Fabulous downtown brunch?
In town for two days and a night, hubby and I have dinner lined up at Dahlia Lounge (yes, I've been scouring the boards and now I'm sort of wishing we could try out more places) - but DL it is. Good idea? I dunno, I've been sort of craving it since Giada went there on her Weekend Getaways ...
But Sunday morning I'm at a loss. Can you name off your favorite breakfast places downtown? We're totally down for home-style, locals favorite, or trendy eatery. As long as it's yum, we're there.
You could go to another Tom Douglas place across the street from Dahlia Lounge named Lola. The brunch there is very good.
Another option is the Vietnamese inspired brunch at Monsoon.
Dahlia is a good choice. For breakfast, my favorite downtown is actually across the street at Lola - love the "big breakfast" with octopus, pork belly, fried egg, etc.
If you prefer something more familiar but still in a restaurant format, I'd hit Maximilien inside the Pike Place Market. They do a consistently fine brunch (do not pass up the basket of breakfast breads!) and the view and setting is great.
Another fun option is just to have a walking breakfast through the market, getting pastries and coffees and whatnot. (Piroshky Piroshky and Le Panier are both worth stops.)
