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.
Oeufs en Muerette at Cafe Campagne- Two poached eggs on garlic croutons in a foie gras and red wine sauce, served with a basket of fries to soak up all of your sauce.
One of the best brunch items in Seattle.
Kobe Beef Pho at Monsoon
Duck confit hash at Veil
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.)
