Brunch recommendation/downtown Seattle

howells Jul 12, 2009 09:18 PM

We are visiting Seattle next weekend, and are hosting a brunch to meet my future sister-in-law's family. We will be staying at the Fairmont Olympic hotel downtown. I'm hoping someone can help provide good recommendations for a weekend brunch spot, preferably close to our hotel. We are huge fans of Mothers Bistro in Portland, OR an I would love to find a similar spot in Seattle (excellent comfort food/scratch scones etc). We considered the Georgian, but I fear it is too stuffy, we are looking for excellent food without all that formality. Your suggestions are appreciated.

    Cafe Campagne, at the Pike Place market, is great (love the French French Toast), and surely other hounds can offer more, as your location is prime.

      Etta's does a fantastic brunch. Lola is another option.

        Howells, Etta's is excellent and the Dahlia Lounge has just started their brunch menu. Another thought is Maximilline's at the Market for a very French (off a menu) approach to brunch.
