One of the few places you can find liver and onions these days. Food is great; atmosphere is dark and divey and fun and vulgar, but in a very fitting way.

From Our Editors

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.
