After a week of pretentious breakfasts of quinoa this and egg-white that, I was ready for a straight-up, no nonsense breakfast without any surprise elements. Planet Java Diner was just the fix I needed. It's a little grubby in the corners and the staff overstretched but the food was simple, tasty and filling. I took a seat at the counter... More

Not often I write so-so reviews but for this one I must. The diner decor was funky, location good and conveniently easy to find in the Pioneer Square area but breakfast was just ordinary. It wasn't awful, but wasn't the one the knocked it out of the park. Price was reasonable, service friendly but was just missing a bit of... More

Very cool diner with fun decor, great food and good lattes. Drew made our experience fun with excellent, kid-friendly service. The food was served quickly and the prices were really good compared to some of the other breakfast spots we visited.

Just finished delicious breakfast before the Underground Tour. Found Planer Java on tripadvisor. We had pancakes, garden omelette. Nice hashbrowns, fluffy pancakes. Fresh ingredients including avocado. Cool nostalgia decor and nice staff. Perfect way to start day.

We were directed to this diner by a local and it was a great recommendation for a great value breakfast in a city. The menu was typical of many diners throughout the USA but it was what we needed to set us up for the day. The service was friendly and efficient and the food was good. The music was... More

We were staying at the Marriott Courtyard and this was a nearby breakfast/lunch stop. So glad we ventured out! Great service, excellent home cooked food and the restaurant is immaculate. We both had omelets that were cooked to perfection with just the right amount of filling. The biscuit was like those we get down south. Wished it had been later... More

We really enjoyed our breakfast here. It was all standard brunch fare (nothing "foodie" or fancy) and the prices matched! The restaurant also had a funky, laid-back feel to the oldies decor. The wait-staff were friendly, but seemed a little over-worked.
