Breakfast near market or downtown

I'll be staying at the waterfront Marriott with my sister who's on business and having work breakfasts, and I'd like to start the day with something quick, delicious, and different without having to travel too far. I prefer savory to sweet. I want to try The Crumpet Shop and Piroshky. Any other suggestions? I'll also take my sister out for breakfast on Monday morning and I was thinking maybe Cafe Campagne or 13 Coins, but I'd love any other ideas for that also.Thanks!

  1. Breakfast - Le Pichet in The Market area. Local 360 is also getting a lot of press, but I'm underwhelmed so far. Of course, Lowell's in The Market is quintessential Seattle greasy spoon with terrific views. For shabby chic try The Shanty across from the Olympic Sculpture Park. Again, old Seattle.

    13 Coins is always a fav at any time of day, but especially for breakfast between 1:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.

    1. for a quick breakfast, walk down to macrina bakery. they have amazing baked goods and i hear their breakfast sandwich is awesome. dahlia workshop is bit of walk but a great way to explore seattle. they specialize in biscuits (breakfast sandwich, biscuits and gravy, etc...). i also highly recommend the bbq pork humbow at mee sum pastry.

      one of my favorite breakfast places in downtown seattle is lola's. portage bay is also a popular breakfast spot in seattle. i would skip 13 coins.

        Thanks so much. Now I have more breakfasts than I have mornings. ;-) I am definately adding Le Pichet and Dahlia Workshop. Do you know if there's a bus from market area to Dahlia Workshop? I'm still learning the bus website.

          The SLU(T) will get you there (South Lake Union Line - Trolley) But that starts up at Westlake:

            Dahlia is less than half a mile from the market so it may not be worth your time to wait for the bus. The trolly won't get you there. My recommends in/near the market would be coffee and croissants at Le Panier (any time of day) or breakfast at Cafe Campagne.

            1. re: hareforce1

              You are thinking of the Dahlia Bakery, which is indeed only a few blocks from the market (and not as interesting as Macrina or some of the places at Pike Place). The Dahlia Workshop is at Westlake & Harrison, downstairs from Serious Pie #2.

              That said, I don't think the Workshop is really worth the trip unless you're planning to test-drive a Tesla or climb the wall at REI afterwards. It's a nice walk (or short SLUT ride), but there's not much else to do in the area unless you work at Amazon or are interested in architecture.

              1. re: lavaca

                Sorry, didn't see the Workshop part in Dahlia. Was trying to figure out how the SLU trolley would get you there=)

                1. re: lavaca

                  The biscuit sandwiches are really good, tho'. Well, at least the bacon & fried tomato one is. I've also had the sausage and the ham & cheese and they were just ok. The bacon one? YUM.

                  1. re: lavaca

                    I was thinking of taking the streetcar there and then walking over to EMP. Is that doable? I figure I could walk off some biscuit. ;-)

                    1. re: roxanne207

                      It's about a mile from the Dahlia Workshop to EMP. Ignore Google and walk south to Denny rather than north to Mercer or Broad.
