There’s something wonderful about Sunday morning brunch. Sleep in, having someone else serve up a tasty, toasty breakfast (and perhaps even a drink), chatting with friends and loved ones – what a great way to begin wrapping up your weekend. Our list of best places to get the best brunch in Seattle includes Salty’s on Alki, Macrina Bakery & Cafe, and Volterra.

Salty’s On Alki Beach

1936 Harbor Avenue. S.W.
Seattle, WA 98126

Salty’s offers up a huge buffet on Saturdays and Sundays. In addition to all the usual staples (eggs Benedict, bacon and so on), you’ll find a wide selection of fresh seafood from around the region. How about all-you-can-eat Dungeness crab while you take in a spectacular view of the downtown Seattle waterfront? Plus, after splurging at the buffet, you can take a walk along the beach to work some it off.

Macrina Bakery & Cafe

Multiple locations, check their website

While Macrina’s roots are in its delicious bread, fortuantely for all of us they’ve opened cafes and serve up some of the best brunch fare in town. The fresh-baked pastries are delicious. Be warned, the seating areas can be very limited, so it’s best to get there early and get on the list.

5411 Ballard Ave NW
Seattle, WA 98107

Perhaps the fanciest place on this list – but not too over-the-top. Dishes clock in at around $10 for brunch fare, and you won’t be disappointed by the portion size. The challah french toast features 4 thick-cut slices and may overwhelm some diners – you can get a half portion of it though. Sample their wild mushroom eggs benedict.
