1) Cursed Oak

Chef Simon Pantet has long been creating delightful dishes since the inception of Cursed Oak, a bar and kitchen in the heart of the Belltown neighborhood. With large open-air windows and plenty of spacious seating, their new brunch service will for sure be a hot place to dine. The bar also boasts a wide selection of spirits, including some fine selections of mescal and whiskey.
Donuts so fluffy and sweet, they are perfect for breakfast or dessert! PC: Lola Facebook
This Tom Douglas restaurant has long been celebrated as a Seattle brunch destination. Lola takes a Mediterranean approach to the Pacific Northwest’s bounty of fresh ingredients. Patio seating is surely a must if you have the option to do so. If mom has a sweet tooth, be sure to get the made-to-order donuts, accompanied with Marscapone and a fresh seasonal jelly. These donuts were so good, they were Giada De Laurentiis’s “Best Thing I Ever Ate”
3) Belltown Brewing
This brewhouse has a great selection of craft beers from around Seattle and beyond. PC: Belltown Brewing

Located on the corner of Bell St. and 2nd Ave, this neighborhood brewhouse has become a beacon for Belltown, serving beer brewed in-house and crafting delicious bites from pizzas, avocado toast, and egg scrambles. You will love the baked eggs, cooked and served in a mini cast iron skillet. Happy Hour is also a hidden treasure, with full pints for just $6.

Dungeness Crab eggs benedict is a fan favorite at Lowell’s in Pike Place Market.
With its scenic views over Elliot Bay, Lowell’s is one great place to be when it comes to brunch with Mom. Three floors of dining space and large windows for viewing, the second level offers full service dining while the other two are self-seating. Whatever your preference, the Dungeness Crab Eggs Benedict is not to be missed. We mentioned it in a previous blog about Lowell’s being one of the best restaurants in Pike Place Market, and we still hold that to be true. After your meal, take a stroll down the main and north arcade and enjoy the beauty of tulips and flower bouquets.
6) Tillikum Place Café
Sweet or Savory Dutch Babues is exactly what is needed for a perfect weekend. PC: Yelp
Looking for a hidden gem? Then look no further than Tilikum Place Café. A gem in Seattle’s bustling restaurant scene, Tilikum Place Café brings a European touch to a contemporary American menu. Imagine the warmth of Dutch Babies, a dense baked pancake, topped with lemon and powdered sugar, or a savory Quiche with potato, leek, bacon & gruyere. With only 14 seats, reservations are required, as they fully book every weekend.
7) Lost Lake Café
Open 24-hours to serve your foodie needs. PC: Lost Lake Cafe Facebook
This popular Capitol Hill Diner has long been a place for those who love good food and drink. Open 24-hours, patio seating during the daytime hours are usually available but in high demand. Lost Lake also has an extensive menu with fun takes on omelets, scrambles, and breakfast classics like corned beef hash, ensuring there is something for everyone. Mimosas can also be ordered by the pint, or better yet – make it a pitcher. Cheers!
8) Feed Co. Burgers – Central District
Brunch is only served at the Central location, but delicious burgers can be foundat their Redmond Location as well. PC: Feed Co. Burgers
Feed Co. burgers may be off the beaten path from the bustling downtown area, but the charm here is hard to miss. Taking pride in quality ingredients and honest prices, their weekend-only brunch menu let’s their creative side reign, where the creativity of Chef Scott Staples shine in the form of Loco Mocos, Strawberry French Toast, Chicken & Waffles, and bottom-less mimosas. The best part: Free parking in their private fenced parking lot.
Isan Thai cuisine comes from the Northeastern region of Thailand.
Want to do brunch with a twist? We love Soi, an Issan Thai restaurant on Capitol Hill. Most folks won’t think of Kao Soi, a northern-style curry noodle soup, as typical brunch fare. But trust us – once you eat here, you’ll definintely be coming back. For brunch try the Kai Grata – chinese sausage, two eggs, pork belly, green onions, mushrooms, tomato and spinish all in a skillet, served with a rustic peanut toast. For drinks, enjoy a carafe of mango mimosa and cheers to the weekend!
