Strong breakfast offering albeit not Italian. Tasty.

Bellies full, we were ready to conquer Ballard.


  1. homemade jam looks amazing!!!!

    pasta with duck sauce....goodness.

  2. I love your brunches. I never have luck with brunches at Italian restaurants.

  3. I hope you guys swung by Delancey for a meal while in Ballard. Fingers crossed.

  4. You really can't go wrong with alcohol in the morning!

  5. bolognese, ragu, all this is making me really want pasta.

  6. Oooooh fancy bellini. Way to make me want a drink in the middle of my work day.

  7. I love homemade strawberry jam. I'm always surprised by how bright red it is.

    That pasta looks so good.

    Whenever I hear/see "Volterra," my first though is the Twilight series. So mature, I know. lol

  8. oooh, pasta. it looks fantastic.
