Brunch at Skillet Diner

I love brunch. It's such a trope for girls to gather in gaggles on the weekend for a meal, but there is something I love about it. 

Perhaps it's that I love drinking in the morning (whereas at night it just leaves me with an upset stomach). 

Or perhaps it's that I love brunch drinks such as mimosas and Bloody Marys. 

Speaking of bloody marys, there used to be a time where I could not stand tomato juice. But now I really crave that savory beverage. Skillet Diner is a restaurant known for their Bloody Mary. This was savory with a nice spicy kick to it! Their Bloody Mary has been on many of Seattle's Top 10 Bloody Mary lists! 

The other item I ordered was also a menu staple -- the Serious Toast. This was a moist and fluffy piece of toast about 4 inches high topped with jam, ham, and an egg. It sounds like a strange combination, but trust me when I say it works! It was sweet (but not too sweet) and savory. The sunny side up egg was cooked just the right way to soak into the bread. It is one of the more unique breakfast foods I have had and so delicious.

While this post is about Brunch, it's probably worthwhile to mention that Brunch isn't the only thing they do. They have a great kale salad and chicken sandwich. Skillet has several locations and it's a worthwhile stopover if you're ever in Downtown Seattle, or Capital Hill or Ballard.
