George’s Place for big fat greek breakfast

George’s Place is a busy restaurant in downtown Kirkland, Washington. I walked into this place because the restaurant that I was originally going to go for brunch was closed that day.

This place is pretty big, and busy. Once I got seated (almost right away after I walked in), I noticed there’s always people walking around, in and out the restaurant. That’s a good sign I guess, to have a active crowd in a restaurant.

I ordered the Corinthian Omelet ($11.99) with fresh fruits, while my friends ordered the Chicken Fried Steak and Eggs($11.99), and Lumber Jack Plate ($10.99).

My omelet has gryo meat, roma tomatoes, onions, bell peppers and feta cheese in it; not the typical ingredients you’d find in a typical omelet, and it was tasty. And best of all, I didn’t even eat it with ketchup because it came with tzatziki sauce, yum! The toasts it came with had a fair amount of butter on them, but it didn’t taste too greasy, it was good. I also really liked my fresh fruits. I thought they were going to be one of those typical pre-made fruit salads, but they weren’t. There were grapes, strawberries and oranges, all were very fresh and sweet. They gave a really refreshing taste to my breakfast.

The one thing I didn’t like was their coffee. It was watered down, pretty bad, and the cup was sticky. It was probably from the waiter’s hand. The table were still a little dirty from previous customers. It didn’t give me a complete feeling of cleanliness for the restaurant.

This place seemed like a local favorite. There were quite a few families out for breakfast here. One guy who sat at the bar near our booth gave a big praise for the restaurant to our waiter saying how much he loved the place when he’s just about to leave. The waiter took it rather nonchalantly, like he hears it all the time. A little cocky perhaps? Yah, the waiter didn’t give me a good impression, with his sticky hands and all.

This is a good place to go if you want something a little different from the traditional breakfast foods. The portions are big, and the environment is relaxing, good place to visit on Sunday mornings.

    This place was good. I’d go back, but I’d need to scope it out first and find the optimal time to go like with Facing East.
