Love those hole in the walls

After seeing the reviews on the food channels, we decided to make Beths Cafe a must try on our vacation in Seattle. It was a Sunday afternoon visit, the line up was down the street when we got there, but Beths did allow patrons a coffee while they waited in line. We waited about half an hour but... read more

Very eclectic. Customer done artwork on the walls. Cute, but very cluttered. The seating area felt cramped. Very much an artsy/bohemian type of environment--if you like that kind of thing. Women's restroom was disgusting and the toilet wouldn't flush. Food was OK, but we would never go back

Not luxury, Classic American Diner. The place itself is not big, and sometime you have to wait to sit. We came here for BreakFast, having in mind a chapter of Man vs. Food. The menu include all the classic American food, the size are very big, and the quality good. The very special are the giant "omelettes" with any possible... More

Since we have the same name and we found this place by watching Man vs. Food, we had to give it a try! So me and 8 other friends visiting the area met for supper. I had gravy biscuits, sausage, eggs, and good lord at the hash browns!!! Very good food. The walls are decorated with some great customer drawn... More

We are visiting Washington from California, and a local told us to go try this place out. There's always a little bit of a way and it seems to be almost in the middle of nowhere, but it was delicious. The Amish Friendship Bread is amazing, and they sell it and if you ask for some jam on the side... More

My wife and I heard about this place from the travel channel on TV and wanted to check it out while we were in Seattle. We were not disappointed .The food was great. The portions were huge and the price was great. I have to admit it looks like a dive but it was great. They also have a killer... More

I was worried that all the hype would be a huge let down but it was not. The decor is interesting to say the least but the food is fantastic! The food is super cheap and you get a ton! Where else can you get a 12 egg omelet at 4am?

I'm a breakfast person, so the bigger the better for me! Which made this perfect. The smallest omelette (their specialty) you can get is a 6 egg omelette. But I don't think it's that out of this world good, I think the big portions, that it's open 24 hours (great to stop at for some late night food on your... More

Our family enjoyed breakfast for lunch yesterday. Beth's is a unique little diner that serves giant portions of food! I ordered strawberry pancakes with a side of bacon and hash browns. My 3 large pancakes arrived with a heaping helping of strawberries and whipped cream followed by the same size plate holding 4 slabs of bacon and the hash browns... More

A small place with most of the interior decorated with pictures drawn by previous customers. The food is basic good cooking with extra large portions. We made the mistake of thinking we needed extra portions and ended up way too much food! We had to walk some extra miles to burn off all the calories we ate.
