Via @whenpigsfeast

Brunch is something we take very seriously. It sets the tone for the entire weekend. Only the best brunch restaurants in Seattle are fit for the task, so we’ve got a guide to the must-try spots! Plus, when our spring weather is treating us so well, it’s hard not to start every day off with a celebratory meal (and maybe a couple mimosas).

Okay, no more funny business! We’ve compiled some favourites, some hidden gems, and some brunches you may have overlooked before, and thrown ’em all into this list. Here are our picks for places with some of the best brunch spots in Seattle that you should try this spring.

ROCKCREEK

We’re in Seattle, so let’s eat seafood for brekkie! Oysters on the half shell and wild prawns and grits are some of the gems this place serves up. Bonus: the vaulted timber ceilings aren’t so hard on the eyes.

Where: 4300 Fremont Ave N

THE WANDERING GOOSE

biscuit brunch sandwich

This is the best NW spot for Southern classics. Tuck into fried chicken and waffles, perfectly crispy biscuit sandwiches, and cake to die for. It’s like your Texan friend making you breakfast without the award politics talk.

Where: 403 15th Ave E

TILIKUM PLACE CAFE

Don’t be put off by this cafe’s proximity to the touristy bits of the city, it’s a local favorite. It’s major bang for your buck, and the people watching out the front door is absolutely prime.

Where: 407 Cedar St

THE LAKEHOUSE

The food here is super local, as fresh as it gets, and prepared on point. Additionally, there’s beautiful decor, stellar service, and come on! Just look at those pancakes. They’re works of art!

Where: 10455 Northeast 5th Place, Bellevue

GATHER KITCHEN AND BAR

What do you get when you combine family-style dining with a dedicated Hangover Specials menu? Your judgy aunt giving you side eye from across the table. Don’t worry, their brioche bread pudding French toast will fix ya right up!

Where: 5605 22nd Ave NW

SALARE

salare brunch

This place has a deserving rep as one of the best brunch restaurants in Seattle. The chef behind this brunch is award-winning, which is why that croissant sandwich tastes so good. The menu’s a tad eclectic, but everything comes out of the kitchen absolutely top-notch.

Where: 2404 64th St NE

JOULE

joule brunch

This family-style Korean spot serves up classics like hash and eggs. They’ve also got some lesser known gems like chorizo honey Bao with apple kimchi. We hadn’t tried apple kimchi either, but trust us- it’s amazing! Added bonus: there’s all you can eat.

Where: 3505 Stone Way N

MONSOON

crab eggs benny

Dim sum brunch. Two of our favorite things, one unexpected but oh so happy combination. We’re going to be over in the corner consuming large amounts of Dungeness crab benny and pho broth Bloody Marys.

Where: 615 19th Ave E

THE FAT HEN

Roll yourself out of bed to get here before there’s a wait. We know it’s hard, but it’s worth it. This little spot is a one-off breakfast heaven. Dive into their signature egg bakes, like the Alla Boscaiola with eggs, house-made tomato sauce, sausage, mushroom, and mozzarella.

Where: 1418 NW 70th St

NUE

nue

This is a trip around the world in one brunch, without the several thousand dollars of airfare. From Asian dishes to Dutch pepper bacon-stuffed pancakes, this ain’t no ordinary meal! You’ll be back for seconds, no doubt.

Where: 1519 14th Ave

That should sort your Saturdays and Sundays for a few weeks to come. Get out there and get your brunch on at some of the best spring brunches Seattle has to offer!
