!--paging_filter--pstrongBreakfast Sammies at Dahlia Bakery/strongbrWhen a warm, easilya href="http://www.seattlemag.com/article/breakfast-sandwiches-dahlia-bakery" target="_blank" portable breakfast sandwich is needed/a, look no farther. We like the sautéed mushroom version, served on a freshly baked English muffin, with melted Gruyère and mixed herbs (emPictured above, /em$5.75). emBelltown, 2001 Fourth Ave.; 206.441.4540; a href="http://www.tomdouglas.com" target="_blank"tomdouglas.com/a/em/p
pstrongWaffles at Arosa Cafe/strongbrStop in at one of the two locations of the Arosa Cafe (First Hill and Madison Valley) for Belgian liege waffles, thick and lightly sweet ($2.75–$4; we take ours plain, but peanut butter and banana or Nutella are options). A perfect breakfast, and the mochas are great, too. emMadison Valley, 3121 E Madison St. No. 101; 206.324.4542;a href="http://www.arosacafe.com" target="_blank" arosacafe.com /a(Photo by Oanh Tran)a href="http://www.arosacafe.com" target="_blank"brimg src="/sites/default/files/newfiles/oanh-tran-at-arosa-cafe.jpg" width="400" height="266" style="vertical-align: middle; margin: 10px;"/a/em/p
pstrongBagels to Go at Pettirosso/strongbrA a href="http://www.seattlemag.com/article/cafe-pettirossos-pleasant-hideaway-cap..." target="_blank"toasted everything bagel with a thick smear/a of artichoke cream cheese, thickly cut tomatoes, fried capers and spinach ($4.50)? You can’t beat it. To make your bagel pit stop even quicker, call ahead to order. emCapitol Hill, 1101 E Pike St.; 206.324.2233; a href="http://www.pettirossoseattle.com" target="_blank"pettirossoseattle.com /a(Photo by Hamish Hill)a href="http://www.pettirossoseattle.com" target="_blank"brimg src="/sites/default/files/newfiles/pettrioso_breakfast.jpg" width="400" height="266" style="vertical-align: middle; margin: 10px;"/a/em/p
pstrongQuiche at a href="http://www.seattlemag.com/honor-artisan-bakery" target="_blank"Honoré Bakery/a/strongbrSilken slices ($4.95) disappear just as quickly as they are put out, typically by 9 a.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. on weekends. Flavors rotate with the season, but deliciousness is consistent. emBallard, 1413 NW 70th St.; 206.706.4035; a href="http://www.honorebakery.com" target="_blank"honorebakery.com /a(Photo by Natasha Reed)a href="http://www.honorebakery.com" target="_blank"brimg src="/sites/default/files/newfiles/honore_quiche.jpg" width="400" height="266" style="vertical-align: middle; margin: 10px;"/a/em/p
pstrongOnion and Gruy/strongstrongère Pastry ata href="http://www.seattlemag.com/cafe-besalu" target="_blank" Cafe Besalu/a/strongbrSome believe savory pastries are all sorts of wrong when it comes to the best use of flaky, buttery dough; others believe they combine the best of breakfast in one handheld pocket of goodness. Cafe Besalu’s onion and Gruyère pastry ($3) puts us squarely in the latter camp. emBallard, 5909 24th Ave. NW; 206.789.1463; a href="http://www.cafebesalu.com" target="_blank"cafebesalu.combrimg src="/sites/default/files/newfiles/cafe-besalu_breakfast.jpg" width="400" height="266" style="vertical-align: middle; margin: 10px;"/a/em/p
pstrongCrêpes at La Crêperie Voilà/strongbrThis sidewalk crêpe stand is situated midway between Capitol Hill and downtown, right under the glass archway. (Bonus: It keeps you dry on rainy days!) We’re partial to the chèvre, spinach, red pepper and herb butter crêpe, but all your faves—Nutella or the always great lemon-sugar classic—are here ($4.15–$7.60). em707 Pike St., Kiosk nbsp;No. 1; 206.447.2737; a href="http://www.lacreperievoila.com" target="_blank"lacreperievoila.combrimg src="/sites/default/files/newfiles/courtesy-of-la-creperie-voila.jpg" width="400" height="266" style="vertical-align: middle; margin: 10px;"/a/em/p
pstrongCrumpet Shop/strongbrFans of that beguiling combo of sweet and savory should indulge in the lemon-curd-topped ricotta crumpet ($4) at a href="http://www.seattlemag.com/article/dining/food-we-love/food-we-love-fresh..." target="_blank"this Pike Place stalwart/a, which now features mostly organic offerings. Stilton paired with orange marmalade ($3.35) is another winner that you could easily munch on while taking a break from shopping for fish, veggies and flowers at the Market. em1503 First Ave.; 206.682.1598;a href="http://www.thecrumpetshop.com" target="_blank" thecrumpetshop.com /a(Photo by Christina Ricchiuti)a href="http://www.thecrumpetshop.com" target="_blank"brimg src="/sites/default/files/newfiles/christina-ricchiuti-at-crumpet-shop-.jpg" width="400" height="266" style="vertical-align: middle; margin: 10px;"/a/em/p
