    I need to know everything I can about getting good breakfast in the junction (Alaska) area. It’s a no-brainer to find coffee and billion-grain bird breakfasts everywhere you turn, but I need real, plate full of (greasy) food breakfast. Help me out!

    Two Words: Easy Street. Real food on a plate.

    Absolutely second that. They also offer their lunch food at breakfast so if you want a burger or quesadilla … no problem.

    Had some less than spectacular experiences at Easy Street. Its too bad because I love the idea of that place. However, when you are served the wrong breakfast and the waitress walks across the room and swaps it with a plate she set down in front of another customer (they had already cut into the omlet) it kind of makes it tough to go back…

    Easy Street has good food and variety if you don’t mind waiting. You wait 20-30 minutes for a table, you wait 20-30 minutes for your food. The multiple times I’ve been there it’s been a 90-minute breakfast. Sometimes I don’t mind, other times I just want food and get on with my day.

    Be’s is the least expensive option. Very basic, but sometimes that all you want.

    I like Luna Park’s breakfasts a lot and there’s usually enough food to take home for later.

    And there’s the Eagles Aerie 9:30-11:00am on Sundays for $6. I’ve had breakfast there twice and it’s been substantial and good. It’s an interesting atmosphere and the members – they do the cooking and serving – are really friendly.

    Yeah, I like my Sunday breakfasts out!

    If you want to eat breakfast at Easy Street be sure to not peek into the kitchen afterwards. It looks so greasy and filthy I nearly lost it. Can’t find it in me to go again, sorry.

    When the Charlestown Cafe reopens, that’s a good place for a “diner” breakfast, too – not exactly in the Junction, but if it’s a nice day, it would be a nice walk!

    I second LUNA PARK. Not quite the junction but worth the few extra blocks to get there! :)

    Amen to Luna Park, just grab the first parking spot you can on Avalon and walk down, because there is rarely parking in their tiny little lot. The food and atmosphere is well worth the walk! The Chelan Cafe has a STELLAR breakfast as well. Mmmm for the Eggs Benedict. (the coffee is not so great, but you can always duck into the bar and jazz it up with a shot of Baileys…)

    Easy Street is a great place for baby boomers to go to eat and feel like they are still “cool”.

    I would avoid it on the weekends but it’s great on the weekdays.

    However, I shouldn’t let out the secret but …Angelina’s Trattoria ….is the most awesome breakfast..the people are way cool and I have never had to wait for a seat. They only serve breakfast on the weekends though. Fancy and greasy. excellent.

    flipjack – I’m really glad you said that. We go to Angelina’s A LOT for dinner and I was aware that they served breakfast, but never tried. Always wondered though. Looks like we are gonna have to try!

    JanS…Yumm the Cajun benedict is my fav too, although last time I was there I tried the Joe’s scramble – that was pretty awsome too – love the garlic. :) I’ve only been once but Blackbird does a nice breakfast also.

    I have wanted to try Circa for awhile but I am to impatient for the line. I do enjoy Blackbird’s breakfast too and the bloody mary there is great too .:)

    Ouch, Flipjack, we resemble that remark.

    Salesguy and I go to Easy Street for the occasional weekday breakfast while Junior Member of Team is in school and we sit there looking at each other, listening to the music and noting all the band posters, thinking “They let US in here?!”

    Oh, and since you all have digressed off the Junction location – let us add, Alki Cafe. Challah French toast and grilled Italian sausage.

    Alki Cafe. Green eggs and ham. The best.

    But what if I don’t like green eggs and ham?

    There are numerous other great items there too! The only disappointment @ the Alki Cafe is occassionally the wait…

    Sue, would you eat them at the junction? Would you eat them at a function?

    As for the serious post :-) I go to Easy Street by default and am usually disappointed by the service. Alki Cafe is wonderful! My wife, Sue and I go there every other Saturday. Luna Park is great too. I’m looking forward to Charlestown re-opening as well – that’s frankly a pleasant surprise that they will!

    I have to vote for the Chelan cafe. They are tucked up under the West Seattle Bridge and they have excellent breakfast. I can get an omelet with toast and hash browns with a beverage for 10.00
