Breakfast on Greenlake
Homemade breakfasts at Greenlake Guest House - Made just for you.
At our Washington State bed and breakfast, we serve a menu-based hearty gourmet breakfast each morning in the dining room at cozy tables for 2-4. You are welcome to sit down anytime between 8 and 9:30 a.m. Start off with assorted juices and great Seattle coffee or tea.
Next we serve a fresh fruit starter that changes daily, followed by a made-to-order hot entree such as our famous Swedish Pancakes with Fresh Berries, Omelet with Feta, Spinach, & Tomatoes, or Roast Asparagus with Poached Eggs & Parmesan.
- Egg dishes come with a choice of a fresh baked scone or muffin, english muffin, or high fiber multi-grain toast.
- All entrees are served with bacon, sausage, vegetarian sausage, or ham on the side and garnished with fresh herbs and edible flowers from our garden (in season).
Want something simpler? We also offer eggs cooked to order, thick cut oatmeal, and yogurt & homemade granola any day of the week. Gluten free bread and cereals and dairy alternatives are also available. A breakfast at the Greenlake Guest House B&B is the perfect start to your Seattle getaway.
Please let us know if you have allergies or any special dietary requests. If you require an earlier breakfast than 8 a.m., we offer a continental breakfast option between 7 and 8, or you may request a Breakfast to Go Box put in our guest refrigerator the night before.

Pour the honey mixture over the oats mixture and combine. Pour the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet. Spread it out evenly, but leave a few clumps here and there for texture.
