We had been awake since 2 a.m. Arrived in Seattle at 10 a.m. We needed breakfast and lots of coffee. Delicious meals, and endless coffee. Free coffee if you're over 55! We are, so an extra perk!! Great place, will stop in again.

Pretty non-descript place frequented mainly by locals so you know its gotta be good. Nothing fancy, but the breakfast is good and they serve it all day. Wife had the corned beef hash and loved it. Potato pancakes for me... perfect! This looks like it...More
