Geraldine’s Counter (Seattle, WA)

Seattle is similar to Vancouver in the way that it is a city of neighbourhoods. Our tourist destination this day was The Museum of Flight, and it’s location south of downtown Seattle led me to finding a breakfast spot in a neighbourhood I had never heard of before – Columbia City. This shows what I know, as after a little research, I discovered that it is deemed one of Seattle’s “hottest” and most diverse neighbourhoods. The business district is a charming strip of galleries, shops, yoga studios, and restaurants nestled in historic buildings, surrounded by mostly single-family, bungalow-style homes. A real small-town vibe.

Geraldine’s Counter has a similar feel – warm and welcoming as soon as we stepped in the door. Their all-day breakfast menu serves comfort food, with a few twists, executed at a high level. My Bacon, Egg, and Arugula Sandwich with tomato and aioli on a sourdough batard was delish. I am always amazed how the basic ingredients of bacon, eggs, and bread can be transformed from dish to dish, place to place.

This spot is popular and for very good reason.
