Volunteer Park Cafe
There are so many places in Seattle I repeatedly hear about and the Volunteer Park Cafe is one of those places. Since we have never visited before, we made it a point to stop by last Saturday for brunch. When we arrived, I was surprised to see just how far the line to order stretched out the door. Once inside, the large, bustling communal tables gave the place a real sense of community. Parking was a breeze, the food was delicious and there were so many tantalizing options on the menu I am certain we will be back soon. I ordered the Bacon, Arugula and Fontina quiche, Cameron enjoyed the pulled pork sandwich, Jasper had a Cherry Almond scone and we all fought over the Chocolate Chip Toffee cookie.
The best thing about these two is their love for each other. They are always laughing, playing and keeping the mood light and fun. Recently, Jasper has taken to cleaning up. He likes to take napkins, diaper wipes or dishcloths and scrub the floor or clean the table. It is so fun to see how his interests and the things he does change on a weekly if not daily basis. This new habit of cleaning makes total sense because he is constantly seeing us clean up his many messes throughout the day. Such a little helper he is becoming!
I recently read the following review in Seattle Met : "No place reveals Seattle's small-town soul like the Volunteer Park Cafe on a Saturday morning." After having visited I would whole heartedly agree with this description.
