Delicious breakfasts & lunches – Bittersweet has quickly become a family favorite for weekend breakfasts (we love the Sour Dough French Toast, baked eggs and strata of the day) or for lunch with friends or clients. They have great daily specials and most meals are under $10, so it is affordable. The food is fresh, the customer service is good and I love their homemade desserts. My favorite is the Reese's peanut butter cup cookie. I always take some home for my family when I stop in.
BROCOLI PIE SUPREME – THE BITTERSWEET HAS BEEN A FAVORITE PLACE FOR LUNCH FOR OVER 20 YEARS. IT WAS A DESTINATION PLACE FOR LUNCH ONCE A MONTH WHEN EMPLOYEED AT THE GLIDER FACTORY IN KENT. WE ALWAYS EXPECTED TO SEE THE BIG BOSS CEF CHOWING DOWN.
WE ENJOY HAVING LUNCH EVEN TODAY WITH OUT OF TOWN GUESTS FOR THEIR EXCELLENT ASSORTMENT OF HALF SANDWICH AND SOUP. THE BROCOLLI PIE IS TO DIE FOR. SAVE ROOM FOR THE BREAD PUDDING WHEN THEY HAVE IT. THE STAFF IS EXCELLENT AND GOOD PARKING DOWN THE STREET.
I RECENTLY FOUND CEF THRU THE WHITE PAGES AND WE ENJOYED RECALLING OUR LUNCHES AT BITTERSWEET. IT IS GOOD TO HAVE GOOD MEMORIES WHEN YOU REACH THE 80 PLATEAU.
Keep the Chicken Enchilada Casserole – I have eaten here several times and love the Chicken Enchilada casserole. It is delicicious. I can always count on Bittersweet to have wondeful soups, sandwiches and a great chicken enchilada casserole!
Big and Wonderful Changes at the Bittersweet! – I stopped in for lunch with some friends recently and was pleased and surprised to see the new, modern menu. WELCOME TO THE 21ST CENTURY, BITTERSWEET RESTAURANT! My dining companion had the lovely pumpkin lasagna which was layered with a fabulous pumpkin seed pesto. The noodles tasted fresh rather than the dried, boxed variety. It came with a light but satisfying house salad. I had the luscious island pork tenderloin sandwich which was nestled in a crusty sourdough baguette. The thinly sliced and perfectly cooked pork was warm and slightly spicy and was surrounded by a crunchy cumin red cabbage slaw. The parsnip fries are a lovely alternative to the bag of chips they used to give out with sammys.
If you haven't been to the Bittersweet in awhile, I recommend you return for a wonderful surprise. They are also opening for breakfast soon!
GREAT FOOD, WONDERFUL ATMOSPHERE – LAST WEEK MY HUSBAND AND I HAD LUNCH FOR THE THIRD TIME AT THE BITTERSWEET LOCAYED IN DOWNTOWN KENT. THE FOOD GETS BETTER EVERY TIME WE EAT THERE. BITTERSWEET WILL DEFINENTLY BE SEEING US BACK AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE IN THE FUTURE. GREAT FOOD, EXCELLENT SERVICE AND THE PRICE IS RIGHT. RECOMMEND ANYONE LOOKING TO DINE IN DOWNTOWN TOWN KENT TO CHOSE THE BITTERSWEET!
Old favorite – My mom and I used to go to bittersweet almost weekly. They have great sandwiches (except I got a hair in mine, TWICE, yuck!) and my mom loves the salads. Personally, I only return for dessert. Even then, go across the street to the wild wheat, way better selection.
Editorial Review – Casual lunch spot serving American favorites with the occasional twist stays open Friday evenings for dinner and live music.
The Best Restaurant In Kent – The atmosphere at the Bittersweet is comfortable and elegant. The lighting is soft and fine paintings of local Kent artists adorn the exposed brick walls. Light classical music or jazz adds to the ambiance. The service is outstanding. Most days Jim Krier, the owner, will come over and chat with you during your meal. As often as not, he will offer you a complimentary glass of your favorite beverage (perhaps wine or in my case non alcoholic beer).
The restaurant offers a number of delicious set entrees such as lasagna (both meat and vegetarian), broccoli pie, a chicken burrito and an assortment of salads soups and deserts. In addition, there is a rotating menu of special items that changes at least once a week. Recently I enjoyed a wonderful dish of Beef Stroganoff.
The restaurant stays open for dinner on Friday evenings and live entertainment is usually offered.
A Favorite Lunch in Kent – This is the best place in Kent for homemade bread, clam chowder and apple crisp. Bittersweet has excellent ranch dressing, too, atop a handsome portion of side salad offering mushrooms, cheese, and pickled beans. I rather think this is a woman-y restuarant, the perfect place to bring one's mom or best friend to catch up on the latest gossip. By the way, I sure do miss the "cream cheese and advocado with sprouts" sandwich, replaced by a cream cheese and cucumber sandwich that is still good but no comparison to its veggie predecessor.
