When in a maritime city, go for the sea
One of the breakfast places in Seattle I’ve come to rely on is Tom Douglas’ Seatown.
It’s smack-dab in tourist central by Pike Place Market, but I’ve always found a seat at the bar on Sundays.
Most recently, I went for the house omelet, which comes with lacinato kale, local Beecher’s cheddar and red bell peppers.
I also went with the addition of adding fresh Dungeness crabmeat. At $5 an ounce, I did one. But it was worth it, bringing the ocean into my breakfast.
As an interesting find, I enjoyed the unique Chicaoji hot sauce for the first time, which is made with chipotle peppers, cacao and goji berries.

One of my favorite places to eat in Portland is The Original Dinerant. Located downtown, it’s got a jet-set mid-century modern vibe and jazzed up takes on classic Americana dishes.
While I probably could have used some poutine to soak up a night’s partying, I went for something a tad lighter: A Cobb omelette.
I’m a big fan of the classic Cobb, especially the bleu cheese element. Sans the lechuga, the fixin’s make for nice omelete filling material.
