Getting your hands on a good Sunday brunch here in Seattle a lot of the time means waiting, sometimes lengthy periods of time to get a table at your favorite spot. Though personally I am more then happy to wait a while to eat a fabulous afternoon brunch where I know the food is delicious and the people are nice. But, on the other hand, there are those times when you really don't want to mess with that at all.
Welcome to the Wild Wheat Bakery located in old town Kent Washington. Might as well spend your wait driving a short distance in your car to get an amazing meal in an atmosphere that has A LOT of character and movement! For those of you who are familiar with Old Town Kent Washington, you will know that the railway runs straight through it. Wonderful Wild Wheat perches its self quaintly along side the tracks.
While you're enjoying one of their specialty breakfasts, you suddenly feel your feet a rumblin, and all the glasses start a clankin.......... Then......... TOOOT TOOOT! Wild Wheat's large picturesque windows allow you to view the trains rolling by up close and personal, as well as frequently!
Since Curtis and I live south of the Big City in beautiful Des Moines, Wild Wheat is just a hop skip and a jump from our house, and its one of my favorite haunts on a lazy Sunday. Today I devoured yet again another Eggs Benedict, smothered in their house made lemon infused hollandaise sauce. Perched oh so happily upon 2 slices of their divine hazel nut current bread and lots of little bacon crumbles. It normally comes with a side of home fries, but I always opt for a bowl of fruit instead. Mmmmmm. Though I'm a huge fan of their Chai Latte, I took a picture of Curtis' Caramel Macchiato. It was much prettier then my cup of Non-Joe.
Take a look at some pictures of our brunch today. For those of you who attended our wedding last August, this is where we bought all our fancy bread for our bread and jam table.
