Breakfast and other meals in Capitol Hill/Seattle U area?

sfkusinera Jul 16, 2010 11:35 AM

Coming in super early next Tuesday (8am!) to our hotel, Silver Cloud, on Broadway and need a good breakfast recommendation in the neighborhood. Any other recs in the Capitol Hill/Seattle U/Broadway/First Hill area also welcomed for lunches and dinners, drinks, happy hour, etc -- we are in the area from Tues-Fri next week for a conference. We will also spend a good amount of time in the International District and Pike Place and downtown -- where I already have faves (Tai Tung, Piroshky, Salumi, etc). We just haven't been to Seattle in the last 2 years and maybe there are some new places in the Capitol Hill area that we haven't tried, or old faves we didn't know about. Thanks!

      Another vote for Cafe Presse. Also check out Boom Noodle on 12th and...Pike? Pine? I've lived here 33 years and still can't keep them straight!

        My favorites on the hill are Olivar, La Spiga, Poppy, Cafe Presse and Via Tribunali.

          Welcome back. There are some new places close by as well as some old favorites that you have not mentioned.

          Cafe Presse is nearby and is good any time of the day: http://www.cafepresseseattle.com/pages/home.php
          Po Dogs is close and a good place for a fast bit - although not inexpensive from a hot dog point of view. http://podogs.com/
          Tidbit has moved into the building that houses the QFC on Broadway right down the street from your hotel: http://www.tidbitbistro.com/menus.htm
          Poppy is always good for dinner/drinks
          Tavern law can be a fun place for drinks and a bite: http://www.tavernlaw.com/details.htm
          Homegrown sandwiches just opened in the Melrose building and that is not too too far http://eathomegrown.com/
          A new pizza place (I have not tried it yet) just opened yesterday at 10th and Pike to good reviews: http://www.capitolhillseattle.com/2010/07/15/big-mario-brings-big-slices-to-e-pike
          El Mestizo is a newer Mexican Place on James and Broadway that is good:
          http://www.elmestizorestaurant.com/ Not really typical Mexican.
          And of course there is Quinns http://quinnspubseattle.com/ as well as several other newer places in the area. Hopefully this should give you a good start.
