Beth's Cafe (Seattle, WA)

Got back yesterday from a quick jaunt to Seattle, where I had a wonderful time catching up with my sister and her family. A highlight of the trip was eating at Beth's Cafe, a true "greasy spoon" (in the best sense of the phrase!) in the Green Lake district of the city.

Around since 1954, Beth's has appeared on several "best" lists over the years and is renowned for its hash browns (cooked in butter, we think) and 12-egg omelets. The restaurant walls are also festooned in hand-drawn crayon pictures, encouraged—and apparently collected—by the owners. Very fun. Needless to say, after eating what looked and felt like a pound of hash browns each, we spent the next hour walking around the lake!

Beth's Cafe and Green Lake are both highly recommended the next time you're in Seattle.

"I'll have a BLT and hash browns, please!"
My sister opted for just hash browns (yum!).
