Everything served for the breakfast meal is exceptional. Omlettes, pancakes, burritos, and scramblers are excellent. Portions are huge and can be shared. Coffee served with thick cream is an experience. Wonderful baked goods to top everything off. Long wait on the weekend but worth it.

Well this is good ol' home cookin at its best! Great omelets! Great waffles! Great pancakes!! Great specials!! They serve lunch also but we always get breakfast and love the crab omelet!! This Edmonds location you can find a seat typically but during farmers market may be difficult (Saturday's).

Awesome! Very friendly and attentive staff and VERY quick to wait on us. Coffee cup was never empty, staff had smiles on their faces and food arrived in < 20 minutes from being seated. Three of us ordered breakfast - corned beef hash, eggs, sausage, bacon and homemade hash browns. Even better was the homemade jam! Way too much food... More

This really is just a dressed up diner. Staff were nice and food was fine, but, with NYC as a dining cost benchmark, it was expensive; , especially for food that was just ok - nothing remarkable. I was a little turned off overhearing the waitress "pushing" the muffins on a family that had clearly ordered a lot of food... More

This place is only open for breakfast and lunch and has a bakery element as well. The breakfast meals are large and flavorful and lunch looks amply good. I always eat breakfast. The bread is delicious and coffee a plenty. Street parking is available.

My family took me out to the Rusty Pelican for a birthday brunch. The menu had many choices for adults and for children. For groups over 6, you can make reservations which are highly recommended as on this Sunday morning, the line was out the door! Service excellent and many kinds of waffles or main dish eggs and pancakes. The... More

The food is very good and the help is friendly. Only open for breakfast and lunch. I would recommend you trying this Edmonds restaurant. It seems to be quite popular.

Met a friend here for lunch (though we ordered breakfast food which is served all day). We had two women waiting on us as one was in training. Both were very friendly and attentive to our needs. They were flexible with our requested substitutions (although we did pay for the upgrade in pancakes...more on that later!). The restaurant wasn't too... More

I can really not discredit the food. What I have an issue with is their pricing. If you want an extra piece of toast it will cost you $3.25. Even for artisan breads that is an absolute ripoff, come on! Then a regular cup of tea is $3.10. Come on - at one of the finest department stores that have... More

Our extended family of eight shared tastes of our meals - all were excellent! We are a family of cooks and admittedly not tolerant of anything less than excellent restaurant food; the Rusty Pelican did not disappoint. Although the cafe can gey a bit crowded it is well worth the visit.

Thank Christine B
