The Early Bird

Enjoy a delightful breakfast at the Early Bird Eatery, offering exciting twists on traditional breakfast. The savory waffles are a big hit, and their new menu item, the Benny Bowl (potatoes, two fried eggs, diced ham, hollandaise sauce, white cheddar, and tomatoes!) is worth a try. The Early Bird may get the worm but don't worry, if you don't rise with the sun you can still get breakfast here, they serve until 2:00pm!
Or, get outdoors! The Summit at Snoqualmie
