Edison, Washington - A Food Lover's Paradise

Iris of Breadfarm Bakery in Edison, Washington

We first read about Edison, Washington in Bon Appetit.  We read it's where all the cool kids in the valley have set up shop.  So we decided to make the hour plus drive from Seattle to check it out.  It's really just a bend in the road and if you blink, you might miss it.  But don't.

Plan to spend a few hours.   There are two places you really must visit.  Breadfarm Bakery with fantastic hearty breads and cookies and such.   We got three loaves to take back to Iowa  - Chuckanut Multigrain, Samish River Potato, and a fantastic Lemon Sour Cherry.   One of each of their shortbread cookies, a couple thumbprints and a fig cookie.  It's quite a lovely place.

Then it was down the road to Tweets where Chef Dave served up amazing polenta with roasted vegetables, Anaheim peppers and goat cheese.  And then a thoroughly satisfying strawberry sour cherry pie.  Oh my!

Great place.  Great People.  Great Food.

Edison, we love you.
