Horrible Catering – This is the worst restaurant I've ever ordered from. They forgot one complete order. All of the salads ordered said with dressing on the side and most of them didnt have it, and the BBQ chicken salad was supposed to come with BBQ sauce. It came with katsup instead. The Thai salad dressing was so watery and had no taste. None of the salads came with a roll, which stated it would on the menu. And they screwed up on all the side salads. The only thing that was good was the brownies.
Slow service and overpriced – This was the first time we had been to Alexa's Cafe and we won't be going back any time soon. The wait was not bad (under 10 min), but the service was so very slow. Two people ordered coffee and I ordered a juice. The food arrived at the same time the coffee did. The portion sizes were a tad on the small size for the cost of the food. I had a bacon and cheddar scramble with new potatoes and toast. The potatoes were very dry as was the toast. All in all, I was very disappointed. We were really expecting something wonderful based on other reviews and we just didn't feel that it was even an average place to eat. We will be heading to Maltby Cafe or Brown Bag the next time we head out for breakfast.
Worldwide #1 whole wheat pancakes – My wife and I are breakfast fare afficionados, and have sampled offerings for breaking the fast worldwide over 37 years. Second only to the Oak Table, Sequim, WA for food quality and quantity is Maltby Cafe, Maltby, WA, followed in close third by Alexa's on Main, Bothell. Meats, eggs, spuds, and toast can often be good in any of thousands of purveyors; however, pancakes are a different story. Pancakes of robust flavor while still light in texture and bulk, not chewy, melt in your mouth sorts of cakes, require well above average skills and ingredients, and few are the breakfast joints up to the challenge. Alexa's, Oak Table, and The Original Pancake House (several Pacific Northwest sites) sit atop that heap. How did we in this little corner of the world get so blessed?
LOVE THIS CAFE – I would go here every day for breakfast and lunch if I didn't live in Seattle. This place has GREAT food. The service is a little slow...I don't know why they don't have more wait staff during the busy lunch hour...however that doesn't matter, the food is wonderful!! I especially love the tomato soup and tuna sandwich!
