Sunday Brunch - The Crumpet Shop

My favorite meal is definitely breakfast! Breakfast food is awesome no matter what time of the day it is but what's even better is Sunday breakfast! I don't really have time to sit down and have breakfast during the week ... usually I just grab something quick on my way to work. I'm still exhausted on Saturday from the work week but by Sunday, I'm fully rested and ready to start the day early with a delicious breakfast! 

Today, I woke my friend up at 8am and headed down to Pike Place Market to check out The Crumpet Shop. I've been hearing about this for quite some time and I finally made it down to the market today to try it out =) 

I've never had crumpets before and the lady behind the counter was kind enough to explain the history and the ordering process at the shop. It was a lovely experience! Crumpets are similar to english muffins (I don't like english muffins) english muffins are more like bread while the crumpet I tried today was very buttery and fluffy (YUM!) You get to choose your own toppings - from eggs to sweet to savory. We went with the traditional breakfast toppings .. eggs. I will definitely come back and try more  but we were both very happy with our breakfast crumpets! Check out the pics below and make sure you make a trip out here and try it for yourself!

BTW .. my friend had a mocha and he thought it was delicious. I'm not a coffee drinker so y'all will just have to take his word for it!
