Good diner food and a GREAT cup of coffee. Opted for the sausage gravy biscuits with the eggs and hash browns. Eggs cooked perfectly and the hash browns fresh and crispy. Sausage gravy biscuits tasty though the gravy was not hot. GREAT ambiance with unique clocks and traditional diner decor. Friendly staff.

We discovered Planet Java several years go when we went to Seattle. Now we go there several times each visit. It's a welcome change to a free hotel breakfast.

While visiting Seattle on our way to Vancouver and Alaska we were advised to try Planet Java for breakfast. It is a retro diner on a side street in downtown.

We had breakfast here, which was excellent. The decor is kitschy - very cute. The service was a little unfriendly, but we enjoyed ourselves nontheless.

Very good and cheap breakfast choices in a typical diner setting. Can't go wrong here! We ate here with our family of 4 and everyone of us really enjoyed our breakfast.

Can't miss breakfast diner near Pioneer Square. Mushroom/Swiss omelet, French toast, hash browns, and sausages all hit their marks. Fun for families wanting a simple meal in a quiet joint. Near the football stadium.
