Sqirl

in bakeries/cafes/dessert places, lunch, vegetarian

This isn’t the first time I’ve blogged about Sqirl. I’ve eaten their famous jams at home; even tried their baked goods and savory stuff at events. I’ve heard the hype and have been wanting to visit since they opened in 2012. But I admit, I was scared. I’d heard the space = tiny, the lines = long, the service = slow, the parking = a pain, the seating = limited, and the hipsters = intimidating.

Diana psyched me up to go on a weekday for lunch, when everything was much more manageable.

Since it was my first time, I stuck to the classics.

Well, not the coffee part – but definitely the toast.

This kinda put the one on Larchmont to shame.

Brioche – delicate, flaky and slightly charred/burnt on the edges, slathered in house-made ricotta and Wild Blueberry Tarragon Preserves.

I obviously got a little snap happy. It’s all over my social media feeds, and has even taken over my Facebook Page!

Gloriously delicious, as was Diana’s dish – the Brown Rice Sorrel Pesto Bowl with Feta, Greens, Radish, and Bacon.

This food is worth facing your fears for.

That brown rice bowl is SOOOO good, but the toast looks tempting too!

Ah, that toast looks amazing! I wish there was a big toast trend here in WA (maybe there is and I haven’t heard about it)
