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.
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).
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!
