Be prepared to wait, but it's worth it and it will go fast. Popular breakfast place for a reason, a hidden gem in the city - this place is a Seattle institution. The wait staff is WONDERFUL, efficient and keeps things going smooth. The menu is your basic breakfast and lunch fare but really done well. This place has been... More

This has been one of our "go to" breakfast places for the last two years. Consistently well prepared foods and great service too! The same employee's have worked there since we have been going and they are excellent, and the owner must treat them well too to keep them. A daily special list always has tasty breakfast and lunch specials,... More

We went on a Sunday morning and this popular place was packed, but we still only had to wait ten minutes. Breakfast selection was great. We had an omelet and a scramble, both of which were excellent. Best sourdough I've had. Looking at my fellow diners' choices, I wished I had room for two or three breakfasts. Service was good... More

There was a little wait but they got people in and out quickly. The chicken fried chicken with chorizo gravy was delicious. The bloody mary could have used hard alcohol other than beer but that is the only complaint..

Some friends and I came here for a brunch one Sunday morning, and let's just start with the menu. It was HARD to decide from all the delicious options. Anyroad, we all chose mostly different options and from the minute the food came out until we were all finished, not a word was spoken. We were all in heaven, enjoying... More
