Many have said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so why not start the day off right with a farm-to-table breakfast at The Fireside?
My fiancé, Jake, and I decided to kick off a lazy winter weekend with breakfast at The Fireside and per usual, our meal did not disappoint. We started with Bloody Marys – delicious! One of the best either of us had enjoyed in a long time and the drink was topped off with all sorts of tasty garnishes including lemons, limes, onions, olives and dilly beans. As we waited for our breakfast, we basked in the views of Ludlow Bay, the Olympic Mountains, and otters swimming around the Marina docks.
Jake couldn’t decide between the Biscuits & Gravy or the Coast-to-Coast Omelet so he went with both. He enjoyed a half order of the fresh made biscuits and country style gravy with Finnriver farm fresh eggs. The sausage was delectable and the dish quickly became a new favorite of Jake’s.
The omelet was just as enjoyable. The eggs were a beautiful, golden yellow – the way should be, and were cooked to perfection. The omelet was accompanied with herbed country potatoes and Pane ‘dAmore toast. Jake said the sides were “the sugar on top”. Knowing the ingredients are local and in-season added a level of sophistication that cannot be ignored.
The whole breakfast menu sounded so tasty with dishes like Challah Pain Perdu, Chef Dan’s Eco-Granola and a seasonal Fruit Parfait, but I ended up deciding on the Old Fashioned Irish Steel Cut Oats. The oatmeal was slowly cooked in milk and topped with caramelized apples and brown sugar. This oatmeal is arguably the best oatmeal I have ever had and I thoroughly enjoyed every bite. To sum it up in one word, YUM.
Jake and I left The Fireside with full bellies and plans to bring back friends and family for breakfast. Chef Dan’s culinary creations are always delicious whether it’s breakfast at 9am or dinner at 6pm. No matter what meal – breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you choose to savor in at The Fireside you’ll be far from disappointed.
Breakfast is served at The Fireside from 7am to 11am, Monday through Saturday and Sunday Brunch is offered from 7am to 2pm. Make your reservation at 360.437.7412 or on Open Table.
