This place is small so weekends can get busy. The menu is chalked full of great chow, and if you like cinnamon rolls you won't be disappointed. Go hungry, you'll love it.

I loved the atmosphere of this quirky restaurant, especially the modern, dimensional wall art for sale. We each had a different breakfast, but the standout star for me were the delicious garlic mashed potato cakes. One of my sons had the largest breakfast burrito I have ever seen!

Had a great scramble breakfast! Atmosphere is very homey! It has the feel of an old neighborhood house. Good service too.

Passed this place so many times without going in and when I finally did I could have kicked myself for not going in sooner. This charming restaurant is housed in an old Seattle craftsman-style house so you'll be sitting in one of the back "bedrooms" or entryway living areas. The nooks and crannies all add to the charm, along with... More

Wow! I love Wild Mountain so much. I used to live in the neighborhood and eat here a lot, now it's a bit of a drive...but still very much worth it! A group of us came for brunch and we're seated cozily in the back. Service was excellent and food delicious. The eggs Benedict is by far my favorite dish.... More

Good breakfast burrito. They are famous for their cinnamon roll made only on weekends. Cute place and is a very homely environment. Strongly recommend.

Varied menu, certain to have something for all. Small place but only a very short wait on a weekday at 9:00am. Comfortable and a bit unique with most breakfasts hovering around $10 or so.

Went there (Ballard) based on others' reviews and were not disappointed. Not a lot of space, maybe 10 tables for 2-4. Very friendly staff. Locals walk in, street parking possible. (Steep stairway up if walking is a problem). A business pair or two, but mostly couples with an occasional young child. You will get good service, a good breakfast (vegetarian/vegan... More

House turned restaurant that at least during winter, when I visited, lacked appeal. Outside appearance was gloomy with the dry garden and fusia house, but I expected a transformation on the inside and that was not the case. It had a very elemental setting that is understated in the cafe website. The website looks great. Yet, what they lack in... More

Funky old house conversion with funky furnishings. Tightly spaced tables in small rooms, but - oh, the food. Delicious. Very busy place on weekends,
