Seattle Breakfast Restaurants near Belltown

After many trips to Seattle, it seemed like it was time to finally write a piece dedicated to breakfast options the city has to offer in Belltown and the tourist area of Pike Place Market.

So if you find yourself planning on being in the Belltown area, here are three places to try:

This french cafe is a place I find myself going to often. With a traditional menu of French food offerings, there is plenty of quality to choose from. If you are a breakfast traditionalist, you might not find it to be your kind of place. There were group of southern Americans who sat next to us and opted to leave when they were told "no" the the question one of them posed: "Do you have any taters?".

Bacco Cafe:
Another great breakfast option located on the southern end of Belltown, just a few blocks from the tourist haven of Pike Street. Like Le Pinchet, Bacco has a menu with a less than typical American breakfast feel, with a heavy Italian flavor. But it does have a number of more traditional options. You're best bet though is to try something outside your comfort range...you won't be disappointed.

Sweet Iron Waffles:
I'm almost including this as a joke since a waffle is so easy, any place can make them. But when you go most of a year living in a country without much in the form of syrup, good bacon, or even waffles, you find the best way to get a fix is the quickest. Sweet Iron is located downtown, which is a ghost town on the weekends. But for a good price, you can get one of their waffles made to order in about 3 minutes.

There are a number of good options of their Liege waffles to choose from. You'll find the traditional Strawberry & whipped cream. But you can also try their Banana Brulee with Caramel Sauce, Brie & Basil, and my choice, the Bacon & Maple Syrup waffle.
