Cafe Lago Does Weekend Brunch

Pizza for breakfast? Why not?

Cafe Lago, now serving brunch.

Montlake’s beloved Cafe Lago rolled out brunch service last weekend. And judging by the reception on the restaurant’s Facebook page, it’s pretty good!

All of the plates on the menu (priced at $11 and under, obviously skewing Italian) are fired in the restaurant’s oven. There are several pizzas—goat cheese with Yakima peaches, bacon rosemary, a sausage-arugula-fontina, your standard margherita—and two varieties of calzone. Where are the eggs, you ask? In a frittata of smoked mozzarella, parmigiano, sausage, and veggies; or baked sunny side up in a “fiery” tomato sauce. Or, as is popular these days, you can ask for one on the margherita pie for a dollar more. A couple of pastries—the scones in particular are a hit—round things out.

Brunch runs 9–2 on Saturday and Sunday.
