Brief Encounter is a wonderful local breakfast-lunch haunt frequented by Clyde Hill and NW Bellevue. They serve many items, of which my favorite is a wonderful corned beef hash and sweet roll. Thanks to the staff for keeping great tasting coffee flowing, especially on a Monday!

Don't try to sell me gift cards while I'm trying to have breakfast with my family and young children. I was put on the spot after being interrupted during breakfast and asked if I would buy the gift card deal. Makes me not want to return.

From Our Editors

Since serving its first cup of coffee upwards of 60 years ago, The Brief Encounter Cafe has continued to sate customers’ cravings thanks to its menu of hearty diner food. On any given day, the kitchen buzzes as cooks assemble orders ranging from burgers to housemade soups, forging dishes from ingredients such as housemade corned beef, wild king salmon, and fresh fruit. Laden with sweet house cinnamon rolls and savory egg dishes, their breakfast menu is served all day to accommodate the appetites of late risers and cannibalistic pancakes.
