Kirkland, WA 98033
This homey, comfortable café located in Kirkland’s bustling Rose Hill neighborhood has earned a real reputation for itself as one of the city’s most satisfying places to grab a bite to eat. Opened in 2009, this is truly a family business – owner Greg Waham employs lots of “cousins” to wait tables, wash dishes, and more. After your meal here, you’ll feel like family too. Although they serve food all day, regulars know that breakfast is where the kitchen really shines. Their potato pancakes are spectacular – thin, crispy and incredibly flavorful, served with delicious applesauce. Omelettes are a popular choice, with the prime rib version stuffed full of amazingly tender, perfectly-seasoned meat. The prime rib is available in a number of other versions, including a great egg scramble. If you’re looking for a little Southern flavor, their chicken-fried steak is also incredible. Portions are massive and prices are very reasonable, so bring the whole family.
