Among ways to start the morning, eating a balanced breakfast is second only to jogging with the sheep you counted the night before. Get your stomach off on the right foot with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of comfort fare during breakfast and lunch at Alexa's Café & Catering in Bothell.
The hospitable chefs at Alexa's Café & Catering make peace with inflamed appetites with a breakfast and lunch menu of hearty comfort fare served amid the eatery's kaleidoscopic floral accents. House-made hollandaise rains across the crab benedict's pair of poached eggs and crown of crabmeat ($12.50), allowing early birds to rouse bleary taste buds without chugging a Molotov cocktail. Syrup-drenched pancakes pile atop each other by the full ($7+) or short stack ($5+), unfurling heavy eyelids alongside 10 signature scrambles served with sizzling strips of maple bacon and fresh veggies (6.95+/half order; $8.95+/full order). Midday diners can fix mitts around slices of freshly baked bread bookending any hot or cold sandwich, from grilled corned beef and oven-roasted turkey to house-made meatloaf with melted provolone ($7.50+/half order; $8.50/full order) and cheek pinches from Grandma. A quartet of quesadillas crush south-of-the-border cravings, coasting across tongues on frothy lochs of craft suds from Red Hook and Fat Tire ($3.50 each).
Ensconced in a building dating back to the 1920s, Alexa’s Café’s dining room is flanked by brick walls and wainscoting, and is filled with pine furniture where guests cozy up to platters of guilt-free comfort fare for breakfast and lunch. The café’s hearty portions come compliments of owner Leigh Henderson’s deep-rooted love of feeding people, which is also the catalyst for the café’s ever-evolving menu. In the evenings, Alexa's pairs heartier fare such as burgers with wines and tap beers from local breweries such as Mac & Jack's. Alexa’s also totes its fresh fare to special events, from business luncheons to Batman-themed bat mitzvahs.
