The American Express studio in Seattle has updated their breakfast spread and I must say I am very much impressed! Unlike American Express Centurion lounges, the Studio in Seattle does not have a full kitchen, so the food and drink options are extremely limited. Other Centurion lounges such as Dallas, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Miami, or New York offer more amenities. The lounge relies on local vendors, bakers, and restaurants to provide high quality snacks with a local flair. Sadly Seattle does not have the space or the dedicated local chef.
The new menu items are quite delicious, or at least the ones I’ve tasted. I admit that in the last 2 weeks, I have had far more morning flights then I would like to admit from Seatac Airport, and my mornings have all started out with a bowl of fresh fruit and Greek yogurt accompanied by a pastry or egg soufflé, a flavorful strong cup of Vita Coffee, and a mimosa. A breakfast of an airport champion!
The offering beats what I’ve seen in the other lounges at Seatac airport and despite the small size of the studio, I am overall happy with the lounge. I just wish American Express would invest in a lounge like they have in their other airports within the United States.
Fresh fruit, yogurt, granola and cereals are available each morning. I’m a big fan of fresh berries, Greek yogurt and flax seed for breakfast
Choose a carb or two too! Bread and muffin optoins include Carrot Zucchini Bread, Glazed orange currant scone, Apple Mascarpone French Toast Rolls, Cinnamon Rolls, Dark Chocolate tuxedo Muffin, and Almond Poppy Muffin. There are plenty of breads available for snacking!
More carbs include Pine nut spinach roll and Pan pesto tomato roll. Yet for those searching for a protein there is Veggie broccoli egg strata, and Bacon egg strata.
Here is the basic bar menu. This includes only beer and wine. The expanded bar as many more options.
Since writing this post, American Express Seattle Centurion Lounge did expand the lounge in 2017 and now offers a full service bar area. Hot food is still limited due to the lounge not having a full kitchen.
