Bellevue Scoop: Sunnyside Up in Bellevue
By Trisha Nerney, contributing writer to January 2009
Where to find that breakfast and brunch classic, Eggs Benedict, when you want to do it up right for brunch in Bellevue.
Best eggs Benedict in Bellevue  When I was a kid growing up in Bellevue, we went to the Village Inn (now the home of International Jewelers), or Tommy's Den (it was a drive-in like Burgermaster or you could be seated the home of Maggiano's). Back in the day, there were some very small Mom and Pop places to get Eggs Benedict on the weekends...more specifically, Sunday morning. After church services. These were smack dab in the "million mile" of Bellevue Way, that has now given way to mega stores like Crate & Barrel and Maggianos' Little Italy...but, back to the food, here's where you can still find that sunnyside up, so evil, yet so life affirming dish with that lemony, zesty zing.

Brief Encounter Cafe
On North Bellevue Way, tucked in the Northtowne Center, there is the Brief Encounter Café. This Mom and Pop, neighborhood-style café and diner serves a delicious breakfast and lunch menu. Eggs Benedict is served up classic style.
The Brief Encounter is family-owned and family pride shows in their service and food preparation. Small and busy so get there early. Lots of regulars. Bring a paper, spread out and enjoy a strong cup of java too.

2632 Bellevue Way NE; 425-822-8830
Daily 7am-2pm

Chace's Pancake Corral
If you like Eggs Benedict "mom style", then there's Chace's Pancake Corral located on South Bellevue Way. Chace's is a no nonsense restaurant that has been serving it up since 1958. They must be doing something right. Great Boyd's coffee. Love this place...5 stars in my book.

1606 Bellevue Way SE; 425-454-8888
Mon-Fri 5:45am-2:30pm, Sat 6am-3pm, Sun 6:30am-3pm

Basil's Kitchen
Basil's Eggs Benedict serves on Tuscan style peasant bread with two poached eggs with your choice of salmon lox, prosciutto or spinach and topped with pesto cream sauce. Basil's is in the atrium of the Hilton Bellevue Hotel.

300 112th Avenue SE; 425-452-4848

Lil' Jon Restaurant & Lounge
Another family-friendly place in Bellevue Eastgate area that has been serving up Eggs Benedict since 1967. Lil Jon's serves no nonsense breakfast, lunch and dinner. It has a bar too and serves cocktails all day. If you are into pull tabs, this is your spot.

3080 148th Ave SE; 425-746-4653
Mon-Fri 5am-10pm, Sat 6am-10pm, Sun 6am-9pm

0/8 Seafood Grill & Bar
Located at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue, 0/8 Seafood Grill serves up Eggs Benedict with a twist. They offer a vegetarian version with spinach. Plus, they offer the real deal too. It's a bit updated from the 50's version but just as enticing.

900 Bellevue Way NE; 425-637-0808
Daily 6:30am-1am
