With each pop of a champagne cork, the entire staff yells “opa!” and you know it’s on. Skillets are delicious, but don’t overlook the pancakes and Cinnamon swirl French toast. For serious appetites, the biscuits and gravy are the real deal.

Copper Hog
Whether you’re hankering for the traditional eggs benedict or you want to branch out and try Kahlua Pork Hash, the Hog aims to please. The sides menu is robust enough to assemble your own plate if you choose.

Marlin’s Café
Marlin’s Café in Nelson’s Market is a mainstay of the York Neighborhood. Stop in and say hi to Jon and Anne and grab a sunny booth. Excellent food, great service and cocktails at reasonable prices. Always try the special. It will always reward.

Seeds Bistro
With simple elegance, Seeds Bistro serves up fresh, whole foods which are locally sourced and completely delicious. The smoked pork and poached egg hash and crab cake benedict are standouts. Seeds also has a first-rate kids’ menu, for those who are too young for mimosas at brunch.

Mount Bakery
Bellingham is a very brunchy sort of town, and Mount Bakery is a very brunchy sort of place, so it all fits. Amazing crepes and omelets, incredible Belgian waffles (chocolate drizzle for breakfast, anyone?) and fine pastries make this charming spot downtown a favorite.
