Post-wedding brunch

Hi Chowhounders!
My fiance and I are looking for comfy, low-key, but delicious place for a post-wedding brunch in Seattle. We have about 40 Southerners coming into town we'd like to entertain.

Any advice is appreciated.

  1. I think the Boat Street Cafe would be a lovely setting for the occassion and the food is yummy.
    Other ideas:
    Salty's - for the view to impress, but not the food
    Steel Head diner - Very NW and causual, stroll around the market afterwards

    1. Ivar's Salmon House has a good Sunday brunch and a wide variety of good. Salmon, mussels, clams, oysters, crab, cod, prime rib, ham, lamb and some chicken dish as well last time I was there... plus nice salads, omelette station, crepes, eggs bene, etc. and some creme bruelee. They have banquet rooms available.

        Sorry to rag on your post but I think Ivar's is AWFUL. Very low quality and everything has a weird sweetness. They do have big banquet rooms, though.

          I think "awful" is probably a bit much for Ivar's. It's not the best seafood in the city, but I'd say it's pretty good for relatively affordable seafood. (I prefer it to Chinook's or Duke's)

          The Salmon House in particular is a cut above the other Ivar's spots, and I'm totally good with taking out of town guests there, although partly for the view and the unique long house atmosphere.

      2. We had ours at Anthony's on Shilshole and it was quite nice. I won't tell you how exhausted I was after the wedding but everyone who was there had a good time.

        1. well depending on the day of the week of the wedding and your budget, the sunday brunch at
          6/7 restaurant in the Edgewater hotel is excellent. the view is very nice also, especially on a sunny day.

          1. I've never been, but I hear good things about the Corson Building.
