HELP! pls Seattle Brunch around $20, $25 pp

I need help. Every year we try to take my parents out for brunch for their anniversary. We have been taking them to Salty's every year but they bumped their prices up last year to 35.00 per person and its just getting a bit too much for my very large family. We want to stay $20 or $25 pp if at all possible.

We loved the buffet style, the pasta and the omlet bars, so we are looking for something similar to that.

I don't mind traveling a bit for a good place and atmosphere; as far north as Smokey Point, down I-5 to Sea Tac, or from Canyon Park down to Renton on 405 or even out maybe as far as North Bend.

Thank you, we really appreciate it.

    If you simply must have a buffet, go to Ivar's Salmon House.

      Ivar's is less spendy than Salty's and they do have an omelet bar and crepe bar. I haven't been in quite a while but I think it's in the $25 neighborhood. I liked it pretty well as the brunch buffets go. Salmon, chicken, beef, creme brulee

      Brasserie Margeaux has a Sunday Brunch for $18.95.

      We love Budd Bay Cafe in Olympia! They have something for everybody, and the food is great! http://www.buddbaycafe.com/

        we love ivar's as well. The view is awesome, bloodies and mimosas are $1, cost of food is about $23, and there is tons of good seafood. The hot entrees are okay, typical brunch crap, and almost all of the desserts are not made in house, but if you like ivars chowder and are into eating lots of poached and raw and alder-cooked salmon, plus cool views of the lake, then ivars is good.
