The one thing you get with the 5 spot is consistency. The food has been the same for years, but the price continues to go up. I used to frequent here for their daily 5 spot specials(5 bucks for a plate of food until its gone), but those are long gone as well. I avoid this place like the plague on Sunday's as the line can go around the corner.

Late night drinks are great, and the staff is typically friendly.

I was looking for the no star option. Truly, this 'restaurant' has the absolute worst service I have ever seen. It was as if the servers were on Planet Inept, Apathetic, and Incivil the entire time. I made the mistake of giving this

Everyone dreams of having a cozy little breakfast place in their neighborhood - a place you can roll out of bed and count on to wash the taste of Saturday night out of your mouth. 5 Spot is the quintessential cure for the Sunday morning

Love to go here after a night out and eat their great breakfast. They have large portions and quick service. It makes for great entertainment at the end of the night. People from all walks eat here. It is a bit of a greasy diner but fun.

I have been to "5 Spot" twice and enjoyed the cinnamon swirl French toast with caramel sauce on both visits. Although $9.00 seems rather expensive for French toast, it is worth it. You will be served two thick slices of cinnamon swirl

I usually go to the 5 Spot for late night happy hour ($5 dinners, $1 dollar PBR). I just went there today (Sunday breakfast) and it SUCKED. Eggshells in eggs, all 5 plates had wrong egg orders, undercooked potatoes, disgusting pork chop

i love that the 5 spot has their regular dishes (the ruben is really good) as well as a menu that changes with the changing theme. the restaurant will pick a location to focus on and prepare food from that region. it can range from hawaiian to the south to moroccan to home favorite (pacific northwest).

These guys do a great job of providing "diner" food without all the grease in a casual atmosphere. A great place to go in the morning for brunch on a rainy day. The place warms me up.

Fun, quirky restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere and changable, regional menu with artwork to correspond. The fare was "Heartland" oriented (Midwestern) and there were some authentic items and ones that had a Northwestern flair infused.

I love Five Spot for its fun atmosphere, delicious food, and rotating menu. Besides their staples like fried chicken, pork chop, and fried green tomatoes, Five Spot has an additional menu that rotates every few months. It is from a different region of the world like Argentina or even Georgia. Come hungry because they serve big portions!

The looks of the place give a person the impression that this food will be to die for. Theres always an enormous line outside the restaurant, indicating people are willing to wait to eat at the 5 Spot. Well, I live in Queen Anne, so the idea of a good neighborhood breakfast place is appealing to me. But as many times as I have tried this restaurant, I have yet to feel fully satisfied with the meals quality and the restaurants service in respect to the prices charged. Go to Queen Anne Caf for a better priced deal with food thats just as good.
