Germaine’s Country Kitchen is now serving dinner – let’s all help support a local family business located at 14901 Ambaum Blvd. SW, Burien, WA 98166.

Germaine’s is a favorite breakfast and lunch spot. They are expanding their hours to serve dinner. To me, they are the “Cheers” of breakfast, ” Where everybody knows your name”. I love supporting a local family business. Mom, Jacki in the kitchen, daughters Jennifer (1/2 owner) and Kaitlyn are serving.

Germaine’s Country Kitchen is dedicated to the memory of Grandmother Germaine Maribeau Bourton. Germaine came to America in 1919 to live on a farm in Eastern Washington. At that time, all she could do in the kitchen was boil water. Soon, she was selling her egg salad sandwiches at the family barn dances, cooking for the local Catholic church, and planning and cooking dinner for the members of the American Legion. For years, Germaine was well known to folks in the Waterville area for her wonderful apple pie, maple bars, chicken dinners, and the wine she made in her cellar. Germaine started the family tradition of gathering in the kitchen with good home cooking! Come share the warmth of family and the enjoyment of good food, bringing you the same warmth and comfort of Germaine’s original country kitchen.

Their nightly specials are:

  • Monday – Traditional turkey dinner
  • Tuesday – Mexican night
  • Wednesday – Pasta night
  • Thursday – Meatloaf
  • Friday – Steamer Clams/ Steak

Jacki is especially proud of her steamer clams. She said she “loves being able to present such a dish to folks who may not be able to afford to go to somewhere like Anthony’s or Salty’s.”

Hope to see you there!

– local resident, Suzanne Greive

    I like Germaine’s..but had to stop going there. The food was fantastic, but the first time we went there we had ants crawling on the table. The second time we went there my fork was dirty and my friend had dried crusties on her drinking glass.

    Have been to this restaurant once; was OK, food was good, but not too memorable, though. Parking is a bit difficult and is kind of a cramped environment inside. Seems to be a pretty low-keyed and friendly operation. I might visit it again if someone offers to buy, but if I’m paying, it probably wouldn’t be my first choice. Do try it once, though…after all, everyone’s tastes are different and you just might love it.
