Louisa's is a neighborhood restaurant popular for breakfast & lunch. They make their own bread and have a gluten-free bread that my aunt said it is the best she's ever had! Our waiter was fun to interact with. A very nice, relaxed atmosphere.

There must be some reason this place is super popular. As newcomers to the area we were excited to eat breakfast there. I really had my hopes up about the food, but I remain in disbelief about my experience. I'm not super picky about how eggs "over medium" are cooked and I've ordered eggs that way for years. There can... More

We were having trouble finding a place to eat and ran across Louisa's. The waiter was very friendly. He even gave us tips of places to see away from Seattle. The food was very good. Had a pleasant experience.

Stepped in for brunch on Saturday. It was busy but relaxed at the same time. Service was attentive and friendly. Pastries looked great, as did the Mon-Friday dinner menu. Lots of choice for all palates. We ordered from the brunch menu. I ordered the smoked salmon hash with a biscuit on the side. Flavors were outstanding, biscuit was perfect. So... More

We stumbled into Louisa's because the place next door was too busy, loud, and not relaxing, and glad it turned out this way. Louisa's was warm and friendly, relaxed vibe, and fun decor. Waitress was friendly and helpful, conscientious about our food allergy questions. Clam chowder was reported excellent by two in our group, with one reporting it being even... More

Every time in Seattle we stop for breakfast or lunch. The food is great and the pastries better. Everything including the bread is made on site. I have been known to eat a complete breakfast and finish with the cherry crumble. Friendly staff and great neighborhood.

Wandered in here for brunch on a Sunday morning, and was not disappointed. They advertise their biscuits and sausage gravy, but their mushroom gravy was just as good! As someone who does not eat pork, this is a restaurant that made me fell like I could order anything off the menu, normally not easy to do at a breakfast joint.... More

Horrendously overpriced. If you want good quality brunch for a reasonable price, you'd be much better served going to 14 Carrot Café just up the street or better yet Portage Bay. Also, I'd strongly advise against using a card here. I got double charged for brunch and am still waiting to have the issue even acknowledged by the owner/manager after... More

Had breakfast here with gal pals recently... we decided to split a few of the awesome looking breakfast bars. Unfortunately, they weren't nearly as awesome as hoped. In fact, quite underwhelming. The rest of our party got eggs, and regular breakfast fare... ok, but nothing great. There are plenty of options in the area, explore them first.

I enjoyed brunching here. The mimosa's were especially large and well worth the $8 they cost. They have great gluten free toast that can be substituted for bread in any menu item. My boyfriend went with the sausage and biscuits and he raved that it was indeed as fluffy and delicious as advertised. Service was a little slow on this... More
