Easter Brunch at Portage Bay Cafe

For Easter I ate brunch at Portage Bay Cafe.  They are a very popular breakfast and lunch place located at 391 Terry Ave. N in Seattle.  They have two other locations in the U-District and in Ballard.  The cafe was busy so we had to wait about forty minutes to be seated.  If you get bored waiting for your table, you can order a Mimosa or coffee at the bar and drink it in the lobby while you wait.  I loved the interior of the restaurant.  There were boats hanging upside down from the ceiling and the whole place was very bright, just what a brunch place should be like.  One of the neatest things about the place is the toppings bar which is has strawberries, blackberries, pears, whipped cream, nuts and granola which you can add to your pancakes or french toast.  Just take your heaping plate of pancakes and walk over to the station where an never ending table of toppings await.  The cafe serves all organic products and the orange juice is even fresh squeezed.  I'm glad I checked out Portage Bay Cafe because now I know why it's one of the most popular brunch places in Seattle.

I ordered the Bananas Foster French Toast.  Its three slices of challah french toast with housemade Myer's rum caramel sauce and sauteed organic, fair trade bananas.  I loved the rum, caramel sauce and the amount of it.  I was only able to polish off two pieces because they were so thick.  I did make it to the Toppings bar where I got some whipped cream, stawberries and blackberries.
