Saint Helens is a laid-back French spot that’s a solid dinner option (get the burger), but also serves a particularly great brunch. On weekend mornings, you’ll find a classic lineup of yogurt and granola, frittatas, benedicts made with housemade English muffins, and French standards like onion soup and croque madames. Keep it in mind for a casual date - and bonus points if you pregame your meal with a bike ride on the Burke-Gilman trail, which runs right behind the restaurant.
