Seattle seems to be lacking good Breakfast Burritos...

I just moved back to Seattle after living in LA for 4.5 years and the biggest thing I miss, (besides the 80 degree weather in the winter) is great mexican food - more specifically great breakfast burritos. I often get to work having a small bite to eat before jumping on the bus and find myself hungry around 10. This is when I would have gone to get a great breakfast burrito in LA, but here....

Please help me! I'm looking anywhere close to downtown, because thats where my office is, but if you've found any outstanding places anywhere else, it might be worth a drive.

Thanks

  1. NY Deli (across the hallway from deLaurenti's at Pike and 1st) has breakfast sandwiches until 11am iirc but i have not tried them yet. I think the Starbucks in the lobby of the WaMu bldg (Union and 2nd) has breakfast burritos but haven't tried them. The burrito place in Century square food court (3rd/4th and Pike/Pine) also has them iirc.

    1. I don't know what breakfast burritos in LA are like so you may guffaw at my suggestion but I like the burritos at Beba's Deli in the Seattle Municipal Tower, up on level 6. (There's another Beb'as at 3rd and Columbia-ish. Don't know if they have them, too.) With beans and fresh pico de gallo, yum... And I had one the other day at abou 10:30 and I didn't eat again until dinner.

      Oh, and I'm wondering if Blue Water Tacos does a good breakfast burrito? There's one at 2nd and Madison and others that I've seen around the city. I used to go there for lunch and thought the food was pretty good. Might give that a try.

      1. Blue Water Taco has them, they aren't great but they are on the menu. Also the Mexican Grocery in Pike Place Market has breakfast tacos and burritos they have odd hours sometimes they are open at 9:00 am next time they aren't open until 10:00 am.

        1. I always order breakfast burritos at Chinook's, but I only go there for Sunday brunch. Not sure if they're available on weekdays.

          1. I am on a quest to find a solid breakfast burrito in Seattle, Tukwila, Seatac, Kent or Renton. Did you ever find one. I ate the worst breakfast Burrito and Bang Bang Cafe the other day. Please let me know if you found a solid place.

                They might be a bit more basic than what the OP is looking for, but we enjoy the breakfast burritos at Easy Street Cafe's pretty much every weekend:

              2. Old thread but still a valid lament. I don't understand - Seattle has all manner of food trucks and bodegas, but all we get are over-priced and/or under-tasty breakfast sandwiches and gratuitously wacky junk like "pancakes on a stick." (yeah, that's a thing, apparently.)

                I used to get breakfast burritos from the catering trucks that served some construction sites near my office, but they're gone now (and they were never that good.)

                I feel like there's a market opportunity for someone on a major pedestrian route in or into (like the pancake-on-a-stick trailer) to just sell decent breakfast burritos - or their far superior alternative, BREAKFAST TACOS, which I've never seen locally.

                  While not the most excellent breakfast burrito in the world it's made fresh and at $1.99 it's dirt cheap. Flame Catering Cafe on 3rd across from the courthouse. The main flaw is the tortillas but that might be said about many places.

                  Laredos Grill has some pretty decent breakfast tacos on the weekend served with beans and rice for $6. Laredos also has really tasty beans though not traditional refried. They have more seasoning but they are tasty. The $6 weekend happy hour brunch menu is a nice way to start your day on a weekend.

                  1. re: terrier

                    Agua Verde sells breakfast burritos out of their takeout window. Not a very high traffic area, though.
