As we were planning a trip to Seattle to visit family six months prior to the trip, I kept hearing glorious stories about the grilled cheese on raisin bread that this "awesome restaurant" on Whidbey Island made.
Making my second trip out to Seattle and never having heard of Whidbey Island, I knew my family would know the best place to go for a great sandwich. And man...what a HOME RUN it was going here.
4 Adults and 2 children age 3 visited The Braeburn and all walked away satisified. From the unique atmosphere of the wall decorations and outhouse key hanging on the wall, to the warmness of those who greeted and served us our meal, I could see why we had a long wait on an early Sunday afternoon to get in there.
The twin boys (age 3) enjoyed Fluffernutters (peanut butter and marshmallow fluff) or grilled toasted wheat bread which all of the adults loved as we cleaned up their scraps. I enjoyed the pot roast sandwich with caramelized onions on a homemade roll and washed it down with a hearty bowl of vegetable soup. My fiancee enjoyed the grilled cheese on raisin bread (complete with smoked bacon strips) and it truly was one of the sandwiches I've ever tasted.
The menu is diverse and the ingredients were extremely fresh. PLUS the cost was very reasonable and I'd say to expect Greatness from a place that is very unassuming from the outside. A definite place to visit on your trip to Whidbey island
