Seattle Weekend Brunch

A brunch lover's guide to Seattle's greasy spoons!

Vera’s in Ballard


Vera’s Restaurant | 5417 22nd Avenue, Seattle, WA

This morning we visited one of my husband’s favorite restaurants, Vera’s. It’s a good thing I like their food, because my husband would eat here every weekend if he could. It’s a small diner located in the heart of old town Ballard. Tucked in between the major three streets–Leary, Market, and Ballard Avenue–it’s easy to miss, but once you’ve spotted their neon orange signs you won’t be able to miss it again.

One of the reasons we end up here time and time again is the fact we have never have to wait for a table. Don’t get me wrong, it’s usually very busy. Somehow though, they always seem to have a table open for us. The service is very fast and the waitstaff are friendly. And the food, even though it’s a little on the greasy side, is consistently good. We know it’s good because famed Seattle restaurateur, Tom Douglas, is even a regular.

Now usually my husband sticks to either their chicken fried steak or biscuits and gravy. This morning was no exception, he went with chicken fried steak (pictured). I opted for the waffle, eggs, and sausage combo. When all was said and done–we were in and out, in under 45 minutes for about $25 (not including tip).

  1. Excellent brunch blog. I’m curious to hear your opinion of the new restaurant on 15th in Capitol Hill – “The Wandering Goose.”

  2. It’s been ages since I’ve eaten at Vera’s. I think I may have to pay a brunch visit soon!
