If you find yourself craving a savory breakfast while everyone else is knee-deep in a stack of pancakes, head to El Moose. This Mexican restaurant in Ballard serves great food all day long, but their brunch is the star of the show. Floral oilcloths and papel picado brighten the space, while café de olla—an earthy spiced coffee served in clay mugs—livens up the out-late-last-night crowd.

Ordering the chilaquiles with carne asada is a foolproof decision, and the huevos divorciados with both salsa verde and ranchero sauce dividing the plate is another sure choice. But the alambres tops them all. It's a hot plate of shredded beef, spicy chorizo, and grilled poblano peppers and onions, topped with sliced cheese that melts on contact. Add a fried egg on top to appease the brunch gods, and swaddle it all inside tortillas. And while the horchata latte refills and warm energy may make you feel like the only customer in the entire city, they do get busy, so arrive early.
