Sometimes it seems like I’m passing through or by the small town of Cle Elum nearly every time I get behind the wheel. Located right alongside Interstate 90 on the eastern slopes of the Cascade Mountains, this is a very convenient place to stop for fuel, a bite to eat, or even just to look around and explore.
Cle Elum has a fun atmosphere and is very much the small mountain town it seems to be. When you go there you can explore both the historical attractions and the beautiful scenery at the same time. You can also get some great tasting food too.
I’m a breakfast lover and was n the mood for a nice hearty breakfast meal when I came rolling into Cle Elum. The problem was, it was also a little after noon by the time I got there. I was resigned to having a burger or some other quick food choice before getting back on the freeway but through the use of a very popular app, I found the Cottage Cafe.
The Cottage Cafe is a very friendly place in Cle Elum and it has a relaxed atmosphere that fits right in with the city. The payoff for me? They serve breakfast all… day… long. (If this were being broadcast on the radio or TV, this is where the sound of a chorus of angels would be inserted.) I’m going to say that one more time. They serve breakfast all… day… long.
I chose the ham and cheese omelet and it was the right move. The rest of us were still able to get lunch food, why though when breakfast was available, I’ll never know. Everyone was extremely happy with what they’d gotten and it must’ve been good as it all disappeared off the plate so fast.
I drive by Cle Elum a lot and I’d bet good money that this is not the last time I eat at the Cottage Cafe.
