    It's a good bit more expensive that Elliot's, but Waterfront Seafood Grill seems like the perfect place for you. Great service, excellent food, relatively quiet place with a great view.

      It sounds like you're not going to be here on the weekend, when it would be easier to find a nice breakfast (brunch, really) downtown. For lunch in the market, Cafe Campagne and Matt's in the Market would be my go-to options. Eggs beni and a bloody mary can be had on the cheap weekdays from 9-11 am at both Toulouse Petite and Peso's (sister restaurants next door to one another on Lower Queen Anne). Both offer a "breakfast happy hour" where most menu items are only $6(!), and at Toulouse Petite (I've never brunched at Peso's), they have at least 5 different benedicts to choose from, as well as a full bar. It would be a long walk or a short bus trip away from your hotel. Happy Anniversary!

        Monday through Friday, Café Campagne doesn’t open until 11 am, although the time may not be a problem since you said you’re looking for place to have lunch. Café Campagne has a poached egg dish (oeufs en meurette) that’s mighty fine, but it’s not a classic eggs bene. It does have a Croque Madame if that’s an acceptable substitute. Etta's only serves brunch on weekends. If you want a classic eggs bene, I’d suggest Lola, part of the Tom Douglas empire at the corner of 4th Ave. and Virginia St. It has eggs bene and a full bar for a Bloody Mary (try the jalapeno-infused vodka Bloody Mary). Breakfast at Lola is served from 6:00 am to 1:00 pm, Monday through Friday. If you go to Lola, also check out the made-to-order doughnuts. Another option is Place Pigalle in the market where you can get a Croque Madame for lunch (but no eggs bene), and look out the windows over Elliott Bay.

        It's been a while since I've been there, but I remember Six Seven at the Edgewater Hotel having a wonderful crab benedict along with a couple other benedicts. Great view too!
