Early Breakfast near Seattle Train Station

We are boarding a 0700 train starting at the Seattle Train station. Any good breakfast spots walking distance from the train station?

  1. Hmmn... I ride the train to Seattle pretty often. There is Zeitgeist, which is really more of a coffee shop, but I like the atmosphere there. You could get some good coffee and probably a pastry or bagel there - I don't know if you were thinking more of a hearty breakfast. If you walk out of the lower train station entrance and up the street, Zeitgeist is on your left.

      Zeitgeist opens at 6am Monday thru Friday only. On weekends, it opens at 8 so beware. I agree it's the best breakfast spot in walking distance to the train station. I wish Pho Bac opened earlier, as pho is the best breakfast in the ID. They don't usually open until 8 or 9 though.

    2. The Silver Cloud Hotel across the street from Safeco Field has a breakfast restaurant. The choices are limited, but you can get a good hearty breakfast in comfortable surroundings. Its about the only place in SODO like that. From King Street Station its about 0.7 mile walk, west on King Street and south on First Avenue, so you may want to take a quick cab ride there.
