We just found this restaurant although I know it has been in the area for years. We had a great late breakfast on Sunday. They did a great job of seating the crowed and getting our food hot and fresh. We didn't mind a little wait -- we expected it -- and the waitress kept our coffee mugs full. Breakfast... More

I have eaten here for years. It is an old standby in Everett. Recently it was sold to new owners. What was a good place to eat is now new and improved. It really is. They have remodeled and brightened the place up. The menu was expanded with new weekly specials new old plates. Pit Ham was added. Yum Yum.... More

When you first look at the menu you may be taken back by the high prices. However the food was delicious and the portions were huge. Their bacon was exceptional. The interior was fair; nothing fancy but If you are new to the area or passing through this place is a must go.

Traveling to Canada, we stopped by this diner in Everett. Very friendly servers greeted us at the door and sat us quickly. I had a wonderful bacon waffle (Novel idea, huh?) and my husband had delicious sausage, eggs and hash browns. Our coffee cups never got lower than 3/4 full. Even short handed the staff remained upbeat and right on... More

Not a chain but locally owned which in this case means good, plain, and delicious. A bit of the good old days. Try it. I'll bet You won't be disappointed.

Proverbial old fashioned family restaurant. Everything was good, the meatloaf especially so. I can also recommend "Rib Friday", very meaty port ribs with a very good BBQ sauce (though some would say the ribs are great without extra sauce). Portions are very large, we almost always take some home with us.

I've been eating at The Totem since I was a child. About 50 years now. So I might be a bit biased. I've had a few dinners and lunches there over the years but the majority has always been breakfast at 10:00 with friends and family. It's about great food in ample portions with great company. It's where the locals... More

We've been wanting to try this restaurant for breakfast, and stopped in this morning around 9:30 am. While busy, there was no wait, and we were seated immediately. We were asked by our hostess if we wanted something to drink and were brought our coffee and water immediately. I chose the french toast plate w/ 1 egg and bacon...my husband... More

We like to have breakfast here. It's nostalgic to sit in an old-style diner. And the portions are large enough to share. It's easy access on and off the freeway too and free parking.
