Perhaps this was the most delicious meal of the weekend:
We stopped in North Bend for lunch on the way to Snoqualmie Pass; once again we were on a quest for snow. I remembered that George’s bakery does the cookies for our favorite Seattle Christmas tree farm, Christmas Creek and I saw that the restaurant wasn’t much of a detour off the I-90. The cafe is charmingly kitschy with aprons hanging off the ceiling and cookie cutters and news clippings adorning the walls.
I immediately noticed the mega donuts.
And the girl behind the counter pointed out an even bigger cake-sized donut-delight that someone had ordered for their 21st. If you ever need a donut for a birthday cake, George’s bakery is definitely the place to get one. We chose two regular-sized donuts and some apple bread for our next-day’s breakfast (oh, get the apple bread!) and ordered lunch.
And this is where I fell in love, because I’ve never had bonus pie with my order ANYWHERE!!! The hubby’s quiche also came with a little dish of pie and a scrumptious loaf-apparently the quiche is really popular too. So I really can’t wait to venture here again because we had a really wonderful meal. In the summer this will be a great stop after hiking in the area.
And yes, we found snow in Snoqualmie Pass!
There was a dumping more snow here than we saw a few short weeks ago on our way to Suncadia and kids were sledding EVERYWHERE. So hopefully we’ll be back here to ski and live up the last few weeks of winter, because it is definitely feeling spring-ish in Seattle right now. (Not that we’re complaining, at all.)
