    During the evening, Lola is Tom Douglas’ modern take on Greek and Mediterranean cuisine. In the morning, Lola is one of Seattle’s most flavorful, well-executed brunch spots. 

    At Lola, you can treat yourself to one of its many standout items on the menu. My favorite dish is the Eggs Benedict. The dill gives the hollandaise sauce nice character that compliments well with the perfectly poached eggs and tasty biscuits. It also comes with a side of garlic smashed potatoes that were cooked and seasoned with herbs very nicely. These potatoes could probably be one my favorite side dishes.  The other dishes ordered were the omelet and the pancakes with sausage and vanilla mascarpone. My other go-to item at Lola is their made-to-order donuts (not pictured) that come out nice and warm with jam and mascarpone. So good!

    I liked Lola so much that I made it #2 on FH206 brunch picks in Seattle.  As a side note, you can make reservations for Lola on OpenTable to avoid the wait.

    The Boat Street Café is a charming rustic restaurant that is inspired by the French region of Provençal. The vision of Boat Street Café is to stimulate an exquisite dining experience by both its food and environment.

    We went to brunch here a few weeks ago to celebrate my fiancée’s sister’s birthday.  The brunch menu is pretty extensive with a good combination of sweet and savory. Also, I like the fact that their French menu is easy to interpret and you’re not left wondering what you just ordered. For my meal, I ordered the eggs benedict with goat cheese and artichokes. The rest of the table ordered the poached egg over pork hash, cornmeal custard cake with bananas, and corn pudding with sausage. The dishes are just the right portions and served with fruit and mix greens salad.

    The eggs benedict dish was delicious with the right balance of flavor in the hollandaise sauce. The only downside is that there was no meat in the dish, so for meat lovers, be sure to get a side of bacon or sausage. The pork hash was tasty as well with a smoky flavor to satisfy your savory needs. I didn’t try the other dishes but everyone looked pleased. 

    The other distinctive aspect about Boat Street Café is their atmosphere with slate tables, wood floors, and bistro lighting. The place looks like a setting for a Kinfolk magazine photo shoot. This space is perfect for socializing, being romantic, and celebrating special occasions. I enjoyed my experience at the Boat Street Cafe and look forward to dinner here sometime soon.

    Cliff House Bistro

    The Cliff House Bistro is one of San Francisco’s most fantastic and viewtastic brunch experiences. It provides classic old school California charm with a warm nostalgic feel. 

    The brunch started off with fresh buttery popovers that were so amazing. Then for the main course we had the Eggs San Francisco (their version of Crab Eggs Benedict) and the French Toast with bacon. I must say, the Eggs SF was way too delicious with fresh meaty crab, perfectly poached eggs, and a nice sauce. I was sad to have to share half of it with my fiancee, nevertheless the French Toast with bacon was a good choice too. It’s wonderful to have a good meal and overlooking the Pacific Ocean. I can live this lifestyle everyday.

    The Cliff House Bistro was great recommendation from my fiancee’s uncle and aunt. It is the Nordstrom Rack version of the Cliff House Sutro, but still had first class in food, service, and views.

Alcove Cafe & Bakery
The perfect hip social LA brunch spot with outdoor seating. Why not dine with your sunglasses on, I love it. A people watching like environment and the crowd is plentiful. We ordered the steak benedict, crab benedict, and the poached eggs over lox. All dishes were good but not the best LA has to offer. I would recommend going here for a solid brunch and the whole hanging out experience.
