When an uneven distribution of mosh pits causes the Earth's axis to flip Antarctica-over-Alaska, breakfast will become the frumpy finale of the day instead of its roaring opener. Enjoy breakfast's treasured time slot while you still can with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of ambitiously portioned breakfast or lunch plates at Alexa’s Garden Café, nestled within the mighty palms of Ballard's Swanson Nursery.
Trimmed with cheerful greenery and a splashy koi pond, Alexa's Garden Café cultivates a lush menu of healthy fare. For breakfast, try the calico grub, a heaping mash of ham, grilled green peppers, onions, and potatoes smothered in salsa, sour cream, and cheddar cheese ($9.25). Vegetarians will enjoy meat-free takes on morning classics, such as the inventive veggie benny, in which ripe tomatoes and avocado slices replace the standard ham ($10.95). For late risers, the lunch menu's grilled meatloaf sandwich, blanketed in warm provolone with mushroom and onion pillows ($9.75), issues more comfort than a waterbed filled with Jell-O Pudding Pops. You’ll also find salads, wraps, and made-from-scratch soups. Alexa’s Garden Café is the perfect place to enjoy a chatty breakfast with friends or to re-create the taste and feel of your burrow back home.
- The French toast was lovely. The thick, chewy slices of bacon perfectly cooked. The egg, gently scrambled. The blueberry muffin was obviously home-made, as was the vegan banana bread. My children ate every bite while I drank black licorice tea and studied the tempting menu, with its list of breakfast items on one side, lunchtime options on the other. – Sumi Hahn, Eat, Play, Love
- Alexa's Garden Cafe offers up one of THE best dining atmospheres that I know of in Seattle. I don't often get all superlative, but this place earns my raves. – Jennifer C., Yelp
