My Nephew Jerad has lived in Seattle for a few years now. I keep saying I’m going to get up there and explore with him. He keeps telling me about the Freemont Market and I just have to see it for myself. Even though my last trip to Seattle was a quick one, we had a chance to meet Jerad for a nice brunch before our train ride home.
Jerad suggested that we try out The London Plane Seattle. Such a good pick. With the combination of designer fresh flowers, gift shop, bakery and cafe it offered everything I love. Luckily, we got there right before the rush and were seated in the mezzanine.
I loved the space. White, open and airy with the most amazing painted brick and huge display unit that covered one entire wall and went almost to the top of the second story. Just walking in the door was a treat. Fresh flowers to the left and a beautiful pastry case to the right. And the flowers were more than just your run of the mill carnations. Beautiful unique flowers that can’t be found in the small town where I live. Check out their Instagram feed to see their incredible floral designs.
The menu is small at the London Plane and changes with what’s available, but every choice was something out of the ordinary. I decided on the toast with the spicy tahini creamed greens and a fried egg. The bread for the toast is a beautiful sourdough made there on site and you can actually look down on the baking area. The dish was so different. And so good that I got caught up in the moment and forgot to take a photo before I devoured it.
Not one to pass up a good dessert, I ordered a slice of the passion fruit tart. Again, so good. And different. And this time I did manage to restrain myself and snap a shot before it was gone.
The London Plane is located on the corner at 300 Occidental Avenue S. in Seattle WA. You can visit their website at TheLondonPlaneSeattle.com to read more about them. This is definitely one that needs to go on the must do list for any Seattle Visit.
