From the Heartland. by violet

A couple of weeks ago, a small group of us went out to dinner at the new Heartland Café in west Seattle. As the name suggests, Heartland serves Midwestern comfort food. The menu lists things like biscuits and gravy and something called a Juicy Lucy burger which, turns out, is a burger stuffed with a molten core of American cheese. I guess it's a midwest thing. 

The décor matches the theme with rustic and down home feel.

I ordered a Wisconsin cheddar cheese soup with a side salad. The soup was creamy and had that hearty, rib-sticking feeling that you would expect from a place like this.

Most people went with burgers and who could blame them with choices like the Juicy Lucy which despite the warnings, Dan nearly burned his hand on the cheese core.

Eric went with the Sheboygan which had a butterflied brat, caramelized onions, sauerkraut and beer mustard.

Orange tried the Johnny Appleseed with bacon, apples, beer mustard, caramelized onions and cheddar.

I even tried a bite of the mac and cheese the Kenz ordered – think that’s what I will be getting next time.

Overall, a delicious spot, I’m especially excited to give it a try for breakfast. Cinnamon Roll French Toast? Count me in!

  1. And there is a pirate bar in the back. And, it is awesome. Do not go to the Shipwreck thinking that is the pirate bar inspite of the name.

  2. JP was working the OLS Warehouse sale. And the Shipwreck did not bring the pirate like I wanted it to.
