If you come in here, you can trade money for food and eat it. Sometimes, that's what you want to do. The place has a "been here forever" vibe to it, which is cool. The breakfast was good, not excellent, but good. Good is good though. The biscuits were excellent however. What really caught my eye was how clean all... More

The atmosphere of this cafe is very chill! It was my first time here and was recommended by the hotel manager where I was staying at. The service was excellent!! I love cafe's and this place is definitely on my list to eat when I visit Seattle. I Love chilli cheese fries, but I never seem to find good ones... More

If you are looking for an amazing culinary experience, this is not the place to go. The food seemed pretty typical of a diner (although I had a great, cheap drink). HOWEVER, the staff is super friendly, and the decor is fun--kind of intentionally divey. It is near Seattle Center, and the prices are affordable.

This was the 2nd time staying in the Seattle Center area, but our first time at the Mecca. The breakfast menu is extensive and eclectic. You will find everything you like on it. Or if you just want large quantities of eggs and potatoes that can also be arranged. The diner is attractive black. It was recommended by our hotel... More

Solid food, large portions, a bit bland; you'll need to wield the salt and pepper shakers. The omelette with salmon was good. The corned beef hash was average. If you don't want butter on your toast, make sure you tell the staff.

We enjoyed 2 family breakfasts here, not greasy, tasted homemade and reasonably priced. Cute, quirky little place highly recommended!

I love a place that's a little rough around the edges. This place is a lovely dive bar. All are welcome. No judgement if you order nachos or mash potatoes and gravy for breakfast.

I ate here for breakfast 2 mornings during my short stay in Seattle. They made exactly what I wanted and did it quickly. Prices were reasonable (same as most breakfast restaurants). Service was better the second day than the first but even the fist day was ok. They did open a little late on Tuesday 11/8 (3 of us waiting)... More
