Breakfast is often heralded as the most important meal of the day. In the Columbia City neighborhood of Seattle sits Geraldine’s Counter. When I moved here, I did a Google search for the ‘best breakfast joints in Seattle’, and this was the first one to come up. It’s a trendy little place with vibrant colors, delicious food, and wonderful staff. If you don’t get there right when they open (8am), you may have to wait a while for an open booth or a spot at the counter.
Helpings are generous and the food is great. I usually go for the Counter Special, which is a huge helping of two eggs cooked however you like, hash browns, and toast. Their pancakes and French toast are also phenomenal. Oh, and for something really hearty, don’t miss their biscuits and gravy.
If you find yourself in Seattle for any length of time, make your way to Geraldine’s. You won’t regret it.
