Just a quick one... went to Agate Pass Cafe in Suquamish last night...grrat spot.. Smoked salmon Blinis (would have been nice to have had a caviar option...but the fried capers were a fine addittion), nice salads, I had an outstanding duck with great lentils, and my wife had beef bourgionnion with nice green beans and potatoes..Olive oil cake for dessert..

Service was nice (though we had to ask for forks and knives to be replentished) but very sincere.

We will go back for sure !

    We took our maiden voyage to Agate Pass Cafe for Sunday brunch and I will have to say we got mixed results. We showed up at 11:00 and the place was only about half full. We were greeted with a smile, seated right away and poured some excellent coffee. The waitress took our order and after she left, I commented to the rest of our party (there was four of us total), that I am always impressed by someone that doesn't write down the order, but is able to memorize everyone's wishes. I also qualified that with I am impressed if they get it right.

    Then the wait, and the wait and the wait. Keep in mind there is only 10-12 table tops in the place and it was half full when we got there and I would say we waited at least 45 minutes for our meal. After about four cups of coffee, our meals finally showed up and wouldn't you know it, they forgot one of our breakfasts. Now amazingly, they were able to whip that out in five minutes, which makes you wonder what the other 40 minutes was about earlier, but I digress.

    The food itself was pretty good. Two of us got the Polenta Pancakes, one got French Toast and the order that had to be whipped up was the Vegetable Ragout. The food is good enough, that I could probably convince my fiancee to give it another try, but I sure hope we just hit an off day in the service dept. Our side of the water, so needs good, high quality, independent destinations, I hope Agate Pass can rise to the occasion.

      Just wanted to second your opinion. We have eaten there twice in the past 8 months or so and it was great both times. They said the beef bourguignon on the menu was inspired by the Julie & Julia movie- it was spectacular and fun. The scallops were also wonderful.
