Like the many other cloudy, drizzly day pursuits, like wine, microbrews, coffee, theater, and books, weekend brunch fits right in with the casual Seattle lifestyle. Bloody marys and the fairer mimosa are typically found on the menu along with all kinds of breakfast-to-lunch fare. We also found several popular spots that offer a bottomless mimosa—all you can drink of the sparking wine-fortified O.J. to wash down a hearty weekend meal.
8929 Roosevelt Way N.E.
Seattle, WA 98115
The Maple Leaf Grill is a cozy neighborhood pub restaurant in north Seattle, recently renovated by new management taking over an old bar and grill. The thoughtful and inventive menu is served up in generous portions, with weekly rotating specials, wine beer selection, and craft cocktails. Bottomless bloody marys and mimosas, made with fresh-squeezed O.J., are available all day on the weekends to accompany brunch or dinner. In winter, there’s a fireplace and a TV, and for warmer months, an outdoor patio.

Seattle, WA 98103
Seattle’s Only New York-style Jewish diner is located in the heart of hip-and-trendy Fremont. The service is sassy, like New York; the coffee is average, not like Seattle; the prices are modest; and the menu flaunts items you would expect: bagels, matzoh, latkes, blintzes, brisket, pastrami, and smoked fish. The breakfast menu is enormous, including pancakes, French toast, biscuits, burritos, and every kind of egg dish you can imagine. There’s also plenty of choices from the sandwich and burger menus. They don’t offer bottomless mimosas, but at just $2 a glass, or $4 for a double, they’re cheaper than other restaurants charging at least five times that, or more, for a bottomless glass.
709 N. 35th St.
Seattle, WA 98103
A Maria Hines restaurant, Agrodolce is a charming and upscale Italian-style trattoria featuring handmade pasta from a variety of heritage grains, milled in house into flour for the pasta. They’re open nightly for dinner which features a family style menu, lunch during the week, and brunch on weekends. The menus rotate seasonally. For brunch you may be offered waffles, eggs dishes such as hash, benedict, scrambles, and omelets, as well as pasta dishes or burgers. Along with beer and a few cocktails, you can order a mimosa, which they are happy to refill as often as needed while you enjoy your meal.
