The menu was small but everything looked delicious! Didnt know what to try but decided on "the chub" with fried chicken & an over easy egg, poutine fries & pork belly with grits. It was all good & rich! The potatoes that came with the sandwich was sooo good it almost tasted like thanksgiving stuffing. The fried chicken would be... More

A real crowd pleasing sort of place (and we were a crowd, and they handled us great). Everyone enjoyed what they ate and drank. My chicken sammy was awesome. Drinks were innovative and delivered. would go back.

We sadly waited until our last day to check out this place and were sad we didn't come here sooner! Such excellent food and close to our hotel! The cornbread waffle was new to me and I thought it was fantastic! Great coffee and service and overall a place I'd recommend if you're in the area!

My friend and I went here for breakfast. Both our meals (pancakes and yoghurt/fruit/granola) were very good. The staff is friendly and the place looks nice.

I'm new to the area and was pleasantly surprised. This restaurant is within walking distance of my new condo. I had a fabulous salad this time but I'm eager to try some of their other dishes.

Really looked hard to find a breakfast place in the East Seattle neighborhood where we were staying. Drove here, found a parking spot (pretty easily) and settled into a comfy booth. Coffee, both regular and decaf, were quick to arrive and were excellent. We both had "My Way" - your choice of eggs / bacon / baguette/ b'fast potatoes. The... More

Even at 10:30-ish on a Tuesday morning, this place was busy. I can understand why. This being my 2nd visit, I decided to really go for a special dish. My Grits & Belly was so very tasty, perfectly cooked, and a crazy big portion to boot. My companion's Mike Scramble was pretty good, but certainly not quite as noteworthy as... More

The diner is a little walk from Downtown and its a good break from the tall buildings. The food is great. Would propose to make reservations prior for breakfast as it does get busy. The outdoor seating opens after 10am.

This is our first time to this restaurant, we were taking so college friends out to dinner and they recommended this spot. For us it was a little out of the way but walking distance for the kids, we were not disappointed. We made reservations to be on the safe side as we understand it can get crowded, as they... More

Came here because of the hype, very disappointed. Scrambled eggs are so horrendous they serve it with ketchup that only makes it worse. I got the griddle cakes, some were not even fully cooked and it's hard to spread the butter. Imagine a classical American diner with a hipster decor and hipster waitstaff and mediocre food, that's this place.
