Finally made it to Beth's after years of "thinking" about it. The experience lived up to the Legend. We arrived around midnight and there was no wait though it was pretty busy. We had the Sausage Gravy and Biscuits with a side of Bacon. Pancakes with more Bacon and French Toast. The Biscuits and Gravy was gigantic. The pancake filled... More

Oh, where do I begin? I had heard all of the hype and when my friends were visiting from LA, I was excited that they wanted to go to the famous Beth's Café on a Sunday afternoon. My partner and I arrived earlier than the rest of my friends and were pretty stoked that we found parking right away. When... More

My family of 4 shared the 12 egg omelet and still could not finish. Coffee is so good and service is excellent. We like leaving our drawings on the wall and also admiring those that have been left. I am sure many other items on the menu are good but we always just stop in for breakfast (served 24/7).

Ate here on our way to Leavenworth and definitely left with full bellies. We each had a 6 egg omelet and enjoyed every bite. Wish my stomach was big enough for the whole thing. Pretty cool to see all the pictures lining the walls. Adds a little flair to the space.

Wow, what a serving. Came to Beth's with my partner and ordered a 12 egg omelette between us which tasted fantastic and was great value too, I think it was $19 for both of us, considering we both left completely stuffed and brought some home in a box. Also ordered milkshakes which were extremely tasty and very large. The drawings... More

The food was amazing.. Even in the 12 egg omelette size. Pretty sure I did the challenge (didn't really notify anyone) and I finished the plate. Didn't get anything for it, but thought that it was still fun and good food. I guess I will have to go back and do it again!

I had to stop at Beth's Cafe because my name is Beth and my sister insisted I go here after seeing it on the Food Network. The atmosphere and food were great. The bacon was mouth-watering. The hashbrowns were tasty and the 9 grain bread was very thick and filling. I did not finish my plate. The traditional diner grease... More

Wanted to try this cafe after seeing it on a re-run of "Man vs. Food." Prices high and food mediocre. And the level of cleanliness made me wonder if I was going to pay for meal in a different way. That being said, the portions are huge and could easily be shared. Visitors are invited to "color" and guests art... More

My Seattle-ite daughter insisted we have breakfast at Beth's. This place is small try and go during off times. The walls and menu covers are filled with their customers's artistic crayon creations. The food, oh the food, take your appetite! The omelets are either 6 or 12 egg! We split, for a small fee, a six egg. The northwestern with... More

Our party was over 6 people, which means that the Beth’s Cafe automatically charges gratuity even if your wait service was terrible. We refused to pay the gratuity, due to the poor service, but the manager on duty said they could not take it off the bill as it is automatically added by their cash register. Under duress, it was...
