“Good 'late night' stand-by after a late arrival at a local hotel in Belltown”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

We arrived late at the La Quinta hotel and suites in Seattle's Belltown area. The front desk staff advised that the closed place to eat was the Hurricane Cafe located in the lane behind their hotel. Too tired and in the mood for a quick and casual eatery, we headed to the Hurricane, to find a local well established diner, your typical 'greasy spoon' and with a slight smelly atmosphere, lol. Friendly service, I can see that this would be great for a family with kids. The extensive menu offers all the greasy comfort foods one would expect and we ate with great appetite after a long days drive. My husband had a burger, fries and a huge thick milk shake. I had the potato skins with bacon and sour cream, which hit the spot., we picked up some drinks at the Shell convenience store on the corner across the strees. This is all we required to get settled on upon arrival. jThe breakfast at the La Quinta Hotel is a general continental, with pancakes and waffles. If you require bacon and eggs, the Hurricane is of course available - looks like they are open all the time !
One block down from that area is the "Whole Foods" pavillion, which offers an amazing choice of prepared foods, like a food court, and you will not be disapponted. Even the most picky eater can manage to find something yummy there. If you walk up Bell street, you will find several restaurants in a row there, ranging from Indian food to Mexican foods and a good deli. I recommend the Hurricane Cafe for families and late-night arrivals who want a very relaxed and casual atmosphere.

“Great Breakfast in a Scary Looking Package”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

This place does not look like much on the outside. Looks like quite the dive bar to me. I had four things driving me here. (1) Location was right next to the Best Western Loyal Inn. (2) It is open 24 hours, so I could breakfast here early. (3) I got tired of the hotel's free breakfast each day. (4) There is nothing else around.

Visited here twice over a seven day stay. Both times for breakfast. The food was excellent. The staff was very attentive and kind. Coffee refills came regularly, no empty cup waiting. Food was fresh and tasty.

Outside it looks like a place to catch hepatitis, but that is clearly wrong. Glad I took a chance on the Hurricane and was well pleased. Kudos to the staffers, too. Great job.

Efficient and friendly. Great food for a reasonable price. Convenient and cozy. Always open. Restroom could use some attention.

“Fantastically fresh salad.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

Came here for lunch with some colleagues, had the house salad an the onion rings. The salad was very fresh and crisp. The ranch dressing tastes unique perhaps with a touch of dill. The onion rings were good, they were a bit greasy, one had just skin and no onion in it. Very traditional diner food. The local beer was a pale ale and was very fruity and quite delicious.

“Breakfast all day in Seattle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I went here with her brother. He goes here a lot because it's near his office. We went at 10pm and had breakfast. Plates came with "endless homefries". They have a full bar too so you can have a vodka tonic while you're eating them. : )
