We love to go here after morning walks for excellent coffee (with free refills) and the pastries. On occasion we splurge for the scrumptious breakfasts served in several different rooms or on the open-air patio. If you are in the Madrona neighborhood, this would be...More

I've been here so many times over the years, but just returned after a hiatus of not being in Seattle. The food is as good as ever. With global warming and hot days in the summer, I would suggest that they splurge on A/C. We...More

My family and I used to stop by the Hi Spot whenever we were in the area for some amazing scones. They would sell out so quickly - sometimes we had to order in advance. We recently took our friends from out of town for...More

...has been among my partner's breakfast orders here forever. I had a breakfast burrito. And a bloody maria. And was happy to be slow in starting our trip instead of annoyed. Exceptionally queer/friendly service, for which I was grateful. Laid back. Fun. Easy.

Hi Spot is a charming neighborhood restaurant serving great breakfasts. Have not eaten anything else there, but they are always busy, have a creative and enticing menu, and provide great service. It would always be a choice for me in Seattle!

Hi Spot is located in the heart of the tree-lined Madrona neighborhood in a charming old house. The service is friendly and attentive. I had a delicious Sunday brunch that had some interesting twists that made it not your routine plate. One can dine in...More

Had a very good breakfast outside on their lovely patio. Had the egg tacos which were delicious but I thought the included fruit cup was a little incongruous with the dish. Coffee beverage was terrific, not a surprise in Seattle. Looking forward to trying the...More

I took my grandson out for lunch. He had a breakfast burrito; I, a reuben sandwich. Both included high quality ingredients, presented professionally. My reuben was served on multigrain rather than rye bread (no problem...this isn't a New York deli, so I make allowances), but...More
