Best Brunch Spots to Take Your Mom in Every State

The restaurant that calls itself Lunch.Supper! is actually two places, side-by-side, each specializing in a different meal. Early this year, the proprietors opened this third establishment, about a mile from the first two. The menu seems to go on forever, encompassing a breakfast charcuterie plate, assorted salads, four different Benedicts (one with a smoked salmon cake, another with pepper-crusted pork loin), omelettes, pancakes and waffles, brunch bowls, sandwiches, and full-scale meals like chicken and waffles and steak and eggs.

Specializing in “coastal seafood in Seattle,” Shaker and Spear adds unusual brunch fare (salt cod beignets, smoked trout rillettes, steamed clams with fennel sausage) to more expected choices like blueberry lemon ricotta pancakes, mushroom and herb omelette, and Dungeness crab cake Benedict.
