Great Breakfast Place Around the Grand Hyatt

I've been reading the other post of breakfast spots in North Seattle with interest. A few of the places that sound terrific to me like Pete's Egg Nest and the Salmon Bay Cafe seem a bit far when plugged into Rand McNally, 5 to 7 miles away.

I was wondering if there is someplace near the Grand Hyatt for good pancakes, eggs, bacon, great hashbrowns and coffee, either within walking distance or a reasonable bus ride away. Thanks for your help.

  1. I see that the Five Point Cafe is not too far from the Hyatt, maybe a mile away. Any good?

    1. The Five Point is a diner in Seattle that's been around for about 100 years.... It's an interesting place, but I'd say it's more the type of place to go for hashbrowns at 2am after night of drinking than a place to get up and go to in the morning.

      The Five Spot (confusing, yes) has excellent breakfasts, with moutains of delicous hashbrowns, great omelets and excellent bloody marys. It also has long lines on weekend mornings, but if you're by yourself you can usually snag a seat at the counter. It's on the top of Queen Anne, so from the Grand Hyatt, just walk down Pine to 3rd Ave, and catch a #2 or #13 bus to Galer Street.

        Beware, 5 Spot is now open for breakfast only on weekends.
