12 egg omelette! okay service, weird inside.

So.. 12 egg omelette was impressive and fairly priced BUT the cheese in it was gross and made it so i couldnt finish my portion of the omelette I was sharing. The service was pretty lame but nothing terrible. The interior is some thrown together display of kids arts and crafts on the wall so its... read more

Beth's is a quirky little breakfast place. They are famous for their large portions, which I will give them credit for. I was so excited to come here after a local friend hyped up the place but I think it was pretty underwhelming. I ordered the corned beef hash, which is personally my favorite breakfast entree and I order it... More

We finally made it! I have nothing but great things to say. Food, friendly service, and vibe was all worth the hour wait! Love the coloring decorations on the walls. Definitely coming back to have breakfast for dinner. Excellent!!!

I stopped in because my wife's name is Beth and I'm glad I did because the food was just as awesome as my wife. I got the chili burger and added an egg...I had to eat it with a fork. I got my goddaughter their "mini" egg and sausage and it could fill an adult. She's a picky eater and... More

Just amazing. Food network worthy staff and the decor was just bizarre enough. Menu items like "triple bypass" tell the tale.

這是我們在西雅圖的一個晚餐,也是我們兩星期行程中最後的一個晚餐。這一夜,太太的哥堅持同家人說不在家食飯,我們一行四人來到西雅圖北部的對岸,目標就是一間馳名的奄列店,名字叫《Beth's Cafe》 。 這《Beth's Cafe》 為何會那麼出名,為何會令到內子的兄長專程要帶我們來呢? 原因,就是這一家店的特大奄列。在是次行程中的最後一個晚上,我們4人行,來到北部的對岸 Aurora Avenue,找來這一個門面一點也不光鮮的24小時早餐奄列店。 門面的招牌很古舊,同樣,店字的內內外外都很古舊,是名符其實的一間老店。晚上來,沒有燈光,感覺不到其門面的老感覺,但在網上看過一些此店的大白天照,這的確是一個老地方,老牌的老美咖啡店,也即是同我們香港的茶餐廳一樣。 有卡位,仲唔係茶餐廳! 仲要係老牌冰室的樣子。不過,店子的古舊感,就被牆上的圖畫取替了。之前去過一間餐廳,他們會給小朋友一張圖畫紙,小朋友畫好了,就會貼在餐廳門口的牆壁上展示。然而,《Beth's Cafe》 的圖畫就不是由小朋友所畫,是由我們一眾成年人食客畫的,而且可以自由發揮,畫上對這一間餐廳的感想,或其他你喜歡的東西。 牆貼滿了,就連餐牌也不放過。單是我手上的 Menu,已有忍者龜同一個很奇怪的菜頭人來做封面同封底。 同好多在電視劇中見過的舊美式餐廳一樣,餐廳有一座流聲機,可供客人們點歌仔之用。仲有,小店有一個機房,喜愛打 pinball,打槍 game 的朋友,這兒有三部機可以讓你大顯身手。 此店馳名的是奄列,所以我們只看 Omelette 的那一頁 menu,一共有六款 Omelette 可選擇,若是不喜歡指定口味的話,同 pizza 一樣,可以自行配搭。而且他們提供了兩個 size,一個是 6 egg, 另一個是 12 egg。在此,我領會到多一樣野,美國除薯仔、糖同牛奶之外,雞蛋都係唔值錢的東西。說開著仔,Omelette 配一份 Hash Brown,而且這Hash Brown是任食的。 小小溫提,Omelette 原意是每人一份,若是大家要 share 的話,每一位要吉碟用來分享的朋友,要多收 US$1.50。 煎雞蛋的地方,就是正門對著的 open kitchen。N 多盤的雞蛋準備就緒,廚子們的最主要工作,就是煎 Omelette。 6隻蛋的是太太要的 The Veggie,淨是 Omelette 本身,已經佔用了一整個大碟。再計埋底層的一大片 Hash Brown,加上兩片多士,這,絕對是兩個中國人的份量。素食版的 Omelette,餡料有蕃茄、蘑菇及黑橄欖,亦因為有黑橄欖在內,味道不會太過單調。幸好這東西沒有加入芝士,若是有......沒可能食得晒。 我們另外點了一份 12隻蛋的,味道是 Southwestern Exposure,這一個...

I expected that this joint would be right up my alley and they some how exceeded my expectations. Delicious milkshakes and breakfast. I would definitely return if I'm ever in this part of Seattle again.

Neat little greasy spoon diner where you can take on a Man vs Food challenge in the form of a 12 egg omelet. Color a picture and hang it on the walls, everyone does it. Lots of fun, wait staff kinda cranky, but hey.....

It's a divey looking place but the food is excellent. A few locals I know have been suggesting Beth's Cafe for awhile, so while in Seattle I went to look for it. It is very easy to miss. The tiny sign with a rusty pig with wings on it jutting out over the sidewalk gives very little warning. Finding a... More

A Seattle name stay, Beth's has been around for ages. Nestled off of Aurora Ave N. right across from Green Lake, this unsuspecting place is easily overlooked. The small sign outside is the only announcement of their location and if you're not careful, you will mistake the sign for something else other than a cafe. The place has been around... More
