On a crisp Sunday morning, take a deep breath of salty, ocean air, and relax. Brunch is served at Anthony’s Homeport on Admiral Way.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Sunday, brunch is served at the restaurant over looking the waterfront through wall-to-wall windows.

Once seated, a waitress presents guests with a platter of fresh fruit, mango, strawberries, grapes, pineapple, and cantaloupe. Blueberry coffee crumbcake with cinnamon butter is also complimentary. That alone is a substantial breakfast.

The menu features crepes, and traditional items such as waffles and French toast. There are many specialty omelettes and scrambled egg dishes like Anthony’s Italian Fritata, which has sun-dried tomatoes, basil and mushrooms with cheese.

Instead of hash browns, meals come with potatoes and bacon. Mimosas, champagne, and fresh squeezed orange juice are available. Prices range from $7.95 to $14.95.

“We strive to always provide the highest quality product available with Northwest seafood, and produce,” said Anthony’s general manager David Olson.

The restaurant was opened in 1992 by Budd Gould, who owns 16 Anthony’s restaurants across Washington state.

The Edmonds location attracts couples and families. Romantic sunsets, and the staggering views make a romantic setting, while the sailboats, and the sandbox on the dock, make Anthony’s Beach Cafe a great place to take children.

Gould owns and operates a wholesale division for seasonal fish. He has established relationships with fisherman in Alaska, Hawaii and the Pacific Northwest, who supply his restaurants with fish.

Olson said that the restaurants purchase produce in the height of their flavor profile to ensure quality taste to their customers.

“We offer simple, yet delicious food and friendly and efficient service that is guest-first-oriented,” he said.
