When I visit small towns, I like to get advice from the locals.
This summer, when I stayed in the small town of Coupeville, Washington, a local told me that Knead & Feed, a 3rd generation restaurant and bakery, has the best breakfast in town, and the busiest, so I needed to get there early.
I’d been there for lunch, but I’m not a deli sandwich kind of gal so it didn’t make my go-back-to list. With this new claim in my pocket, I had to check it out.
Foodie Friday: Knead & Feed in Coupeville
The restaurant is under Knead & Feed’s bakery, which is known for its fresh baked treats, bread and pies. To get there take the stairs to the left and at the bottom of the second flight, you’ll see the door. The restaurant is very small so if it’s a busy morning be prepared to wait. If a window table is available, request that so you can look out at the water and Coupeville Wharf.
I arrived at 8:30 a.m. on a Saturday which thankfully got me there before the crowd who showed up about 15 minutes later. My take—they serve up one heck of a breakfast. I ordered the Cinnamon Swirl French Toast with a side of sausage links. Next time, I’m ordering one of their hearty Egg Scrambles.
