We’ve been going to Bing’s for a long time — it’s a comfortable place in Seattle’s Madison Park neighborhood, and we always have burgers and beer. This morning, though, we wanted brunch and we had Chloe with us, after a romp at the dog park. Bing’s was still the answer, it turns out, since they have five outdoor tables (with umbrellas, thank goodness — I need either an umbrella or a shade option when I sit outside in the summer). They greeted Chloe with quiet pleasure, and served us a good brunch — the menu includes straight-ahead waffles and pancakes and egg dishes, as well as some foolish pleasures like breakfast pizza, a breakfast burger, and the never-to-be-repeated Countess of Monte Cristo extravaganza. We’ll be back, and we’ll bring Chloe.
