staying at the marriott waterfront 1 nite. looking for breakfast suggestions near seattle waterfront hotel. have dinner reservations @ Eliotts. need suggestions for lunch in or near Pikes on Wednesday. No car, taking sounder to downtown and using public transportation. Eggs beni w/ bloddy mary would be wonderful but not necessary. Thanks in advance..newbee, island bound
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!
