    Hands down, probably the best French toast I've ever had. Good just on its own, the fresh maple syrup and fresh fruit is just icing on the cake. Eggs tasted farm fresh, tasty hash browns.

    Best restaurant biscuits I've had, coming from someone who's grandmother bakes biscuits every morning for breakfast. Geraldine can't compete with Kathleen Butler, but she puts up a good fight!

    The Bacon, Egg & Arugula Sandwich is really good. I substitute Avocado for the Bacon & get fries instead of hash browns.

    One of Seattle's best breakfast spots, well worth the wait if you encounter one. Be sure to get a fresh, homemade biscuit instead of toast, they are delicious! Emerald Scramble is my go-to dish!
