about agate pass cafe...
Welcome to the Agate Pass Cafe!
A solid menu that's surprisingly simple. Start with great ingredients and you'll be amazed at how good the food tastes without having to work so hard at it.
Our goal is to take fresh, local ingredients, treat them simply
and with respect, and create dishes to remember. Clean, fresh
flavors - nothing fussy or overblown. We do our best to source local
producers to bring you the flavors of the the area, and because of
that, our menu changes with the seasons. Even our wine list is
completely Pacific-Northwest based. Come see what North Kitsap is
marty bracken, chef
Bracken was born in New York, raised in the suburbs of Detroit,
matriculated in Oregon, and finally found herself in the
neighborhoods of San Francisco. She spent her entire career
involved in food and customer service one way or another, most
recently as Director of Operations at TASTE Restaurant at the
Seattle Art Museum. Prior to that she was in the trenches as a
line cook at Earth & Ocean (W. Seattle), as General Manager with Bon
Appetit, as a Systems Analyst with Starbucks, and as a Chef's
Apprentice with Culinary Communion. Marty is owner and chef
here at the cafe, responsible for menu development, wine selections,
and washing dishes. Her goal is to create simple, delicious,
slightly upscale food for the people of North Kitsap County until
she can retire somewhere on the beach in Mexico.
isaac rehfield, sous chef
While most kids were reared on a steady diet of Sesame Street or Reading Rainbow, Isaac spent hours glued to PBS watching Julia Child, Galloping Gourmet and the Two Fat Ladies. Needless to say, he was not like other children...
From humble beginnings at the age of 14, Isaac started his career washing dishes at a cafe in his hometown of Juneau, Alaska and quickly ascended through the culinary ranks, discovering his true passion for delicious dishes and a no-nonsense approach to cooking along the way. Maintaining a steady trudge, he worked his way through the trenches of the industry for close to ten years before landing at the Agate Pass Cafe as a Prep Cook in early 2011.
Two years later, he is now thrilled at the opportunity ahead of him as our new Sous Chef, where he will be responsible for creating some of the best food on the Peninsula. We should all look forward to great things from Isaac in the years to come.
