Breakfast in Seattle/Bellevue

My husband and I are getting a rare night away from the kids and hoping to find a great breakfast spot. We are staying in Bellevue, but are willing to drive into Seattle for something exceptional. Specifically we are looking for food that is not your standard bacon and eggs. Good coffee is also important. I am not thinking of the mass produced stuff. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

  1. Hi,
    I haven't had breakfeast at this place but it is certainly a great restaurant where everything is at a certain level of quality. I am sure it is delicious. It's in the hyatt in Bellevue

      I find this place soooo inconsistent! Some days its awesome service and horrible food (dry duck confit, overcooked steak), and other times the food is amazing and the servers ignore you completely. I would never go here again, the chef supposedly has some serious problems with consistency in the past, why he was let go of his last job. I had high hopes from the menu, but delivery is a no.
      For breakfast Etta's is awesome, if you want a quality brunch I love Palisade. They do a really cool part buffet/part a la carte where for one price you get an entree and then the buffet is salads, pasta salad, pastries, fruits, veggies, lox salmon, oysters and pancakes. Yes I said oyster buffet, and they are good to at a top seafood restaurant, can't beat the view either!

    2. The Olympic Four Seasons used to have a very elegant Brunch, but they are now the Fairmont, so I don't know what they offer.

      Etta's has a great brunch and nice view by the market

      1. Campagne by the market is a great high end French inspired brunch. Madison Park Cafe is another great unique brunch spot IMO.

        1. What about Sitka and Spruce?

              I'm a big fan of Le Fournil
              They have a great breakfast special: $2.99 for a latte or americano and a croissant of your choice. They're a great French bakery with fair prices. They also have a really nice lunch special and morning special [egg, ham, cheese on a toasted croissant with latte or americano]
