best funky dive

The Five Point is that funky dive you just can't resist going to. Loud music playing from the jukebox, and huge portions of really good breakfast food. Everything is good, even the toast.

Good tasting diner style food, served By friendly competent staff. We brought our 15-21 year olds. Place has an attitude that our teen/young adults enjoyed. Don't bring anyone under 10. Not a place kids can run around.

Apparently Kurt Cobain drank here back in the day. Sure, he probably drank many places in Seattle, but this place is just overflowing with Seattle vibe, right down to the jukebox with Soundgarden, Mother Love Bone, Nirvana, etc on it! The service was great, the prices reasonable and the tunes were just loud enough. The food looked good, didn't see... More

We stopped in for a burger at mid-afternoon. The fish sandwich (special) was delicious and super hot. The burbon blues burger was a bit dry and cold. The fries were cold on both plates. The tater tots showed up 5 minutes later, but were great and super hot. We will give 5 Point another shot on a different day. We... More

We came here on a recommendation from a friend. We were so happy with our experience we were kicking our selves we didn't go sooner. This bar and café is what you see is what you get. They are upfront honest and great service if you treat them as human beings and not your slaves. Stiff drinks and yummy burgers.... More

Got dinner with my cousin before hitting up the Space Needle. One word: Amazing. Ate a burger and drank Northwest Crazy B---- IPA. Our waiter was witty & dry, which was hysterical. If you're into dives, give this place a try.

On our last night in Seattle, we stumbled into the 5 Point and had a great diner experience. We enjoyed the atmosphere, food and most importantly, a refreshing adult beverage after a long day of site seeing!

This diner was close to our hotel and on the way to the Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibit, so we stopped in for a quick breakfast. This diner is open 24-7 and serves cheap eats... very good cheap eats. It's also a dive bar that plays juke box music at all hours. If Led Zeppelin and Van Halen with your... More

I think that the 5 Point Cafe is the oldest greasy spoon in all of Seattle. Nestled on Cedar street just off of 5th Ave in the shadow of the Space Needle, this hole in the wall joint sits next to a small park area littered with the homeless. A sign in the front window that once read, "Cook on... More

Ended up here after eating across the street, the Neon lights of Five Points Café enticed me and the down low atmosphere was real slacker, the workers did not care if you were served, rudeness seemed to be the welcoming style, watered down and expensive drinks the norm, a bathroom that was worthy of a third world country and people...
