Marmaduke

Marmaduke, the movie, is a little cheesy for me but it might be good for younger kids. Marmaduke is a huge Great Dane who always causes trouble.

Small Time Burgers

You would think Small Time was like any other fast food restaurant, but it’s not. It’s a very small drive-thru/walk-up that has a very limited menu with several types of hamburgers, crinkle fries, shakes and sodas. I both liked it and disliked it. The reason I didn’t like it was because it was really slow service since there are not a lot of workers. They also burnt my burger bun. I tried to order my bacon cheeseburger with only mayo and ketchup but they couldn’t do that since they only offer their special sauce, which has relish in it; and I don’t like relish. But I did like my juicy bacon cheeseburger and the fries were just delicious. If...

Black Diamond Bakery

This is the best breakfast place I’ve ever been to in King County. Sorry, mom. My favorite item to order is the Coal Miner Breakfast with two buttermilk pancakes, two eggs and your choice of bacon, Italian link, country style sausage patty or ham. Yum! My dad’s favorite is the Hearty Breakfast, which comes with two eggs, hash browns, country style sausage patty, homemade biscuits and gravy. My mom likes the Eggs “Beney” served with hash browns. It’s made with ham and buttermilk biscuit rather than with Canadian bacon and English muffin. Oh yeah, all the breakfast plates also come with a mini muffin and a half slice of canned peach. We all share a warm whole-wheat apple cinnamon...
