Before answering the question of whether you want your eggs poached, fried or scrambled, the day's qualms around brunch are now challenged further with new contenders now offering the weekend meal.
Seattle Met's restaurant of the year keeps on giving us reason to rejoice. The palm frond–speckled Vietnamese spot on Pike Street offers soups/noodles, an eggs bao'nedict (as the name implies, a steaming bao bun filled with Canadian bacon topped with poached eggs and hollandaise), and opened faced golden brown omelettes; not to mention the option of adding a crispy fried egg to anything. Enjoy Saturday and Sunday between 10am and 2 pm.
Reservations: For parties of six or more.
The new brunch menu now provides more ways to explore Capitol Hill's global cuisine mecca on 14th Avenue, starting November 21. The opening menu includes Israeli shakshuka, South African bunny chow, and Filipino tosilog; brunch will run Saturdays and Sundays 10am to 3pm.
Reservations: Limited. Call or email for inquiry on availability.
The South Lake Union brewery and restaurant opened at the very end of last month, and serves eclectic brunch fare like curries and biscuits, congee with a sous vide egg, and a spiced lamb patty with hollandaise. A rotating brioche steam bun and a waffle okonomiyaki welcome guests Saturday and Sunday 10:30am to 3pm.
Reservations: For parties of five or more through phone or email only.
The cafe on Bellevue Avenue E will end its regular dinner service on November 14, focusing instead on its brunch menu, which Barjot will serve every day of the week starting the following Monday, the 16th. The kitchen will be open 8am- 2pm serving simply stated cuisine that respects seasonality. Keep a watchful eye on the website for news of the pending daily menu.
