Don't let the reviews filled with awe at all the knick-knacks on every surface dissuade you from visiting. This is a fine little breakfast spot-visited on a Sunday morning at 9:30 and got a table without waiting. By 10:00 it was full with a few people waiting. We had 1) Eggs Benedict-very good 2) Country Benedict-gravy was good but not... More

Formica tables, kewpie dolls in a keepsake cabinet, family pix on the wall. Yummy omelettes with fresh veggie ingredients, generous portions, and very friendly staff. Always a coffee pot coming around.

Small sorta greasy spoon, but tasty typical breakfast menu with fresh brewed coffee. Family owned. Conveniently located on Lake City Way in north Seattle. Quite reasonable prices.

I felt like I was on an episode of Hoarders, only restaurant style. There was stuff just covering all the walls, shelves, cabinets, etc. Only not in the cute, vintagy yet stylish way, but in more of the need to declutter and clean sort of way. The waitress was not too warm or friendly, and made my husband and I... More

A relative suggested we meet for breakfast at The Breakfast Club, for its charm and straight up breakfast fare. It is located along Lake City Way, along a strip of businesses that have seen better days. Some might be put off by that, but they'll miss some great places as a result because that's what a mom & pop place... More

This place is one of the business fronting Lake City. Many look like dives from the outside. This is no exception. The door has been patched, and I will speculate someone with a thug-shaped foot didn't treat it with TLC. Inside, it looks like a diner, the kind one might find in a charming little town. It has a sideboard... More

If you can get past the rather quirky cluttered interior (great for I spy with my little eye if kiddos in tow) this mom and pop breakfast spot is spot on. Really friendly homey service, tasty biscuits and gravy, big yummy omelets are all on the menu. If you are a Jersey person the food is like a good old... More

Where to start...Walking in it looks like a Hoarders and St. Vincent De Paul explosion. No rhyme or reason to the decor, just awful. The second thing you notice is the filth, wow..I can still see the mess in my head. The area in front of the kitchen where the food is prepared was a less than slim waitress enjoying... More

There's only a few places I would recommend if you're looking for breakfast in Seattle. This place is at the top of the list. If you wern't looking for it, you would pass by it on the street and not even know it. But do yourself and your stomach a favor and go here. It's a small, retro joint with... More

Restaurant impossible? More like restaurant retro cool. Yes, it looks like it needs a little makeover/updating g of a few things but the charm of this totally retro kitschy place is what draws people here and the food is great! I'm not a "regular" but the staff sure treat me like I'm in there every day! I feel like they're... More
