SEA - breakfast potatoes

though raised in the south and a lover of grits, i maintain that an excellent breakfast is defined by its potatoes. hashed browns are for weenies and, in any case, are generally served frozen from a box. i greatly favor those home-fries served at the sunrise cafe (64th/roosevelt)(on weekends only) and at the sunflour bakery (31 ave/65 st ne)(every day) and would be most happy if fellow chowhounds would inform me of their favorite places for morning spuds. when the olympic hotel was still a four seasons property, i casually mentioned the waiter my belief that good potatoes equals good breakfast and he proceeded to bring me a plate of wonderful grilled potatoes redolent with garlic and chives which he said was offered only in the employee dining room since the chef thought them too bold for the general public - hard to believe but worthy of a healthy tip.
