Drove down to Bellevue to do some wine tasting in Woodinville, enjoy the Bellevue Club and visit friends. Had many wonderful experiences, some planned, others like Gilbert's just luck. Friends suggested we do Sunday breakfast at the 520 Bar and Grill in Old Bellevue.... mistake.
Had a light breakfast at the 520 which was quite ordinary then stumbled across Gilbert's. A jazz trio was playing on a sunny Sunday morning, fresh bagels were everywhere and the Jewish deli vibe made it impossible for us not to step in, have a bagel and coffee and soak up the scene.
We may have arrived at the best possible time on the best possible day but we will return on our next trip as there is a great blend of food, people, tradition, music, atmosphere.
