6 eggs or 12 egg omelet...... you pick! Huge stack of hashbrowns topped with an extremely large mushroom and cheese filled egg heaven! Great hangover killer with the toast. One caution the omelets can be a little oily.

The hash browns are plentiful as are the eggs. The raspberry jam is good. And the waitress the receipt said her name was teacup. She simply rocks and is mighty easy on the eyes. Gorgeous. sweet, and very efficient considering the number of customers.

No place like it. Worth the wait anytime of day (open 24hours). Just an awesome place with all kinds of history. The food is great, the 12 egg omelet is so yummy and I cannot say enough about the bacon!!!! Its sooooo thick!!! the coffee isn't bad either!

Come one; Come all to this under-rated cafe. Sure, there is only street parking, it is between two bars and just from the looks of this cafe, you might need to have a tetanus shot after. Was hungry after taking some picture nearby, only problem was it was after midnight and not many places were fully opened (kitchen's had a... More

We were in the Seattle area for a wedding. We were looking for a place to eat breakfast as we had stayed in the Greenlake area. We goggled and found out we were just a few miles away. We found easy parking and a line outside. The surroundings seem a bit seedy, However the wait was short and the inside... More

New to the area and heard about Beth's and since we love a good breakfast we made the trip into town. It was definitely worth it. The food was exceptional and the coffee was excellent. Service was great. Didn't care much for the decor but that doesn't detract from the food. We had the pancakes and the Country Benedict and... More

You want a 12 egg omelette? This is the place for you. The food is good, the atmosphere so-so, the service not bad. When I'm hungry for a breakfast, this is my go-to place. It's been around 60 years and I've been going for 40 of 'em.
