We visited Beach Cafe for breakfast which was a quiet morning with basic breakfast fare. Beach Cafe is located at The Woodmark Hotel with view of Lake Washington. The space is local cafe feel with comfort food that you would expect from a cafe. Nothing stands out to me on the menu but it was nice to stroll down and get a bite to eat from our stay at The Woodmark Hotel.
I noticed as the day was increasing ( we could see the patio from our room) their seating became limited even through the evening. The staff told us they have a great group of standing locals who frequent and keep them busy all year round. The feel was laid back and relxaed, nice place to sit on the patio if the weather is nice with a cocktail in hand and chill. Beach Cafe has a huge indoor seating space along with a fully stocked bar and espresso bar, outside they have plenty of seating as well for afternoon lunch watching the lake.
We both ordered the eggs benedict for our breakfast but this was not your traditional ham layered egg dish, they had other protein options (salmon & pork).
This was not my favorite eggs benedict I have had. The benedict sauce was a little on the thicker side and didnt really have much flavor. I’m using mopping up every last bit of hollandaise with the english muffin but not with this. My country potatoes were on the dry side, not soft centered I even questioned if they were previously frozen.
I was impressed with the amount of meat that came on both dishes, but I felt the salmon was a little on the saltier side. Usually ham that traditionally comes on an eggs benedict has that salt content that makes the dish balanced but I didn’t care for the salmon in this dish.
I would like to go back and try their lunch & happy hour menu, I have heard they have good sandwiches.
