While in Seattle we went to The 5 Point Cafe for dinner. My friend Cathleen had been there before and loved it. On the recommendation we went to the place that boasts “Alcoholics serving alcoholics since 1929″. Sounded like my kind of place.
As an added bonus it was a stone’s throw from where I was staying, very easy to find, close to the Space Needle. It was wonderful, the staff was friendly and patient with us as we perused the menu, there are so many choices and the food arrived fresh and hot. I got the Turkey Melt which was delicious. The turkey was roasted in house and so good, not dry at all. The blueberry pancakes were a big hit with our group and the mac and cheese was also a favourite. The menu is large and anybody should be able to find something they want The 5 Point Cafe Menu. Also take the time to read the “Warning”, “Be nice to our staff” and “We can throw you out” blurbs on the menu.
The juke box in the corner is packed full of great songs and customers happily kept plugging quarters in to play songs. It’s a great little place and I’ll definitely go back for the food and the atmosphere.
Also there is a “Cock on duty”:
