Not too far from Pike Place Market in Seattle is Tilikum Place Cafe with the unusual breakfast offerings of Chef Ba Culbert.

I sampled one of the blackboard specials — a Dungeness Crabcake (with very little fillers) atop sliced IMG_6902avocado on an English muffin, served with crispy well-seasoned roasted potatoes some fruit and an unusually delicious cilantro, lemongrass hollandaise sauce ($15). That’s for sure a best bite. BOTB_crown2

One friend tried the sweet mustardy baked beans on grilled toast with a fried egg and cheddar ($12), another warm bread with both Nutella and homemade jam ($2); thick creamy Greek yogurt topped with walnuts and dried fruit compote ($6). We all shared crispy bacon ($4), some skippable homemade sausage ($4) needing a bit more seasoning and grilled asparagus with lemon and shaved pecorino ($6), which could have been cooked a tad more!

Be sure to call ahead and make a reservation for a weekend brunch.
