Here's a diner that doesn't pretend to be anything else. It's a little over the hill, but in a funky, cool sort of way. You can go half a mile towards downtown and pay twice as much for the same cuisine if you want, but...More

This is 50-60ties style diner. I always enjoy the food here. Scramble egg and french toast are the best. They are very simple but taste great. The price is also good, less than 10 dollars in downtown Seattle!

You can get everything (incl lunch) on their menu for breakfast. Prices and service are good, sad that we had to ask for more coffee though. Cute place. I'd go back.

Our Sunday morning trip to Sea-Tac was brightened considerably by our delicious brunch at Planet Java. Fresh, delicious crisp breakfast fare was served with a courteous smile, and the decor conjures yesterday's playtimes.

Close to the International District and Pioneer Square lies this little gem of a diner. My boyfriend, craving pancakes, insisted we find a good place for breakfast, and so we found Planet Java. The waitresses were friendly, in your typical diner fashion, and the restaurant...More
