1. Portage Bay Cafe

Seattle’s University neighborhood is where you’ll find the original Portage Bay location, but there are now five locations sprinkled around Seattle that make it easier than ever to enjoy their delicious brunch offerings. From benedicts to bowls, burritos to their breakfast bar, your tastebuds will delight at Portage Bay. We love their local, organic and sustainable menu.

2. Skillet Food

If you find yourself in Capitol Hill, you have to check out Skillet Diner. The relaxed atmosphere, award-winning food and locally-sourced ingredients make this place a must-go. We love their humble beginnings roaming the streets in an Airstream. Skillet has a loyal following, so while we can ensure you’ll love the food, you should also be prepared for a wait if you’re dropping in on the weekend. We highly suggest trying the fried chicken and waffles. You won’t be disappointed.

E. Union St.

3. The Lodge at St. Edward

Weekend brunch at the Lodge at St. Edward is a crowd-pleaser. Little ones will love visiting the secluded historic landmark tucked away in dense forests. Cedar + Elm is the restaurant on-site, and it boosts a delicious brunch menu on the weekends. Making a reservation is easy on their website, which makes trip planning a breeze. The restaurant is airy and teaming with history. We highly recommend the banana pancakes!

Insider Tip: After brunch, head to the playground just steps from the front door of the hotel. Explore the expansive trails meandering through the property and take a trip to the scenic shores of Lake Washington. It’s a great way to start the day.

4. Rusty Pelican

Located in Edmonds, Woodinville, and Millcreek, Rusty Pelican Café serves up classic American dishes that are worth the rave reviews they receive. Our favorite location is located in the quaint city of Edmonds. It’s perfectly settled in the heart of Main St. where you shop to your heart’s content. We love exploring all the boutique offerings in Edmonds. And in the summer, it’s a great place to go after visiting the farmer’s market.

Insider Tip: After filling tiny tummies, walk down to the water and enjoy the ferry’s coming and going from Brackett’s Landing.

5. Geraldine’s Counter Restaurant

Nearly 1,500 glowing reviews on Yelp makes Geraldine’s Counter a hit. Located in Columbia City, this adorable diner is a perfect place to satiate a comfort food craving. And you have to try the French toast. They don’t take reservations though, so head on in early!

4872 Rainer Ave. S.

6. Bellden Café

Great coffee, good food, and friendly staff. Bellden Café is the “Nicest Place in Washington,” according to Reader’s Digest. Seriously, they are so nice! You won’t want to leave this supportive, den in Bellevue. Another reason to visit? It’s located just blocks from other family-friendly attractions, like the Imagination Playground. Stop in for food and then venture over to the park for a weekend playdate.

Bellevue, WA

7. Meet the Moon

Leschi’s best kept secret is out of the bag. Take this post as an excuse to visit Meet the Moon. Their cinnamon rolls alone are a reason to make the trek to Leschi. Go for the delicious food, but stay for the adorable neighborhood, friendly staff and bountiful breakfast plates. We heard their biscuits and gravy are back on the weekday menu, and we are over the moon!

120 Lakeside Ave.

8. Seattle Biscuit Company

Kid-friendly, cozy and arguably the best biscuits in town—you’ve come to the right place! Seattle Biscuit Company makes handcrafted biscuit goodness from scratch. Every biscuit is made with love, care and a dash of creativity. You’ll love their offerings!

4001 Leary Way NW

9. Lola

Weekend brunch at Lola comes highly recommended. Located in downtown Seattle, Lola offers Greek-influenced cuisine and features local Seattle flavors. The breakfast (brunch if you roll in late like us) is delicious. If you’re craving a Greek scramble, golden brown pancakes or Challah French toast, we have the perfect place for you to visit.

Insider Tip: Their made to order doughnuts are delightful. And you read that right: made to order!
