Hi I’m Emma and I love to brunch! I personally love eating my way through Seattle. I’m always looking for new places to eat but I also love coming back to my favorite restaurants. So today I’m rounding up 10 of my favorite brunch spots in Seattle.
If you’re heading to Seattle this spring or live in Seattle and looking for brunch recommendations in Seattle, this blog post is for you!
Brunch in Seattle #1: Rock Creek Seafood & Spirits – Fremont
If you’re ready for oyster benedicts, apple and ricotta biegnets, and buttermilk biscuits, you’re ready for Rock Creek Seafood and & Spirits. The food is AMAZING. My first time visiting was last year but I recently took my friend Ribicca here and we loved it. The portions are generous and the staff was super nice! Here is Rockcreek’s brunch menu.
Brunch in Seattle #2: Monsoon Seattle – Capitol Hill
Dim sum and brunch? YES PLEASE! I discovered Monsoon Seattle in Capitol Hill working on a collaborations with Resy (a reservation app!) last year. I took my friends Janna and Katie and we got a mix of lunch and brunch. I personally love eggs benedict so I ordered the crab benedict.
Besides the food, the restaurant has a great aesthetic on the inside! You can find Monsoon Seattle’s menu here.
Brunch in Seattle #3: Mr. West Café & Bar – Downtown Seattle
I personally love Mr. West for brunch and happy hour! It’s such a cute spot and their brunch menu is pretty simple but still so yummy. I love the avocado toast and the house cured wild salmon toast.
Brunch in Seattle #4: The Wandering Goose – Capitol Hill
I didn’t know about the Wandering Goose until my friend Jose suggested we go here for brunch. We went on a Saturday and the line was out the door! I was worried we weren’t going to be able to find a table, but we ended up finding a spot after we ordered. The portions was big and the food was delicious! You can find the Wandering Goose menu here.
Brunch in Seattle #5: Pesos Kitchen & Lounge – Queen Anne
Pesos is one of my favorite spots in Seattle! It’s a Mexican eatery located in Lower Queen Anne. If you’re near the Space Needle or the Pacific Science Center, I’d recommend stopping by Pesos. I love Pesos for dinner and I also love Pesos weekend brunch. I’ve found that even when the restaurant is super busy, the staff still does a great job and provides great service. I usually order a benedict but their scrambles and omelets are also good!
Brunch in Seattle #6: The Burgundian – Greenlake
If you’re planning on walking the lake on a weekend, I would recommend stopping by the Burgundian afterwards. It’s about a mile walk from Peet’s Coffee on Greenlake, so I’d recommend driving after you’re done walking the lake.
I think my favorite thing on the brunch menu is the chicken and waffles. You can find the Burgundian brunch menu here.
Brunch in Seattle #7: Thackeray – Wallingford/Fremont
I love Thackeray in Fremont! It’s super spacious inside, I love the aesthetic, and the food is always yummy. I recommend the Shakshouka and the braised bacon benedict. I haven’t had the spiced fried chicken and pancakes but I’ve had friends ordered this dish and loved it. You can find Thackeray’s menus here.
My friend Ribicca and I were so happy after we ate here lol.
Brunch in Seattle #8: Volunteer Park Café – Capitol Hill
If you’re planning to stop by Volunteer Park and the Conservatory, I would recommend also stopping by Volunteer Park Café. It gets pretty busy on the weekends but it’s always a solid spot for brunch. I’m a big fan of their bacon and egg Panini. You can find the breakfast and lunch menu here.
Brunch in Seattle #9: Portage Bay Café – South Lake Union/Ballard/Greenlake
Portage Bay is one of the first breakfast spots I went to in college. The University District location was always BUSY! I feel like every Portage Bay location I visit is always super busy but the staff do a great job getting people in and out. This is my little sister’s favorite brunch spot in Seattle so far.
One of the best things about Portage Bay is the Breakfast Bar. If you order pancakes or the French toast, you can head up to the breakfast bar and top your brunch with your favorite fruits, nuts, and whipped cream! You can find their breakfast and brunch menu here.
Brunch in Seattle #10: Morsel – University District
If you love biscuits for breakfast, you HAVE to go to Morsel in either the University District. I discovered Morsel my senior year of college. And I literally would run here before class if I wanted to treat myself for breakfast. My favorite breakfast sandwich on the menu is the Spanish Fly!
Where should I brunch in Seattle next?
