Where do you go for the most important meal of the day in one of the coolest cities in the country? There’s no shortage of hip breakfast spots in Seattle. But let us get you started with some of the most delicious options.
Serving a mix of American and Italian cuisine in light and sunny digs, The Fat Hen gets your day started right. Try a hearty egg bake with tomato, basil, and mozzarella, a benedict wild Alaskan smoked salmon. Or, choose from simpler options like pastries, granola or toast topped with house-made ricotta and jam.
This sleek cafe in Capitol Hill churns out sweet and savory crepes filled with Nutella and fruit, smoked ham and Beecher’s cheddar, and egg and arugula. Toast with toppings like sliced avocado, smashed egg, and radish and butter, simple sandwiches and fried egg round out the menu.

For southern-style biscuits in the Pacific Northwest, look no further than Honest biscuits. Go classic with their Butterhole biscuit (served with jam, butter, or honey), try indulgent toppings like fried chicken, egg, bacon, sausage, country ham, Dungeness crab, or a combination of a bunch of them. Those with dietary restrictions are in luck, too; gluten-free and vegan options are available here.
It’s breakfast all day at Glo’s. It’s known for long waits, but also fantastic food. On weekends, you can even satisfy those late-night cravings, starting at midnight. You’ll find scrambles, benedicts, french toast, pancakes, and all of the traditional favorites.
Make your morning just a bit more French with cafe au lait and a pastry at this warm, inviting Capitol Hill eatery. Start your day with a pain et beurre (baguette with butter) or chocolat, almonds sauteed in olive oil and coarse sea salt, or yogurt with honey and walnuts.
Fresh organic, seasonal, and local fare take center stage at Portage Bay Cafe. And there are four locations in the Seattle area. Think avocado toast with Dungeness crab, a breakfast burrito with chorizo and pork shoulder, and burrata salad. For sweet entrees like pancakes and french toast, you can head up to the restaurant’s signature breakfast bar. Toppings include fresh fruit, nuts, and whipped cream.
