Part I HERE
Thursday morning we asked our hotel for breakfast recommendations and the front desk pointed us in the direction of Portage Bay Cafe. I will be forever grateful for that suggestion because that is where I had THE BEST PANCAKES IN THE WORLD. Ok, so I’m the only one that voted in the pancake election but gosh darn I was A-M-A-Z-E-D.
The Vegan Banana pancakes rocked my world and I’m a pancake snob. They had an almost crisp exterior while still retaining the soft pillowy interior I crave in a pancake. The were filling without being dense. They had flavor so no syrup was needed (although that hazelnut spread was tasty). I only finished about one of them, they filled me up without bogging me down. Did I mention I loved them? Seriously-check them out if you’re ever in Seattle. And if Portage Bay happens to read this-I’d pay big bucks for the recipe.
After breakfast we walked down to Pikes Place Market.This wasn’t my first trip there, but I enjoyed it just as much as last year. I’m always blown away by the fresh produce and beautiful flowers.
For some reason no one in our group kissed a fish this time around so I’ll have to rehash my fish kissing pic from last years visit.
Next up we hit the expo. (yes this is going to take me a week to get to race day)
