We expected the restaurant on the main arterial between civilization and Mt. Rainier National Park to be jam packed Memorial Day, but we managed to get in before folks woke up. Only a few families with small children were spread out around the place, and there was a happy hush of flapjack feeding going on. I had coffee with real cream, served in a real cup (not a mug!) and saucer within minutes, and our servers were clocked at regular 4-minute visits with either ice water or hot coffee. I ordered a Bacon and Aged Sharp Cheddar Cheese Omelet with a side of the House pancakes and was surprised when the 4-egg monster arrived, unadorned, in front of me. WOW! It was BIG! The difference is whipping the eggs as opposed to just irritating them before they are cooked, as I have had 3- and 4-egg omelets elsewhere where the eggs were poured onto the hot grill and let spread paper thin before being coaxed around their various fillings. Not here, though. The large fold of fluffy eggs held a generous portion of sharp white cheddar which was entirely melted around the chunks of chewy, savory bacon. Ahhh. The place was filling up as we were leaving, but we will return. The menu includes a wide selection of pancakes which can be served in gluten-free versions (blueberry, pecan and granola have been tasted by yours truly and were truly worth the effort). The staff can be rushed by the crowds, but any place that is so family-friendly usually is. Tip the staff generously and smile on your way out. It's a very nice place to eat.
