Anyone looking for outstanding breakfast in Seattle’s Capitol Hill should find a seat at Glo’s. That is not necessarily an easy task, for Glo’s is a small place with room for scarcely a couple dozen customers and its reputation as a breakfast hot spot insures a crowd. While meals are served at brisk diner pace, everything is made to order; waiting for a table is part of the experience.

Eggs Benedict is Glo’s go-to dish. Masterful hollandaise, which is smooth and buttery with a bright citrus twist, makes each of the menu’s five variations something special. Choices include Benedict with smoked salmon (aka Eggs Royale), with spinach and bacon (Eggs Blackstone), and a sunny one named Eggs Californian, which is made with abundant avocado and slices of grilled tomato.

Vegetarian options abound, including biscuits with mushroom gravy, grilled vegetable frittata, and an “Aaron’s Special” of sautéed vegetables atop hash browns, available with cheddar or jack cheese or vegan-friendly cheeseless. A very good Belgian waffle attains excellence under a rainbow of summer-fresh blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, and slices of banana plus a garnish of pink grapefruit.

While this high-spirited place feels like a no-frills coffee house, the look of meals that come from the kitchen betrays a fine aesthetic. Each plate is a thing of beauty, albeit not in a fussy way. Food at Glo’s is colorful, balanced, inviting. And mighty tasty.

Note that Glo’s is open for breakfast and lunch during the week and from midnight to 4pm on Saturday and Sunday.
