With its blond wood, bright colors and concrete walls, the Northwest industrial outpost of the Daily Cafe hits the spot when you're in a contemporary, arty mood. The menu, too, is up-to-the minute, with its emphasis on seasonality and freshness. Best of all, the Daily's innovative food and mod atmosphere can be had for relatively modest prices. Brunch is a prix fixe affair that may sound expensive at first, but for $12.95 lucky diners get a choice of appetizers (like rich baked French toast or a small bowl of the highly touted granola) plus an entree (cornmeal-crusted trout or a very special BLT with an egg make for hearty starts to an active Sunday) and a basket of house-baked pastries that will send you into sheer ecstasy. But the Daily isn't just for brunch. It's a destination lunch spot for glamorous-but-hungry Pearlites: a nice spot for an intimate dinner and, with its organic eggs and breakfast paninis, the perfect eye-opening breakfast joint. (MW)
