Where to Find 25 of Seattle's Best Egg Dishes

View as Map

The delicate egg is no joke. It's a simple food, yes, but a second too long on the stove or in the oven and it's bye-bye textured, fatty goodness.

The call went out last Friday to divulge your favorite egg dishes. A landslide of answers came in, rushing towards the tip line and comments section like a broken yolk. But then again, eggs are that perfect food that elicits passion not just for its happy-making quality, but for respect in proper cooking technique. And because of that, the incredible edible egg gets its own map this week.

Here now, an alphabetical guide to 25 of Seattle's best egg dishes, as determined by readers. As a reminder, this is a user-generated map; if your favorite egg dish isn't on the list, it's probably because you didn't vote. If that's the case, feel free to leave it in the comments.

Cafe Campagne

Copy Link

This Pike Place Market standby got more votes than any other restaurant for its egg dishes, primarily the Oeufs en Meurette: Poached eggs with a sauce of pearl onions, bacon, champignons in red wine and foie gras sauce on garlic croutons.

Beth's Café

Copy Link

Not everyone thinks the 12-egg omelett at this after-hours Aurora cafe is a lesson in gluttony and gross. It garnered a few votes, probably for "the wow" factor alone.

The Eggs Benedict here are worth the drive to Kent, according to one reader.

The Greek child of Tom Douglas received a couple of votes for its Eggs Benedict and "any of their seasonal omelettes."

Cafe Parco

Copy Link

This new kid on the Madison Park block received a nod for Seattle's Most Under the Radar Brunches. Now, it's getting props for its Fried Pork Belly with cheesy scrambled eggs.

Meander's White Center

Copy Link

This White Center transplant garnered a couple of votes for The Decadence: two slabs of bourbon vanilla-battered French toast topped with ham, poached eggs & hollandaise sauce.

Café Presse

Copy Link

The oeufs plat at Presse was a popular choice among readers. Hard to resist two eggs broiled with ham and gruyere.

Spinasse

Two votes for Spinasse's Uovo con Fonduta: poached egg ‘under glass’ with fonduta and parsnip purè.

The omelettes here are wonderful, according to several readers, overshadowed only by the Crab Benedict.

Louie's Cuisine of China

Copy Link

One brave soul admits: "This is so off-the-wall I'm almost embarrassed to suggest it. Louie's Cuisine of China in Ballard is a highly retro, totally American Chinese place. But their Cantonese eggs (scrambled) with crab is really good. And available as a lunch special for $8.75 so you don't have to make a major commitment to a dinner of sweet and sour pork, subgum chowmein, etc."

Le Pichet

Copy Link

Falling behind Cafe Campagne by a single vote, Le Pichet seems to draw egg fans in with its oeufs plat. Cafe Presse is a close second. Honorable mention for their Sunday quiche described by one reader as "incredible."

Marché

Copy Link

Sitting directly above Cafe Campagne, Marche lands on the scoreboard for its Shakshuka eggs: Mediterranean-style two eggs baked in tomato, sweet pepper & onion ragout.

Original Pancake House

Copy Link

You down with OPC? One reader swears they have the best over-easy eggs in Seattle.

Tilikum Place Café

Copy Link

The baked eggs here are popular among several readers, "with leeks, spinach, bay cream, and herbed bread crumbs."

[Photo Credit]

Il Corvo

Copy Link

The pastas here are pretty famous around these parts, but eggs? As one reader divulges: "It's been awhile since it's been on the menu, but angels sing into my face whenever Il Corvo has duck egg carbonara on the menu. Yeah, I know. It's pasta, but pasta has eggs and carbonara has more eggs."

Brave Horse Tavern

Copy Link

Brave Horse gets a point for having "some good eggs with smoked salmon," otherwise known as the Brave Horse Breakfast: two eggs any style, fried potatoes, toast, and choice of bacon, sausage or smoked salmon." Sort of cheating with all those other things, but we'll take it because it sounds delicious!

Art of the Table

Copy Link

Says one reader: "When it's on the menu, get the hash with a poached egg on top at Art of The Table!!! The menu changes on the regular! And if they have the hash...GET IT!!"

[Photo Credit]

Usually, if someone is talking about Glo's, they're raving about the Eggs Benedict. Something along the lines of this reader: "Nobody beats Glo's for Chef Julie's absolutely perfect hollandaise!"

Cafe Besalu

Copy Link

Their website claims to be "the best croissant bakery on the entire American continent," but according to more than one readers, the quiche here is pretty terrific as well.

Revel has a pretty popular weekend brunch, which hasn't gone unnoticed by this reader whose current obsession is the eggs with white anchovy brandade, spicy kale, creme fraiche and dungeness crab egg foo young, zucchini, Thai basil.

Bastille Café & Bar

Copy Link

First, make reservations if you want to have brunch here. The place is pa-acked on weekends. Second, if you do come for brunch, one reader suggests the eggs in cocotte with duroc ham, kale, béchemel and aged Comté. Or the Eggs Benedict. Or the Croque Madame for brunch or dinner.

Shiro's

Copy Link

Not too many consider this place to satisfy their egg craving, but according to one reader, you'd be missing out the "Tamago nigiri, but only if made by Daisuke Nakazawa from 'Jiro Dreams of Sushi.' Daisuke made like 200 tamago nigiri that were rejected before getting Jiro's approval."

Señor Moose Cafe

Copy Link

Another hot brunch spot in Ballard. Their eggs are pretty respectable, and according to this reader, you'd be missing out if you didn't order "some rarely seen regional options like huevos motulenos from the Yucatan, huevos ahogados with poblano chile strips served with grilled bread from Mexico City or machaca con huevos from Zacatecas."

13 Coins

Copy Link

Not known for its skimpy portions, one reader suggest the veggie frittata, which is about the size of a steel drum. It's also $15. "They are not stingy."

Sitka and Spruce

Copy Link

One reader loves an old favorite on the Sitka & Spruce menu: the heirloom beans with hedgehog mushrooms, turnips and a fried egg on toast. Look for it on the brunch menu.
