“It's All Good! You Can't Go Wrong Here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Been here at least 50 times and everything I've tried is delicious. The owners, Peter and Marilyn, have owned several successful restaurants in Chicago and Seattle but seem to put their heart into the Edmonds location. The restaurant is great for family, solo, business, any kind of meal. Great for events, too! In fact, we're having our wedding brunch there. Try the pumpkin praline pancakes in fall and the unique wraps & salads anytime.

“Amazing Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

The lunch was wonderful. A crab and shrimp Louie and a Monte Christo. Really? Where do you find lunches like that. The dressing for the Louie was spectacular. Im used to getting a standard 1000 Island dressing, but this was unique and did not over power the seafood. Very well done.

“Had hoped for more”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

Good location and warm charming feel inside. Inattentive service and average food. Portion sizes are enormous and the menu beyond extensive. I would prefer the menu be pared down and more attention be paid to making each item less typical. Nothing really wrong at either breakfast or lunch, but nothing really memorable either. Applaud them for being the good community citizens they are.

Good food (table had omelettes, crepes, benedict and everyone was happy).

Good service (very friendly, attentive).

Good value (no one ate everything).
