The Fat Hen
Weekends call for brunch! My aunt recently moved back to Seattle from Bahrain where she was living for the past few years. Since returning, it's given me an additional brunch-mate, which I'm ecstatic about!
Saturday morning, we headed to The Fat Hen in Ballard. With only a few tables, there's always a mob of patrons waiting out front. Luckily, The Fat Hen is across the street from a quaint coffee shop and bakery - Honore Artisan Bakery, making the wait go by quickly with a great cup of coffee. I didn't get one, but there was a ham and cheese croissant at Honore that looked so fluffy and delicious! That's on my list for next time.
Once we made it into The Fat Hen, it's bright atmosphere is a cheery spot for brunch. I ordered a Camicia Egg Bake, which is made up of two eggs in tomato with basil & mozzarella. If you've ever wanted a margherita pizza without the dough and in breakfast format - this is your meal! It was unexpected and delicious! As with any brunch, I paired it with a cold brew.
My aunt went the healthier route, and ordered the House-made Granola with greek yogurt & seasonal fruit - yum!
Both options hit the mark, and looking around the small restaurant, it was easy to tell that all of the dishes were beautiful and looked tasty! Besides the initial wait (which is worth it), this is a definite go-to for a weekend brunch!
