  • Sweet Iron Waffle Bar Brings Waffles + More to Capitol Hill! 12.06.16

    Sweet Iron


    Sweet Iron Waffle Bar, a local family owned business with a downtown café, has opened its second, larger location on Capitol Hill on November 7, 2016 at 1416 10th Avenue, Seattle 98122 in the new Broadstone Infinity building.

     

    In a casual café atmosphere, Sweet Iron Waffle Bar’s new 1370 square-foot Capitol Hill café features freshly made, authentic Liège Belgian waffles for breakfast, lunch, dinner, weekend brunch, or grab-and-go boxes by the dozen, as well as a mimosa bar.

     

    Since 2009 Adrienne Jeffrey and her two children Danielle Jeffrey and Paul Jeffrey have been supplying locals, tourists and office workers with a fresh alternative to fried donuts and pastries in their downtown café. Sweet Iron’s specialty Liège Belgian waffle is made with a brioche style yeasted dough, made with locally milled Shepherd’s Grain Flour, then lightly candied with sweet pearls of sugar imported from Europe. The dough rises for two hours before being pressed into an authentic cast iron Belgian waffle iron and baked to rich, caramelized perfection.

     

    Waffles are topped with a choice of quality sweet and savory ingredients, many of which are house made including jams, sauces and compotes. Favorites include: Brûléed Bananas with caramel and whipped cream, or the savory Prosciutto, Crème Fraîche and Green Onions. Mini waffles are available by the dozen and come dusted with powdered sugar, or dipped in dark or white chocolate. 

     

    Sweet Iron will introduce a gluten free waffle at the Capitol Hill location and other new menu items including a “waffle bake” with their signature waffles baked in a rich custard offered exclusively as a weekend brunch item on Saturday and Sunday. Guests can also look for rotating seasonal waffle flavors and unique waffle alternatives including Ice Cream Sundaes using Full Tilt ice cream, Yoghurt Parfaits with berry compote, greek yogurt and Tall Grass Bakery coconut granola and Vegan Chia Parfaits with coconut cream chia pudding, raspberry compote, mango mousse and almonds.

     

    Beverages features fresh-pressed citrus juice available on its own or in mimosa form, alongside Stumptown Coffee Roasters coffee, a selection of local and Belgian-imported beer and wine and organic loose-leaf teas.

     

    Hours are Monday–Thursday 7 a.m.–9 p.m., Friday 7 a.m.–midnight, Saturday 8 a.m. – midnight Sunday 8 a.m.–8 p.m.

     

    Sweet Iron is also available for catering small and large events via pick up or drop-off. Orders can be placed online at shop.sweetironwaffle.com

     

    About Sweet Iron Waffle Bar

    Sweet Iron Waffle Bar is a local, family-owned business bringing deliciously authentic Liège waffles to Seattle since 2009. Waffles are made from brioche style dough, studded with sweet pearls of sugar and baked to caramelized perfection in a cast iron waffle iron. Sweet Iron uses the finest all-natural ingredients at both their downtown Seattle and Capitol Hill locations for its menu of sweet and savory, made-to-order Belgian waffles. Enjoy for breakfast, lunch and dinner, or book for catering at local events. Sweet Iron waffles are also available at CenturyLink Field and Safeco Field during game days.

     

    Sweet Iron’s recipes were created by Adrienne Jeffrey and were inspired by the waffles she grew up eating as a child. Before opening in 2009 she and daughter Danielle made a research trip to Belgium to take waffle-making classes, sample local waffles, and perfect their recipes. www.sweetironwaffles.com

  • Our newest clients: Pho Cyclo Cafe + Lavender Jade Catering 06.25.13



    Seattle is known for its vast number of places to find pho. We’ve had good pho, we’ve had bad pho, but it wasn’t until we listened to the experts – that’s right, local chefs – and then we realized where to get the best pho! We found it at Pho Cyclo Café, noted by many for its quality steaming hot pho, but we were equally impressed by its large menu of Vietnamese favorites. From banh mi to noodle salads, spring rolls to seasonal specials, Pho Cyclo has more Vietnamese options in one place than most of the other pho shops in town.

    Chef-owner Taylor Hoang started the company years ago and it has grown to four locations in Seattle and Bellevue. She’s got the business savvy, the chef palate and the cultural background to ensure her authentic, quality restaurants are serving up Vietnamese favorites. You’ll even find her taking part in Tom Douglas’ Culinary Summer Camp next month, leading instruction on how to make Pho Ga (chicken pho) and Bo La Lot (grilled beef wrapped in betel leaf). She also runs her own cooking classes out of the Pho Cycle Café Sodo location. We’ll have more on those classes and the new summer menu items soon – we’ve sneaked a peak already and we can’t wait for more!

    As if that weren’t enough to keep one woman busy, Taylor also runs Lavender Jade Catering. It’s the caterer of choice when looking for your favorite Asian cuisine, from Vietnamese to Chinese, Japanese to Thai. Beautifully prepared and cordially presented, Lavender Jade adds spice and variety to any intimate event or large gathering.

    We are proud to partner with Taylor, her four Pho Cyclo Cafe locations (Sodo, Downtown Seattle, Capitol Hill, Bellevue) and Lavender Jade Catering as our newest clients. We hope to see you over a steaming hot bowl of pho soon!

  • Coastal Kitchen Reopens with Oyster Bar 10.22.12



    One of Capitol Hill’s favorite mainstays reopened this past weekend after a four-week closure. Coastal Kitchen, the 20 year favorite for breakfast, lunch and dinner, underwent construction that had crews putting in a new oyster bar for bivalve fans, building a new cocktail bar for the over 21 crowd, and installing new bamboo flooring and other details in the rest of the dining room.

    A new menu launch beckoned longtime Coastal Kitchen diners and attracted new guests. New executive chef Jason Jones brings a wealth of experience to Coastal with sustainable seafood and other new favorites for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night seven days a week.

    For any oyster fanatics, count on at least four different oysters on the half shell daily, including the Two Buck Shuck, a chef’s choice of one variety of oyster for just $2 all day.

    Find out why owner Jeremy Hardy decided it was time for a remodel from Capitol Hill Times, see how the reopening was celebrated in advance on Seattle Met, see pics from the preview event courtesy of Capitol Hill Seattle Blog, and read about the bicoastal oyster bar in Thrillist.

    Coastal Kitchen is also taking part in Seattle Restaurant Week through Thursday.

    We look forward to seeing you at the new Coastal Kitchen!
