The modern phenomena of reviewing every experience of daily life (Yelp, TripAdvisor, Yahoo, et al…) can lead to places that the curious would have never even been aware of much less visited. We were looking for a breakfast place on Washington's Olympic Peninsula, the two-hour difference in time (having  arrived the previous evening) would make brunch a more doable option. The reviews seemed to describe a wonderful place: great food, good atmosphere, in a charming town:

The town did possess a curious, if spartan, charm, although the roadhouse’s atmosphere of Modern Country music on a boom box was close to a vacuum. The food was, well, food. Lots of Agent Cooperesque coffee, however:

Almost everything in Washington State seems to have an attached brewpub, and this place was no exception:

The decor was definitely unique:

Tawana Roadhouse, Quilcene, Washington. Food: 2 stars, Atmosphere: 1 star, Quirk factor: 3 stars.
