"All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast"
This John Gunther quote lives in the heart of (hungover) brunch-goers across Seattle. That's why Saint John's Eatery said, "We're opening our doors, nothing crazy," when asked about what they're doing for this year's lovers' day. Their usual menu should suffice, if hot biscuits and gravy are all your heart desires.

Anti-Valentine's singles and lazy daters, rejoice. It's time for us to support our favorite LGBTQ-owned business by celebrating business as usual. I've made the calls for you, and it seems many other eateries are operating normally this weekend.

Unless you feel as intrigued by "chocolate tower for two" on Cafe Flora's V-Day menu as I do. They may never serve it again. So don't be afraid to get out there! Good food will always love you back.
