Tossed Salads and Scrambled Eggs

Fonté Café – Downtown, Seattle

Posted on: Wednesday 24 August 2011

Ms S has been living in Seattle for only two weeks and she’s had the best of the late summer weather that Seattleites have been craving for since Memorial Day weekend.

Although lethargic in the humidity, I’m determined to be out and about to absorb the natural vitamin D. On an al fresco dining binge, we enjoyed a weekend brunch on the sidewalk at Fonté Café.

My love for chalkboard signs is unabated. Masala latte is indeed ‘fun to say’!

The city is buzzing on a rare eighty plus day, hats and sunglasses were requisite accessories.

Fonté Café is located next to the Four Seasons Hotel and opposite the Seattle Art Museum. The interior is plushly decorated, and a gleaming espresso machine is showcased at the counter.

Fonté is a Seattle based coffee roaster. They sponsored Keren’s Food Lovers’ Guide to Seattle Book Launch Party and the aroma of freshly ground coffee lingered at the Shilshole Bay Beach Club.

In this climate and without air conditioning, I’m liking ice coffees. I slurped on one as the others had hot drinks.

Ms S ordered the Fonté pancakes with blueberry compote and maple syrup.

Mr S opted for the Fonté scramble of peppered bacon, mushrooms, asparagus, roasted red peppers, fresh herbs and Fonté cheese blend. I had a forkful and it was a delicious combination.

I selected the Parma omelette with prosciutto di Parma, Parmigiano Reggiano and asparagus. Slices of prosciutto were evenly distributed in the fluffy omelette and the asparagus was pleasantly crunchy.

Both the scramble and omelette were served with sourdough toast, mixed salad leaves and cannellini beans.

After a week of coffee detox, my iced coffee was welcome reprieve from the heat!
