A night away from the hustle and bustle of Washougal, WA is great. A night away in a Worldmark property Presidential Suite is bliss. A new breakfast place is always an adventure and during my weekend on the coast on the Long Beach peninsula, WA, our breakfast adventure took place at Laurie’s Homestead Breakfast House.
When all a restaurant does is breakfast, you would expect great things. Unfortunately, great things didn’t happen at Laurie’s. Oh…it wasn’t all bad. Truly. Let me say that the service was pleasant. The hash browns were perfect and the steak-sized slices of bacon were delicious. If your more about quantity than quality, however, this place is for you.
It was busy with folks rushing in to make the last seating time of 12:45 PM. Not a huge place, we were elbow to elbow with other diners and wall-t0-wall rooster decor.
Three of our party of four ordered some form of pancake. Half orders were offered, but we went for the full platters thinking we’d be sharing tastes all around the table. That didn’t happen. I was hoping for a taste of the Biscuits and Gravy, but alas, they are were a huge disappointment. So much so, they seemed to put my friend right off her food and folks, Lynn loves her food and is a specialist on biscuits and gravy. I did have a taste and BLAND was the first thing that came to mind. Even salt and pepper did not make much of an improvement.
I think everyone enjoyed their pancakes for the most part, except for Kyle who had serious chocolate overload with his Chocoholic pancakes. Jess and I ordered fruit pancakes and were a bit surprised to find most of the fruit on top rather than folded inside as the menu seemed to indicate. The Marionberries were fresh, the apples looked not quite so appetizing.
Enjoy the photos – they were taken before bites were and if you go by looks, than the breakfast LOOKED delicious.
