Sleepless in Seattle: 5 Breakfast Spots That Will Get You Happily Out of Bed
Because sleeping in is overrated. Start your morning right with these 5 Seattle breakfast spots in Seattle.
Can't you see that it's just raining? Ain't no need to go outside...
Oh beautiful, eclectic, rainy Seattle, how we love you so. That being said, have you ever woken up to rain on your window pane and decided, "I'm not adult-ing today" ? Everyone's been there! So we've rounded up the top 5 reasons to get you out of bed on a rainy Seattle morning with the city's best breakfast spots.
1. Local 360 Cafe & Bar
This sustainable restaurant offers more than a great dining experience. Local 360 aims to source all of their products with in a 360 mile radius of Seattle, supporting only the most humane farms. Their brunch menu reflects the care that goes into each dish. In the mood for something sinfully savory? Try the Hangtown Fry, an open-faced bacon & caramelized onion omelette with creole spiced oysters and a celery root remoulade. (Honestly, they had me at bacon but I'll happily take the rest). If you're the adventurous type then the rabbit sausage is a must. Something sweet? French toast with apple compote & whiskey creme anglaise should do the trick.

3. Biscuit Bitch
Ok well, if the name didn't already lure you in then the food certainly will. Biscuits and gravy are the ultimate breakfast meal. This place takes the classic and brings it to so many new levels. Owner Kimmie Spice made her vision a reality, bringing some southern warm and comfort to break up the 'Seattle chill'. The menu ranges from creations such as the Hot Mess Bitch- Biscuit, gravy, garlic grits smothered in cheese, with a grilled Louisiana hot link and jalapenos for just $11.20 (let that sink in for a minute) to sweeter options such as the Nutty Bitch: Biscuit, Nutella, and bananas topped with whipped cream for $5.80. In addition to the endless varieties of biscuits you can enjoy breakfast sandwiches both savory and sweet. Gluten free and vegetarian options are also available. We see no con's to this b*tchin breakfast spot.

4. Lowell's Restaurant
For the past 100 years Lowell's has been offering some amazing food with a view to match. Lowell's captures the essence of Pike Place market with the same charm it had back in 1957 when it was still known as Manning's Cafeteria (the Public Market's flagship). On the first and third floor offers a more 'laid back' atmosphere where patrons order at the counter and seat themselves to enjoy views of the Olympic Mountains or Seattle's port. The second floor offers traditional sit down seating to enjoy the spectacular views. The food you ask? Only the freshest seafood and unique creations from this kitchen. Try their famous dungeness crab omelet, house smoked lox, or one of the many benedict creations. You won't be disappointed.

All organic, all house made fresh for 36 years. The crumpet shop offers a unique breakfast spot. This Seattle gem takes pride in their product, nearly everything is made in house. The Crumpet Shop offers homemade organic lemon curd and chocolate hazelnut spread which pairs perfectly with their ricotta cheese (also made in-house). The menu consists of a variety of whole leaf teas, house made scones, and crumpets, of course. Can you say YUM? Try out the RAM (Ricotta, Almond Butter & Marmalade) crumpet, or an organic scone with locally sourced raspberry marmalade from Sidhu Farms.
