Breakfast in Seattle – Third Stop, Tilikum Place Cafe

Simple post really. I have wanted to eat at this Seattle restaurant since it opened. Always appearing in “best of Seattle” magazines and so on, Tilikum Place Cafe is in that weird intersection off of the Monorail line and Denny. I think there is a statue of Chief Sealth in the triangle…but not totally sure.

But that isn’t the point! The point is food and great food in Seattle, and I am adding Tilikum Place Cafe as one of the Top 3 Breakfast spots and coffee roasters in the Emerald City. Missed the last two posts? Portage Bay and Toulouse Petit, well catch up will you?!

I finally made it and you know what? All of the hype is warranted. This is easily in the Top 3, not sure if it is possible to crack this short list and trust me, there are some GREAT breakfast spots in Seattle.

 Cast Iron Baked Eggs and Leeks

A quaint place, not a lot of tables, nice decor, yet hard-to-find, this now 3-year Seattle establishment is a great place to get organic/all-natural and mostly seasonal breakfast. I had the baked eggs, over leeks, some nice local herbs, and a side of housemade sausage.  It was excellent.

  • Ten Mile / I was delighted to start the weenekd with this bit of news:Despite its backing by the billionaire Warren Stephens family, Las Vegas copyright lawsuit filer Righthaven LLC warned today it may have to file for bankruptcy because of a series of setbacks in its litigation campaign.Personally, I think the CEO of Righthaven, and his Stephens Media masters need to be personally ruined for doing what they did. But nonetheless, I find this highly satisfying.Is this the case you were interested in?
