8 Best Brunch Spots in Seattle

There are so many best brunch Seattle restaurants. Every weekend we try to find another hot spot for the best egg Benedict or the perfect omelette in Seattle. The breakfast / brunch restaurants listed below are outstanding. They are each delicious in their own particular way. The best brunch Seattle restaurant requires 1. Fresh quality ingredients; 2. Friendly and prompt service; and 3. Best bang for your buck. Restaurants listed below are listed at random. 

Westward & Little Gull Grocery

I already voted Westward for Best Date Night Restaurant because of their fabulous patio seating.  I love the extra mile they take to make fresh wood-oven bagels from scratch. I love their Foraged wild mushroom frittata, Fried Pacific oyster roll with fried pickles and remoulade sauce, and Smoked manila clam dip. Their menu is Northwest seafood focused with Greek Mediterranean flavor profiles.


Stylish eatery with New American  plates, craft cocktails and pretty marble bar. This place has you putting on the cutest outfit for brunch without trying too hard! The sleek dining room is also filled with seasonal menu from Chef Walter Edward making gluten free Red Quinoa & House Smoked Salmon Bowl  with Poached Egg and Avocado, Meyer Lemon and Ricotta Pancake, and Herb and Goat Cheese Omelette. Bonus? Stumptown Coffee.


Lola has the best donuts shaken with cinnamon sugar and served with seasonal rhubarb jam and vanilla mascarpone. These donuts are bit sized squares and are enough for your weekend brunch.  They also have a lot of great Mediterranean focused dishes. If you are hungry, I suggest Tom’s big breakfast filled with Mediterranean octopus, winter squash, leeks, fresno chili, bacon, sage, garlic yogurt, vadouvan, poached egg, toast. 

8 Best Brunch Spots in Seattle

Local 360 

The menu is sustainability and fresh focused. Everything is locally sourced within a 360 mile radius. The restaurant is cozy and has a nice atmosphere.  There are also private booths for two. Order the fried chicken and waffles with crispy batter. The PB&J bon bons is also a must!

Tilikum Place

How can brunch be complete with classic egg’s benedict? Ask you server for daily benedict special. We liked the fresh Dungeness crab with spinach and hollandaise sauce. They have sinful French toasts and Dutch baby – fluffy pancakes cooked in a hot cast iron pan with your choice of sweet (fruits) or savory (bacon and cheddar) ingredients.

Toulouse Petit 

If you are looking for a Southern deep dish breakfast, than this hip Cajun / Creole fare is your go to place. Toulouse Seafood Gumbo,  powdered sugar beignets with chicory café anglaise, oyster and bacon benedict made with two caged free eggs and creole crawfish, shrimp and andouille sausage classic breakfast. Don’t forget the Buttermilk biscuits and creole sausage gravy! Toulouse Petit also has happy hour and fixed-price menus.

Argodolce is one of Chef Maria Hine’s three restaurants that uses local and organic ingredients. Vegan and gluten free options available. I love the soft scrambled eggs with pancetta, radicchio, and basil. Seasonal fruit waffles such as toasted pumpkin seeds, candied ginger and Chantilly cream.  Also, bottomless mimosas during brunch.


Solid weekend scrambles with beet hash, perfectly fried oyster benedict on a nice brioche, bacon, and creamy hollandaise sauce. Chef Eric Donnelly left Toulouse Petit to RockCreek that features global and sustainable seafood.  For dessert, order a suger dusted caramelized apple and ricotta beignets with vanilla bean anglaise.

Bastille Cafe & Bar

Bastille Cafe is a charming restaurant with great ambiance and seasonal menu. The décor is vintage and they have a rooftop produce and herb garden. They are consistent and have great French menu complete with moules frites, steak tartare served with truffled potato chips, croquet madame, chanterelle omelette and more.
