Like my last post, there has been so much that has happened in the time that has passed, I can't possibly catch up in one post. So I have decided to jump back into the old weekly routine of:
This week we went to 5 Spot, a diner located on the South end of Upper Queen Anne. I have been here once before- it was years ago but I STILL remember what I ordered: the Tropical French Toast, battered with fine flake coconut, drizzled with coconut syrup, and topped with carmelized pineapple and whipped cream. I once ordered something similar in Hawaii and it fell short of this delicious 5 Spot plate. But alas, this was a temporary creation of theirs and was not on the menu when we visited yesterday. However, this was:
Blueberry pancakes with warm Vermont Maple Syrup. I like my blueberries small and packed with flavor (as opposed to overgrown watery blueberries, the result of chemical fertilizers). These blueberries were tender and bursting with flavor, a suitable amound spread throughout the inside of the cakes. These are my kind of blueberry pancakes! I loved them. Luke ordered a savory plate, as usual, but this plate was anything but ordinary:
The Ranch Hand: a stuffed crepe folded over black beans and pico with enchilada sauce and eggs of your choice on top. The flavor combinations happening here were unexpected but worked perfectly to compliment each other.
As you saw in the first photo, we had no trouble cleaning our plates. We will definitely go again and bring our out-of-town visitors here when in need of a big breakfast. Perhaps Seattle's best breakfast diner?... Only time and more Sweet Breakfast experiences will tell!
