Basically the best mix of all things breakfast and then some. You hear some of the items on menu like fried chicken and kale scramble and you think "that's real?" It is and it's amazing. Although I always default to the poutine and the grilled cheese is excellent as well. Go early (8:30am) and you won't have to wait in... More

My wife and I ate at this restaurant on our last day during a long weekend in Seattle. I was somewhat tired being the Best man at my brothers wedding. I ate the biscuits in gravy and the food warmed my soul. The food was rich and had a lot of flavour. The portion was generous but overwhelming. The prices... More

7 of us dined at the Skillet tonight. It was my husband's & my first time. We were seated promptly, we asked our waiter to alter the Cobb Salad to have a hard boiled egg, instead of soft boiled. He put in the request, but it didn't happen. The salad was large, delicious, & the soft boiled egg made it... More

We made late brunch reservations and were not sure how far it was from the light rail stop--we walked from the light rail and got there 30 minutes ahead of our reservations. Instead of waiting, we happily sat at the counter---and actually it made for a better first-time experience as we saw all the various dishes move by as they... More

Worth the wait , we we're staying in the capital hill area. Nice wait area with heated awing to stay warm and dry. All of us had bloody Mary's and the cinnamon roll , sage biscuit and gravy was wonderful. Very nice wait staff , we'll be going back again on this trip !

Stopped by for some dinner and wound up with some excellent comfort food. Ordered a grilled cheese/tomato soup and the grilled corn. Both were delicious!

My 13-year-old daughter and I stopped in for the first time last weekend. We were immediately seated in a booth back by the bar and our friendly waitress arrived to take drink orders within the first minute. The food and service were fantastic. The waitress cleverly sold us on how good their cinnamon rolls are, so we had to try... More

Arrived late, was looking for somewhere close by to the hotel, first place we went was out of half the menu, so just a block down further we came across this gem. Had the poutine fries, definitely recommend, and a bowl of the tomato bisque which was great! Husband had the pork belly and waffle, also very good. All in... More

I never have a bad meal here. The ever-evolving menu is always tasty. Tonight's selection was the meatloaf and wow, what a production. I've never eaten meatloaf so delicious in my life and it was massive! The service was excellent snd the overall vibe of the place is fun and cozy.
