It's not much of a leap to guess that chef Eddie James is the head cook and owner of Chef Eddie's. Along with his wife, Bess, he cooks up tangy barbecue and traditional soul food with all the southern-style fixings. Whether cooking for diners in the laid-back eatery or catering for a private party, chef Eddie aims to please with his red-wine-marinated beef ribs and seasoned barbecue chicken, slow-cooked and smothered in sweet, mildly spicy barbecue sauce. His restaurant's walls sparkle with history, adorned with memorabilia from the Civil War and the Civil Rights movement. Motown nights and Sunday gospel brunches keep the eatery echoing with song, and poetry nights fill in the gaps when instruments take a break to fill up on waffles and fried chicken.

A review in the Stranger called The 5 Point Café “inarguably one of Seattle’s—indeed, the world’s—best dive bars.” The Seattle Times aptly described the eatery as “a rare blend of homespun and depraved,” a reputation it's honed since 1929. Founder C. Preston Smith cashed in at the end of Prohibition, but it was his son Dick who cemented 5 Point’s notoriety with various stunts. He installed a periscope in the men’s room that still stands today, looking out at the Space Needle, and he had bikini-clad waitresses on roller skates plug expired meters around the neighborhood, leaving friendly notes behind.

The 24-hour eatery serves breakfast all day and night to pair with stiff drinks and frothy beers poured along the bar. Hearty plates arrive loaded with eggs benedict, huevos rancheros, and housemade spicy black beans or 1/3-pound burgers made from natural Oregon ground beef. Deep-fried jalapeno mac 'n' cheese balls lead off meals of open-faced turkey sandwiches or tofu scrambles that feature housemade curry.
