This place in downtown Seattle is a great spot for breakfast. The food is excellent, the service is very good and the atmosphere is enjoyable. The prices are not at all bad considering the quality of the fare. We were staying at the Courtyard at Pioneer Square and decided to go out for breakfast. We found this place on TripAdvisor... More

Wanted somewhere quick and easy to take a couple of foreign visitors between meeting them at King Street Station (Sounder Train) and Bill Speidel's Underground Tour at Pioneer Square. Planet Java Diner, just a few blocks from each, fit the bill perfectly. Pleasant diner environment. Varied menu. The prices were reasonable and the food was good. Excellent service.

Went for breakfast here twice, Planet Java is a real throwback kind of place. There are a million places like this on the East Coast, very few out here. Breakfast is tasty, cooked to order and large portions. A lot of choices including omelettes, scrambles, pancakes etc. Service is great and the food comes out quickly and hot. Only negative... More

Breakfast was great! I think one waitress was running the whole joint, but she made it look easy! Fun diner decor too!
