A nearby search on trip advisor pulled up this place for breakfast. As we approached, the area was a little run down. The restaurant itself looked a little like a converted Waffle House. I'll admit, we almost left. Wow, so glad I have learned to...More

On a long connection at the airport, met a friend and found the old-school joint. Wasn't sure from the outside, but once inside I was happily consuming piles of food! Had a bit omelet that was quite good, with fresh vegetables inside. They did it...More

The location is near the car rental by the airport. The food is very good and the service very personal. The need to change the coffee brand they use or put more coffee in the pod.

Great place to have breakfast. Home made pancakes served by great servers. They take extra care to check with you if you need a refill or something else. Enjoyed our breakfast on our trip to Seattle.

Eat here after staying at a SeaTac hotel following a late flight. It has been in business 57 years according to the menu, and the decor hasn't changed since it opened it appears! You are walking back into the 1950s. Open for breakfast and lunch...More

Perfectly located to the airport for a no frills diner. Pancakes were good. Fresh Oj was good. Hasbrowns and Hash were delish.
