected my second choice, the Morning Riser ($15.75): brown sugar-cider brined cottage bacon, shallots, leek and red pepper spiced potato pancake and two eggs over easy, served with a biscuit. He was immediately a fan, as were all of us.

My husband enjoyed the Pig in the Orchard Omelette ($13.00): house-made pork sausage, granny smith apples, caramelized onion and white cheddar cheese, served with crushed red potatoes and house-made biscuit.

For the final adult in our party, the Forager’s Scramble ($12.75): portobello, oyster and buttom mushrooms, Laura Chenel goat cheese, fresh snipped herbs and sweet onions, served with crushed red potatoes and toast.

Our little one opted for French Toast, off of the children’s menu, served with a slice of pineapple.

What I loved: The brown sugar-cider brined cottage bacon and red pepper spiced potato pancake truly had the biggest punch of taste, comfort and perfection. I do wish my Cajun Benedict had a kick, or hint of spice to it, knowing that would have made it jump right up there to being a favorite, but I can’t deny that the Morning Riser is what will bring us back.

Why I loved it: The atmosphere truly engages everyone on their visit to Endolyne Joe’s! The food is comparable to any of the Chow Foods establishments I have enjoyed, tasty, hearty and simple.

Cost: Average ($8.50 – $13.75 per brunch entree)
