Ow. So you had a little too much fun last night. What now? Maybe you need to replenish your body with something healthy. Or, more likely, fill up on greasy carbs and a little hair of the dog to help bring things back in balance. These Seattle spots for brunch, bloody marys and more will help ease the pain.

You don't have to have an Asian mom to know that congee and noodle soups have curative morning-after powers. This International District staple does some of the best, and most dishes are well under $10. Grab some coffee to fortify yourself for the inevitable weekend wait.
The weekend hangover brunch is aptly named. Bloody marys abound and mimosas are served by the pitcher. Greasy breakfast basics such as omelets and hash browns, and even the occasional breakfast taco or chicken-fried steak, also help ease the pain.
The tequila menu can get you in trouble on Saturday night, but come Sunday morning, the brunch menu offers Mexican-inspired favorites such as chilaquiles and chorizo. True salvation, however, can be found in the list of brunch cocktails. Some are light and gentle, others more forceful with the tequila, but either way you'll leave feeling like a champ.
Craving grease but feeling a little iffy about cheap diner food? Skillet offers upgraded versions of hangover-busting plates such as eggs, waffles, burgers and a decadent grilled cheese sandwich. The prices are only a shade higher than its divey counterparts and a bargain given the quality of the food. Skillet also serves breakfast all day long, something to consider if you can't make it out of the house until well past noon.
Perhaps the only antidote to bottomless hangover stomach: Beth's signature bottomless hash browns. Think that's excessive? They come standard with a 12-egg omelet. Don't worry about showering, or even changing out of your pajama pants. This up-all-night diner has seen it all.
If you're looking to atone for last night's misdeeds (and fill your growling, angry stomach in the process) this stand at Pike Place Market has the answer. Juices packed with fruits and vegetables can replenish the body's alcohol-vanquished nutrients and make you feel a little better in the process. If that doesn't work, Juice It serves coffee too.
