This place has an awesome breakfast. I've past by it so many times not knowing it was there. You ask why? Planet Java closes at 2 pm everyday. So make sure you get there before 2 pm. Full breakfast menu with a nice hot java.

We were directed here by a tour guide otherwise we would never have discovered this restaurant. The ambiance is reminiscent of an old fashioned diner without the aluminum shell. One cannot help but feeling cozy in the homey atmosphere. Then the wait staff comes over and treats guests like long lost family members. My three ham and cheese omelet looked... More

Good diner food and a GREAT cup of coffee. Opted for the sausage gravy biscuits with the eggs and hash browns. Eggs cooked perfectly and the hash browns fresh and crispy. Sausage gravy biscuits tasty though the gravy was not hot. GREAT ambiance with unique clocks and traditional diner decor. Friendly staff.

We discovered Planet Java several years go when we went to Seattle. Now we go there several times each visit. It's a welcome change to a free hotel breakfast. Planet Java is always extremely busy and the wait staff are almost running to keep everyone served. On game days there is a smaller breakfast menu. No omelets on game days.... More

While visiting Seattle on our way to Vancouver and Alaska we were advised to try Planet Java for breakfast. It is a retro diner on a side street in downtown. When we saw the cops and firemen there I knew we were in the right place. Whatever you want, however you want is no problem here. Food was great as... More
