Restaurant:

Glo's

1621 E Olive Way
Seattle, WA, United States

"Great breakfast! Hours: Mon-Fri 7am-3pm , Sat-Sun 7am-4pm The Scene This tiny pie-wedge of a coffee shop buzzes with energy, from the open kitchen to the colorful crowd waiting outside. It's comfortable enough to please the grandparents, but quite popular with the diverse residents of Capitol Hill. Service is friendly, if occasionally harried. The Food Greasy-spoon purists should keep an open mind--all the diner classics are here, but with some welcome twists. Corned beef hash and eggs isn't the standard mesh--instead, chunks of fresh-cut corned beef and potatoes are mixed in a spicy tomato sauce. A homemade touch punches up waffles and pancake specials like the buckwheat with apple-rhubarb compote. Eggs are perfectly poached for the Benedict and slathered in a light, lemony hollandaise. Lunch standards get special treatment as well--the turkey sandwich dresses the fresh-roasted meat with cream cheese and cranberry sauce. Even the basic BLT scores high with fresh bread, crisp bacon and flavorful Dijon mayo."

Restaurant:

Memos Mexican Restaurant

Seattle, WA, United States

"This is where my sister Lisa, my niece Vanessa and I LOVE to eat at on the weekends. Its good, 24 hours and more importantly its on the cheaper side. :)"

Restaurant:

Portage Bay Cafe

4130 Roosevelt Way NE
Seattle, WA, United States

"This is an awesome, tasty, yum-tastic breakfast joint. Lauren(my soon to be sister-in-law)recommended this restaurant for my birthday and it did not disappoint! The Scene Bleary-eyed UW students and neighborhood locals line up on the sidewalk during weekend brunch, sipping mugs of tea while waiting for their tables. Inside, the light, spacious room pays homage to Portage Bay's history: an old-fashioned crew boat hangs from the high ceiling, and old area photos grace the walls. The harried-but-talented waitstaff has service down to a science. The Food During brunch, a sweet order gets you a trip to the breakfast bar--a long line of bowls of all-you-can-eat fresh fruit, whipped cream and maple syrup for toppings. The sinfully delicious bananas Foster French toast is a favorite--three giant-size slabs of challah smothered in a rum/brown sugar sauce with sauteed bananas. Savory choices include a long list of mainly organic omelets, migas and scrambles accompanied by crisp baked red potatoes. Lunch consists of a seasonally-changing list of salads, sandwiches and burgers."

Restaurant:

Twede's Cafe

137 W North Bend Way
North Bend, WA, United States

"The Scene Twede's has staked its claim to fame on David Lynch's television show Twin Peaks, which used the location as a backdrop for its Twin Peaks Cafe. Tourists soak up the quirky, diner atmosphere, complete with blue vinyl booths, linoleum floors, neon signs and Tweety Bird figures, but the local crowd, dressed in jeans and flannel shirts, make an appearance as well. Servers, coffee pot in hand, aren't above calling customers "hon" or "sweetie," as they push the cafe's cherry pie. The Food The food is good and the servings are huge. Most breakfasts, including omelets and bacon and eggs, are served with gut-busting servings of crisp hash browns. The Denver mix, buttery cubed potatoes, diced ham, onions, green pepper, scrambled eggs and cheddar cheese, is a gooey, wonderful mess of food that could easily feed four. The cherry pie, with flaky, homemade crust, is decent, but not outstanding."

Seattle Kubota Garden

9817 55th Ave S
Seattle, WA, United States

"The 25-acre Kubota Garden in Seattle’s southeastern Rainier Beach neighborhood was begun in 1927 by self-taught gardener Fujitaro Kubota. A 1907 immigrant from Japan, Kubota was dedicated to blending the plants of the Northwest with traditional landscape design principles of his native culture. Despite enduring significant anti-Asian sentiment during his lifetime, including a four-year internment in Idaho, Kubota remained committed to sharing his passion with the public. Kubota Gardens is now owned and operated by the City of Seattle. Traditional walking paths wind through the hillside park, passing between ponds, streams, and waterfalls. Highlights of the park include the Moon Bridge and a new entrance gate built in 2004. Self-guided tour maps are available at the garden near the information kiosk located in the parking lot."
