Brunch in Belltown: Del Rey

Belltown, your brunchtime options are expanding: this weekend Del Rey started serving brunch. I don’t know how it will compare to Rite Aid during the afternoon as a pick-up spot, but I do know that the Kahlua french toast was really, really good. The batter was not too sweet, the portion not too huge, and the jam on the side possibly lifesaving jam.

My companions all went for more savory dishes (I can’t tell you what they were because the menu isn’t up yet, although there was definitely a giant breakfast burrito and some ham cups), and there was a significant amount of passing plates around and enthusiastic mumbling. The chorizo is excellent, and stuck on a skewer with an olive to garnish the Bloody Mary. If you really need to wake up, the Angry Maria is a Bloody Mary using habanero-infused tequila. Personally, I will stick to mimosas.

Brunch is the most important meal (or two) of the week, so another option in Belltown is definitely a thing to be happy about. As a bonus, you can follow Del Rey on Twitter, and sometimes they will give you things. Del Rey is also the only place in town I know of so far with a mayor special if you use foursquare–happy hour prices all day for the mayor and one guest. Everyone else gets $2 off their first well drink Sunday – Thursday.

    Yes. Ham cups. They were cups made of ham, and filled with…I don’t know, eggs probably. I meant to pay attention, but by the time they came I was too busy proposing marriage to my jam.
