Pete’s Egg Nest Review

Have you ever had that hankering? I mean the I-must-have-it-now-or-I-will-be-a-cranky-pants-all-day hankering? I am sure we all get that one time or another. Well for me this is what I was experiencing one Saturday morning. The hankering was for a good old fashioned homemade breakfast that wasn’t made at home by me. To our surprise it was not easy for us to find a breakfast joint at that moment in our area. Seems like that is something that is not readily available in Seattle area, or we thought. After a quick search on Urbanspoon we came across “Pete’s Egg Nest” and decided to give it a try.

Talk about a humble establishment. Pete’s Egg Nest is tucked away on Greenwood Ave. with little flash. I think we almost missed it when we were looking for it. But when we walked in the restaurant was buzzing with lots of people filling up the seats.

We were instantly ushered inside and led to our seats, which we felt lucky to snag so quickly. We checked out the menu and it was instantly clear what I wanted. I chose a bacon omelet with hash browns, and Mel quickly picked the Butter Rum French Toast (how awesome is that?) with eggs sunnyside up and a side of bacon (considering she is a vegetation it became my side of bacon hehe).

The portions were awesome! And the food tasted fantastic. This was clearly a place that is about the food and not the flashy of the restaurant (seems to be a trend in Seattle huh?)

Another great highlight of Pete’s Egg Nest is the wait staff. They were friendly and engaging, enhancing the atmosphere of a family restaurant. We asked the waitress about the staff and it turns out that Pete, his wife, and sons were working that day. The waitress was the only non-family member who wasn’t working that day, and she had been there for 15 some odd years. How about that, talk about a group of people I don’t mind supporting in our community!

  2. Not sure if you live in the Greenwood area/NW Seattle, but a couple other great breakfast spots nearby are Georgia’s Greek restaurant on 85th between Third and Eighth. Think they serve breakfast until 3 pm on weekends. Great eggs and omelettes with a Greek twist – warm pita bread instead of toast. Also very tasty breakfasts at the Wild Mountain Cafe on 85th, just a few blocks east of 15th. Cinnamon rolls to die for! But Pete’s is a classic.
