The Best Brunch Spots



I'm not one to neglect any designated meal time, but some days call for combining two meals into one. And who doesn't love brunch?! It's a perfect excuse to sleep in and get a later start to the day.

One goal Matt and I made this year is to get brunch together after church every Sunday. It gives us a purposeful time that's set aside to talk and slow the day down, and it gives us an excuse to eat some pretty delicious meals!

Last week we ate at Alexa's, a cafe in Downtown Bothell right by our apartment. It's bomb! This week on our way home from church, we called my parents to meet us at another classic place, The Rusty Pelican, in Edmonds. We ate here the morning after our wedding; it's one of those places that just is all around amazing! The food is always good, you can sit back with a hot coffee and people watch out the windows, and the ambiance is wonderful. It also has one of our favorite meals EVER. It's called the Santa Fe Burrito (pictured below) and is filled with potato, cheese, bacon, onion, and comes with a side of sour cream, salsa & avocado. So tasty!



One of the many fun reasons it is so great living in the area we do, is that we are so close to every major city around us. Kirkland, Bellevue, and Seattle are all just a short drive away, and they offer so many places for us to experience & eat! I have tried and loved Deru Market in Kirkland, as well as Portage Bay in Seattle, and Mr. West Cafe Bar in Seattle too (they have the best grilled cheese ever)!

Anywhere I can cozy up and fill up on yummy,
home-cooked tasting food is good with me
