Saturday Brunch in the Bay
Old Faithful: The Colson Breakfast Plate
Dedicated to that lovely soul who worked so hard for so many of us all over the fjord, and a special shout out to all who have his Colson stiff legs around the inlet, this breakfast platter features two eggs any way you like 'em, three breakfast sausages (from town, mine will be fresh for next week I think), lyonnaise potatoes, marinated tomato salad, a large square of my Gran's freshly toasted rosemary cornbread and my signature handmade hollandaise. While you're here, check out our Colson stiff leg! Suggested Donation: $30 including special coffees, tea or whatever else you may want in the morning.
House Eggs Benny with Steamed Crab
My Gran's freshly toasted rosemary cornbread stacked with poached eggs done anyway you like them, thick cut homemade bacon and drizzled generously with our very own hollandaise sauce. Served with a balsamic marinated tomato salad on a bed of arugula. Side of steamed crab when available and yes, this weekend it's in stock! Yes, dipping crab in the hollandaise is a must though I can make you melted butter if you like. Donation: $35 including special coffees, tea or whatever else you may want in the morning.
Teghan's Boursin Scrambled Egg Focaccia Toast
My eldest daughter's creation, this one is not to be missed! Two slices of my toasted fresh baked focaccia topped with creamy boursin and topped with a two egg scramble. Served with a balsamic marinated tomato salad. Suggested Donation: $25 including special coffees, tea or whatever else you may want in the morning.
Avocado Toast with Eggs
Two slices of toasted fresh baked focaccia rubbed with garlic, drizzled with handmade olive oil from the Catalan region, layered with smashed avocado each topped with a poached egg done anyway you like it. *Depending on availability of really great avocados because not just any avocado will do! Suggested Donation: $25 including special coffees, tea or whatever else you may want in the morning.
All breads, unless specified, are made by Kate by hand at Swell Kitchen. All ingredients are top quality, often produced or grown ourselves at our home. A lot of work and love go into each bite at Swell Kitchen so we do ask for a suggested donation to cover our hard costs, our time and Kate's skill.
How to Pay Us
At the moment, payment is via etransfer to firstname.lastname@example.org but in future we will be moving to the square payment system.

We Kindly Ask You
While Visiting for Get-Together
Areas of Access: Swell Kitchen Get-Togethers and Cook-Togethers take place at the front of our home. You are welcome to enjoy our dock, our dining deck and of course, our outhouses. Unless invited to, we ask that you refrain from hanging out in the seaside kitchen as space is limited and we need that to prepare great food for you and to also not walk up to our main house, to go inside or to go to the back forest to visit the chickens unless invited to.
Your Wake: We ask you to please be considerate of our neighbours and our docks and arrive at 5 knots or less.
Your Craft: We ask that you ideally bring a small craft such as a dingy or small skiff or something else that you can arrive and leave safely in that has your own fenders and lines for tie up. If you have a larger craft and are unable to accommodate your request please be in touch in advance to arrange a private Get-Together for your large vessel's group. We cannot accommodate a vessel for a private Get-Together that is over 36'.
Drinking at Swell Kitchen: In order to protect everyone's safety while arriving, attending and departing, we require the responsible consumption of alcohol. We cannot entertain friends who arrive and appear to be under the influence because honestly it's not a "drunk-fest". We offer a family friendly environment for our friends, new and old, that is inclusive, kind, compassionate, chill and fun.
Smoking: There is a strict no smoking policy at our home and property. If you wish to smoke, you could do that on your own vessel please.
Children & Pets: We are an inclusive family friendly home with pets but please know that we do not offer supervision of small children or pets. When considering to bring your dog or not, please consider if your dog is able to be safely social with other dogs before bringing them. We will of course make sure our dog patrons have nice fresh water and a forest for "business time".
Noise: We love our peace and quiet and so does our bay. We provide a calm environment for everyone to enjoy some jazz over a coffee or meal with us and our friends new and old. We turn into pumpkins pretty early so please respect our neighbours as you come, stay and go from Swell Kitchen.
