Birthday brunch recs please :)

Hello Foodies!

I'm looking for a great brunch place to celebrate my birthday. Specifically, a good mix of sweet and savory offerings in a non-uptight, but warm and inviting environment.

Thanks in advance!!

Cheers,
AG

  1. We've enjoyed Cafe Campagne, at Pike PLace.
    The French French Toast is a favorite

      Thanks for suggestion. Cafe Campagne is a great restaurant, but it is the one place I've already been to... Any other suggestions?

    2. I like Tillikum Place Cafe. They have sweet AND savory dutch babies!

      1. Check out the Corson Building for Sunday Brunch. They have an excellent mix of sweets and savory goodies, in a real one-of-a-kind setting. Overall, they also just have terrific food.

        1. I second the Corson Building!
          If you want total variety and the whole "Brunch Experience" Portage Bay Cafe is very popular and there is always a long line.
          Boat Street Cafe (great French shabby chic atmosphere) as well.

            These are all great suggestions :) Love Tilikum and just had breakfast at Portage Bay Cafe this morning (delicious)! The toppings bar also looked amazing for the french toast/pancake options!

            Anita's Crepes might also be an option...super cute and I'm usually not a fan of savory crepes, but the bacon and cheese is SO good, and their French onion soup was great! Happy birthday!

          2. Many thanks for the great suggestions and birthday wishes. I'm curious about the Coson Building. What exact is it? I checked their website and there is no menu. Is it a "scheduled" restaurant?

            Ok, my turn to pay it foward.... For those of you that like Tilikum cafe, there is a coupon on offer through this link for a $100 gift certificate for $50. You have to register to get access and it's only good for the next 16 hrs. Enjoy!

                A-Girl... Corson Building changes up what they're serving all the time. Thursday and Friday dinners, they offer a limited menu based on what's at it's peak just then, and often on a theme. A sample menu is on their website: http://corsonbuilding.files.wordpress...

                Their big dinner on Saturday is fixed menu... I've never asked, but they might tell you what they're considering if you give them a call in advance. Brunch is largely the same. I've only been twice, and it was excellent each time, but was a small menu, and a side-board.
