Rusty Pelican is good, not great, breakfast place. Some dishes better than others. Enjoyed the omelets, but eggs benedict hollandaise sauce tastes like the kind made from a mix, not house made. Overall would consider it an "all right" breakfast place but not for entertaining guests -won't impress.

Big selection, but expensive. Nothing really special. Location is right in downtown Edmonds, close to stuff.

We frequently go here for breakfast on the week ends or lunch. They do a very good job - good variety - good service and reasonably priced. Excellent location - parking can be challenging at times but thru no fault of the Rusty Pelican.

A group of 4, stopped to have breakfast and it was great. The homemade biscuits & hash brown are perfect. The egg dishes amazing. It's a little pricy, but you get quality for the money. Looking forward to going back again. Loved it.

The Rusty Pelican is well-known among locals as one of THE BEST places to get Sunday Brunch. Their portions are hearty and they have a nice selection of food. You can pretty much have whatever tickles your fancy for breakfast. They also have a wide variety of mimosa-like drinks and TRUE Bloody Mary's with the full regalia (bacon, olives, onions,... More

We had a Christmas lunch with staff from work. For many of us it was the first time at the Rusty Pelican Cafe. The staff were helpful, pleasant and attentive. I had a breakfast meal and it was large...no way could I finish the pancakes that came with the meal. This was an enjoyable meal and I would return...be advised... More

The Rusty Pelican has a large breakfast menu of items to choose from. They have very good service, "endless good coffee" served with thick, real cream if you like cream in your coffee. They offer a large selection of freshly made pastries, delicious pancakes and breakfast skillets. I would describe their food as as a good, old fashioned American comfort... More

Went to a late breakfast early lunch in Edmonds WA. We ate at the Rusty Pelican. We were met by very friendly staff and seated immediately, but I understand it can be very busy on the weekend. My girlfriend had the Swedish pancakes with a blackberry compote. They were very good. I had the gyro and enjoyed it a lot.... More

Was really good! We waited 45 minutes though which is quite long for my liking but we heard only good things so we decided to stick it out! The coffee comes with fresh cream, super thick and delicious. The fresh orange juice was great. And we got our food within 10 min of ordering. The place was packed too. I... More
