Hit up the brown bag cafe for a late breakfast before heading to Lake Washington for some jet ski fun.. massive cinnamon rolls, good fresh food and great service. Sadly, Brown Bag Cafe is closed due to a fire and hasn't reopened.

After years of passing by the very crowded parking lot of this nondescript eatery, we had to break down and see why all the activity, and why all the gushing reviews. Simple answer: lots of food, lots of people, and reasonably timely and attentive service....More
