SEATTLE FAVORITES: TALLULAH'S

IMG_6845.JPG

Last weekend we brunched at a new-to-us place and fell in love from the minute we stepped onto this beautifully tiled floor.

Tallulah's is owned by the Derschang Restaurant Group (it runs with the hip and trendy Oddfellows Cafe, also on Capitol Hill, and the laid back Kings in Ballard). They serve brunch through happy hour, and we decided to try the weekend brunch. Totally pleased with our choice and once I'm not pregnant I can't wait to try all their drinks on happy hour.

The decor is stunning. Texture perfection, upscale but not pretentious, mid-century modern, European, and so many amazing plants. I spotted a Fiddle Leaf Fig right by our table and pointed it out to Daniel like the crazy plant lady that I am.

The pregnant mimosa: just juice, hold the bubbly. Really loving fresh green juices lately. These two are: beet, carrot, apple and ginger, and kale, cucumber, celery, pear and lemon. So good.

The menu boasts classics and creative dishes, from herbed goat cheese omlettes to crab eggs benedict, and an amazing looking beet salad that I'm dying to try next. They featured baked goods from local bakery Macrina and the brunch item of the moment, avocado toast.

I got the Maple Quinoa Porridge with pear, banana, coconut, pecans, raisins and pumpkin seeds. Divine. Both vegan and gluten free, but tasted creamy and coconuty. Daniel got the Eggs Benedict with crab and loved it. The sweet potatoes it came with were amazing. Daniel had a side of banana bread with maple butter that he raved about, and I had a side of applewood bacon that was cooked to perfection. Salty and crunchy, exactly how I like it.

Such a find. I loved that Tallulah's is located in a quieter stretch of Cap Hill. I mentioned to Daniel that it felt like we were on vacation, discovering somewhere totally new to us in a different part of Cap Hill. Excellent place and highly recommended.
