Caffè Lieto

Breakfast in Downtown, Pike Place & Waterfront

This tiny Pike Place Market storefront houses two casual dining juggernauts: Cafe Lieto and Biscuit Bitch. The former specializes in strong coffee, while the latter does giant, flaky biscuits totally smothered in toppings. Go with a classic biscuits and gravy, or the 'hot mess bitch' with eggs, grits, cheese and jalapeños.

Expect long lines and very friendly customer service. There are several other independently run Biscuit Bitch locations, including a larger shop in Pioneer Square.
