We were staying @ the connecting hotel so grabbed some breakfast here. It was good & our waitress was nice but $50 for 2 people to have breakfast w/no alcohol is a bit pricey. I would recommend walking down to the Biscuit B!tch.

We had two breakfasts here while staying at the Alexis Hotel, where it is located. Strangely, the coffee was outstanding the first time but not as good the second time, which I assume has to do with the way it was prepared. The food was...More

There is a space toward the back that has books in a shelf but don't be misled, it's not a bookstore. I can't say it lends that much to the ambiance which is more akin to a cafe but it's not really a cafe either....More

We ate breakfast here on our first morning in Seattle. My wife said they had good coffee. The tea suited my taste. The food seemed a little salty, but other than that, I was ready to go back the next morning. Good food.

So the bar side st nights, sucks. Last call at 1130 and we arrived at 1110 to be told they're closing in 10 mins? Breakfast on the other side is a joke, $16 for an omelette and $5 for coffee???
