Where we've featured it
It’s Saturday morning. You only have one sock on, your roommate is for some reason sleeping on your bedroom floor, and the Mario Kart main menu theme song has been on loop for the past seven hours. Time to leave the hangover vortex and enter the world. Head to Watson’s Counter, a quiet, aesthetically-pleasing espresso bar that serves delicious Korean/American food like gochujang pork belly eggs benedict and Korean fried chicken and waffles. No matter what, get a side of the Fruity Pebble French toast for dessert.
This spot in Ballard feels like a cozy corner coffee shop, but in addition to good espresso drinks, they serve some Korean-inspired brunch food, like eggs benedict with pork belly or chicken and waffles made with gochujang sauce. Weekend breakfast here is relaxed but not sleepy, mostly due to the aesthetically simple interior. Don’t miss the Fruity Pebbles French toast topped with whipped cream, because unlike in second grade, there’s nobody here telling you what you can and can’t order.
Watson’s Counter is an all day cafe in Ballard that serves coffee as well as Korean-inspired dishes like gochujang-marinated pork eggs benedict and ssam wraps. Also important: they have fruity pebble-crusted French toast.
