Uptown, Downtown or Down Home: Madrona is an Uptown Breeder retreat. Though the neighborhood may have a quaint and cozy feel, 34th Ave is practically a Rodeo Drive of strollers that cost as much as a month's rent.
Bubbles, Bloodies or Black Coffee: All three. All fantastic. The coffee is Fontè -- full bodied, aromatic and warrants at least three cups. The brunch cocktail menu has an assortment of drinks that feature fresh squeezed juice and call liquors for around $7.
Hungover, Hooked-Up or Hanging with the Family: If your hangovers are of the variety that you enjoy a joint full of cheery, indulged children and bright-as-the-day-will-allow lighting, then this is the spot for you, freak. The Hi Spot caterers to its 'hood and is as good as classy, family breakfast dining gets. I would suggest ordering some the outstanding in-house pastries pre-meal for younger kids, because here they take their time with the food, in a good way.
This is the spot to take a hook-up whom you are really, really into. Nothing says love like showing up to a date 30 minutes early to get a table and pre-order HS's famous Cheese Baked Eggs (two eggs, baked in cream, Swiss, mozzarella and cheddar cheeses. Served w/ home fries & toast. Additional fillings available from the omelet list- $10.25). If that kind of consideration goes sexually unreciprocated, you have chosen the wrong partner.
What's Cooking: Internationally inspired faves from the Breakfast Burrito (Three eggs scrambled w/black beans and cheddar cheese, wrapped in a flour tortilla, and topped with fresh salsa and sour cream served w/ home fries - $10.25) to Bengal Benedict ( Poached eggs and ham on English muffin with curry sauce, served with home fries - 10.25) give you a dizzying array of options. Again, I have to suggest indulging in one of their fine in-house baked goods. Once you've sampled their moist and delicate take on a scone, you will forever look in horror at those horrid, dry lumps in other breakfast cases.
