Cyclops Restaurant Review

: You can't miss Cyclops with its giant, blinking blue neon eye, and you won't want to miss its all-day breakfast and late-night people-watching. The funky spot on a busy Belltown corner comes with vintage red vinyl seating and a somewhat campy interior, and serves up good food at reasonable prices. Appetizer-grazing is easy with starters such as a roasted chicken quesadilla, the generous hummus plate or polenta arrabbiata. Daily entrées can range from a bourbon molasses-soaked pulled pork sandwich on a toasted brioche bun to a grilled chicken baguette with Fontina, cilantro pesto and ancho-lime aïoli. Be sure to check the daily fresh sheet for classics such as cornmeal-crusted chicken, spicy chipotle-glazed pork chops, and the daily fish special. A full bar makes all libations possible. Craving weekend brunch? Head here for omelets and home fries.
