Seattle Kitchen: Best brunch spots in townon April 6, 2012 @ 4:21 pm (Updated: 12:00 pm - 4/16/12 )
The Seattle Kitchen trio, heard on 97.3 KIRO FM, has a few fail-proof brunch haunts.
Katy O is a fan of Le Pichet on First Ave. because "I love those baked eggs. I like the little dish, I like that room."
She added that it's sort of the quintessential spot for an urban breakfast with cute people to watch.
Thierry Rautureau admits he's not a big fan of brunch, but likes Tom Douglas' restaurant Lola and "not because it's your restaurant, because it's a good restaurant."
As for Tom, he says Vera's Restaurant in Ballard is a family tradition that he started when he could put his daughter's car seat up at the table. They often make a visits together when she's home from college.
"These days, I get a sausage patty, some sauteed spinach and some whole wheat toast."
What? Tom Douglas eats whole wheat toast and spinach at brunch? It's a shocking claim even to Thierry and Katy.
Tom's lack of eggs prompted a hearty debate about how to make a good omelette. Katy described Tom's as a flat pancake and Thierry's does his like an airy, rolled crepe.
"Mine are much better than Thierry's because we use our neighbor's eggs from the farm in Prosser," explained Tom.
And to Thierry for the rebuttal?
"We get our eggs from a young Chinese woman from Mount Vernon, thank you very much." She apparently, knows all the chickens by name.
Regardless of your favorite omelette style or where to sit down mid-morning, Tom confirms we Seattlelites love our brunch.
"We do more business on Saturday and Sunday (at Dahlia Lounge) than we do Monday through Friday."
