You don't have to wait until lunchtime to bite into the swoon-worthy fresh corn tortillas from Maíz.

  • The small tortilleria at Pike Place Market now serves breakfast from 8-11am.

Details: The breakfast menu revolves largely around chilaquiles and egg tacos, but you can also order a beautiful cup of fruit spiced with Tajín and chamoy.

Bonus: You then can happily dig into your chilaquiles at the counter by the window, while you watch tourists wait in the never-ending line for the "original" Starbucks next door.

  • Trust me, this breakfast spot is far superior.

Details: 1914 Pike Place. Open Tuesday through Sunday.
