Best Brunch Spots in Bellingham & Whatcom County

Sleep too late for breakfast but craving buttery hot cakes? Luckily, there's a one-word solution: brunch! You can find everyone's favorite meal at many restaurants around Bellingham. Satisfy your sweet tooth with French toast or pancakes, or go savory with bacon, eggs, or biscuits and gravy. No brunch experience is complete without a mimosa...and because juice is packed with vitamins, it's a healthy start to your day. We promise. 

Brunch served Sundays 10am - 2pm. 

Start your Sunday with brunch at Anthony's in Bellingham. Enjoy waterfront views as you sample a taste of the sea's bounty with dishes like Smoked Salmon Scramble or the New Orleans Bowl featuring ocean pawns. You can also fill up on sweeter dishes like crepes or, *drum roll*, creme brulee French toast. 

Make your brunch extra happy with a drink from the Brunch Happy Hour menu, featuring mimosas, Bloody Mary's, French 75, and more. 

Breakfast and lunch served all day. Hours vary by location. 

For fresh breakfast/lunch blends any day of the week, head to one of Avenue Bread's four locations across Whatcom County.

The lunch side of the menu has sandwiches, salads, soups, and bowls. 

Brunch served Sundays 10am - 3pm. 

Gather up the family and head to Bellingham Cider Company for Sunday brunch! The menu features a veggie hash, eggs benedict, braised beef hash, and breakfast sandwich. You can also order a salad or other lunch items, such as their burger or buttermilk brined chicken & brown sugar waffle.

Wear your loose jeans because The Birch Door Cafe does not mess around with brunch. Their portions are large and their flavors are even larger. Enjoy a range of breakfast classics like omelets, French toasts, scrambles, and biscuits and gravy. Or try something special with The Birch Door's famous French baked omelets, which are finished in the oven to have a crispier outside and tender, creamy inside. You can also find dishes like Eggs Nicole, Eggs Kory, and Fresh Fruit Blintzes.

Wash it all down with an Irish Coffee, a Bloody Mary, or one of The Birch Door's mimosas in unique flavors like pomegranate, honey lavender, or peach.

Breakfast served 8am - noon Thursdays through Mondays. 

Camber may be famous for its award-winning coffee (taste for yourself to see why) but they also offer delicious, seasonally inspired food. Their menu features carefully crafted breakfast sandwiches, tartines, and some lighter options. 

In addition to coffee and tea drinks, they also serve mimosas. 

Brunch served daily until 1pm.

Get your brunch on in the heart of Fairhaven at Colophon Cafe, located next to Village Books. Their brunch menu offers up a number of brunch-able options, including shakshuka, quiche, breakfast sandwiches, smoked salmon bagel, and, on the sweeter side, an orange and vanilla French toast bake topped with cinnamon honey butter, blueberry compote and whipped cream. Enough said.

Diamond Jim's is for the early birds, the late sleepers, and the people who crave an omelet at 1pm. You can start your brunch any time of morning at this classic diner near Bellingham's Columbia neighborhood. 

From house-made Chicken Fried Steak to Corned Beef Hash to Biscuits & Gravy and French Toast, Diamond Jim's has everything you're craving--plus mimosas and a North Fork Michelada to help it all go down. (What's a Michelada you ask? It's beer, Clamato juice or V8 juice, fresh lime, hot sauce, Worcestershire, all served over ice and with a chili-lime seasoned rim -- adding bacon is optional.)

Brunch served Sundays 7am - 3:30pm.

Attached to the The Chrysalis Inn & Spa Bellingham, Curio Collection by Hilton, Keenan's is a great destination for brunch in Bellingham, especially if you're wanting something classy with a view of the water. 

Enjoy traditional breakfast dishes like eggs Benedict, pancakes, oatmeal (sweetened with candied nuts and dried fruit), or Keenan's continental breakfast. Having a later start? Order seafood chowder or smoked wild caught salmon from the menu's lunch side. Whatever your choice, sit back with a mimosa, a Bloody Mary, or keep it caffeinated with a latte, mocha, or cappuccino. 

Breakfast served all day. 

A Downtown Bellingham staple, Old Town Cafe is a brunch-time charmer. The menu has every breakfast item you could possibly crave (omelettes, scrambles, oatmeal, hot cakes, skillets, burritos, biscuits & gravy, and more...) all in a cheerful, rustic atmosphere.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
