Eats (Market) Meets West (Seattle)

Eats Market Cafe - American Fare (3.5 Stars)

While running errands on Saturday in preparation for Ryan's "do-over" Holiday party, we stopped at Eats for a pre-shopping-blitz brunch. The atmosphere is "cafe" (though well-lit and clean) and it was packed the entire time we were dining.

The Eats menu features "handmade seasonal comforting foods and pastries that are nourishing for both the body and soul". Brioche French Toast, Fried Egg Sandwich with Bacon and Chevre, Market Veggie sandwich with herb cream cheese and pumpkin seeds, Warm Parmesan Herb Souffle, Chickpea Fries, and the Fallen Chocolate Souffle are just a few of the eclectic dishes that provide more obvious nods to the co-owners' graduation from culinary school.

Ryan ordered The Double Decker Grilled Cheese: three toasted slices of sourdough bread with cheddar and provolone cheeses along with his add-in option of thinly sliced ham. The sandwich size was ample and the texture extra chewy so your jaw will definitely be put through its paces. All sandwiches are served with homemade coleslaw (creamy, peppery, not-tangy; actually quite good) and very large dill pickle spear. He enjoyed the sandwich but said, "I forgot this thing had three slices of bread" when it arrived. If you're watching carbs, this probably isn't the menu item for you.

To compliment his sandwich, Ryan also ordered and finished a cup of the delicious Market Soup of the day: a creamy cheddar potato soup with lots of chunky potatoes and extra cheddary goodness. The soup does come with a couple slices of fresh-baked, crusty, chewy bread that makes for excellent dipping into the delicous, hearty soup.

With fresh tomatoes, basil, mushrooms, onions, and four large eggs, the daily special Fritata seemed like a sure winner. The serving was actually quite large and the flavors excellent.
Unfortunately, I asked to substitute fresh mozzarella cheese for the goat cheese and that wasn't done. The Scrambled Eggs with mixed veggies (tomatoes, onions, spinach, mushrooms, and topped with cheddar), brought after my request to have the Fritata taken back to the kitchen, was as moist and light and fluffy as scrambled eggs should be. In all fairness, the waiter admitted the cheese substitution mistake was his fault and comped the Fritata.

While many of the seasonal ingredients and unusual cafe fare ingredients ma
y be interesting to foodies and non-foodies alike, the overall takeaway is well-prepared comfort food worth the $8-$10 per entree.
