Seattle is filled with great things to see and do like the Space Needle, Seattle Aquarium, Pacific Science Center, Ride the Ducks, and the Seattle Great Wheel. Another way that Seattle can show you a good time is when you take advantage of the tons of great restaurants that are there.
One of my all time favorite places to eat in Seattle, and one I was able to return to again just recently, is the Portage Bay Cafe. We were heading through town on our way over to the Olympic Peninsula, and seeking a good breakfast spot before catching the ferry, we decided it was about time for a return visit. The Portage Bay Cafe has a few locations. We chose the one in Ballard that morning.
I had a berry pancake concoction that was simply awesome. Also at our table was French toast and a delicious looking omelet that almost made me regret not having ordered it for myself. But hey, you can’t go wrong with delicious pancakes topped with strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries.
It may have just been me but heading out across the water of Puget Sound that day with a full belly courtesy of the Portage Bay Cafe was one of the most relaxing ferry rides I’d ever taken. For me, this is totally one of those “Ol’ Reliable” breakfast spots. I always know I can go there and get a real special meal.
The Portage Bay Cafe serves lunch and dinner as well. I keep saying I’m going to get back and sample some of what they offer during that time of day too. I just can’t get past their incredible breakfasts though.
Maybe next time.
