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,

On a busy street with, up a ten cement stairs to the porch and the door leading to this home where the rooms have become a comfortable, excellent dining experience. There is even a full bar!! Perfect menu with plenty of choices, accommodating staff with the ability to adjust menu items to dietary needs, excellent coffee, quick service. Accommodates less... More

Okay, so it's just a few steps, but yes... Oh so worth the fun menu and quaint home-turned-restaurant fare! You know that Mom who used to let all the kids come hang out at their house? Yeah, well it's kinda like that! We went on a weekday morning, so there wasn't much crowd. I've driven by here many times and... More

If you decide to have breakfast at this restaurant on a weekend and do not arrive early you may have quite a long wait to be seated. Once seated service is usually pretty good and there is a decent variety of entrees offered for breakfast. The cinnamon rolls are excellent but as mentioned in earlier posts if you don't get...
