Brunch in Seattle

jacqueline f Jun 23, 2011 05:54 PM

My sister, Mother-In-Law and my 2 1/2 year old son will be in Seattle this Sunday morning. I thought it would be nice to have brunch in the city. I'd love recommendations for an interesting brunch. I'd like it to be slightly different. I'm personally not that excited about pancakes and french toast. The last meal I ate in Seattle was at Poppy, and I was stoked. I looked at the menu for a place called Spring Hill and I thought it looked great, but is it appropriate for a child and do you folks have any idea of the price range? The prices aren't included on the menu online. I also heard that Portage Bay was good.

Any thoughts?

Thank you so so much for your help!!

    I haven't been to either of those, but Bastille is nice, and the Ballard Sunday Market will be going on so you have that bonus. I wouldn't normally call Bastille a kids' type of place, but it's SO freakin' loud in there your kid could have a meltdown and no one would notice. They also have an outdoor patio.

      Spring Hill is awesome and a well-behaved two year old will be ok there- It should run under 20pp unless you're drinking early and hard. The apple fritter is outstanding, as is the pop-over and the saiman- really brunch is fantastic there- probably my favorite place in town. Slightly less dressy and also unique (and kid-friendly) is Nettletown. Well worth a look

        Thanks so much! We had an awesome brunch at Spring hill. Perfect with the little one. The saiman was delicious as was the bloody mary!

          You're welcome- I deeply love that joint. The food there tastes like people care about what they're doing and know how to do it.

        I haven't tried their brunch yet, but I do like Revel and one of the cooks had recommended coming in on the weekend. This might be something you'd be interested in :)


        Portage Bay is always a lovely choice for brunch and not too pricey~
