Bellingham Eats: Mount Bakery

May 3, 2013

Adam and I are headed down to the states for the weekend and I thought I’d share one of the restaurants we ate at when we went down to Seattle a month ago as part of my ‘Seattle Eats’ series.

We visited the Mount Bakery Cafe. They have two locations, downtown Bellingham and Fairhaven.

It’s not too far from Bellis Fair Mall. We stumbled upon it after a Trader Joe’s run – mandatory stop on all border runs. We wanted something for breakfast with lots of options, and this bakery definitely has that.

The bakery was packed on a Sunday morning, a good sign. The food looked amazing – piled high with tons of sides. There aren’t too many seats so you might have to wait 10-15 minutes but I assure you it is worth every bite.

Adam sipped on some coffee white we waited. I loved the coffee mugs – not just for Christmas.

 I had some water, which was served in repurposed wine bottles.

After perusing the menu while waiting, and seeing what other people were eating Adam quickly decided on the Waffle Eggs Benny, ‘Original Best Benny’ boasting ‘Bellingham’s Best Benedict’s’

It was good. Really good – I had a small bite while Adam quickly devoured the mountain of hollandaise covered eggs and ham.

I decided to side-step the likely stomach problems I would get by eating runny eggs (egg allergy), cheese (dairy allergy) and waffles (wheat allergy) and take the high road, though I really would have liked to eat the benny as well.

I ordered the fruit and granola with soy milk. The granola was ok, nothing too special and not a ton of flavour but definitely filling with raisins and coconut. I would probably order it again. The fruit was a good size, and the pear and apple were cut up into tiny slivers.

The bill came on a small clipboard that was decorated with postcards and stickers.


I would definitely visit the Bakery again for breakfast! And I highly suggest making a stop on your way down to Seattle, or if you’re shopping in Bellingham.
