Seasonal ingredients are the driving force behind Streamliner Diner’s daytime and evening menus, which change quarterly to reflect the freshest product the area has to offer. Breakfast sticks to classics such as omelettes, biscuits and gravy, and scrambles, but added ingredients like smoked salmon, pesto sour cream, and ginger-marinated tofu elevate them above typical diner fare. The dinner menu takes a truly upscale turn with pan-fried risotto cakes, beef tenderloin with rhubarb red wine sauce, and pastas interwoven with enough fresh veggies and herbs to make a multivitamin squirm. Streamliner Diner also features an extensive wine list showcasing vintages from Washington State.
For more than 40 years, Robert C. Mathwig has owned Family Pancake House and defended his sanctuary for the fluffy breakfast staple against the ravages of time, stringently maintaining the same wholesome business practices that set the cozy eatery apart from the competition on its very first day. The kitchens still make most of the menu from scratch, sourcing as many ingredients as possible from local suppliers to ensure that each order arrives to its table at the peak of freshness. The whole menu of breakfast treats and savory later-day meals is available all day long, with fluffy pancakes, crepes, and omelets sharing space at diners’ tables with grilled cheeses and breaded pork chops.
Family Pancake House takes its friendly moniker to its logical conclusion by acting as a supportive family for the community that has kept the eatery's doors open for nearly half a century. The company routinely sponsors youth sports teams, and employees often volunteer their leftover flour supply to sweaty-palmed gymnasts.
Nothing brings people together quite like a shared meal. Toro Lounge’s menu boasts tapas in two sizes to accommodate groups or appetites of any size.

To keep the feel-good vibes flowing, the lounge also curates a hefty drink list that includes cocktails and craft beers from Northeast microbreweries, including 20 on tap.
