An acquaintance recommended Glo's restaurant and warned us there would be a wait. We waited for 45 minutes for a BAD table (right next to the restrooms) and then waited another 30 minutes to get our order taken. It was packed and loud.

but who cares? Good things come to those who wait. In this case, GREAT things come to those who really wait ... for a long time. Everything about this place is slow. Just be patient, plan to have a 2 - 2.5 hour experience, and be patient some more.

It means something when a place has food so good that they can treat you with indifference, and you still feel the need to tip high because of the exceptional tastes.

I only wish I could go more often. Go during the weekdays. The weekends are horrible. They've changed the hours for Friday and Saturday night: Midnight-4pm. Yes, you heard that right. I haven't been at 3am, but it's an intriguing proposition.

Upon stepping into this small diner style cafe on Saturday morning around 9:30am, I was greeted by a very friendly hostess. It was very crowded and I was lead to the last table available in a little corner near the restrooms. There were fresh purple and yellow daisies on the nice wood table.The service was slow, but the atmosphere was lively and interesting with conversation all around and copies of ??The Stranger? and ??Seattle Weekly? available to peruse through. The coffee was unexpectedly yummy given the ??Denny??s? style mugs it was delivered in. They also brought water with no ice! This was a special treat, because I really don??t like ice in my water. I don??t know if this was intentional, and when I looked around no one else had ice either, so if this is their standard way of serving water, I have to give them kudos!

When my food arrived it was artistically presented on the plate (with a pink grapefruit garnish -instead of the standard orange garnish most establishments use-really nice touch), but they got part of the order wrong which they quickly corrected. My eggs were cooked to a perfect ??over medium?? (this is very rarely done correctly-usually eggs are undercooked), but they were a little too salty for my taste. The bacon was your average diner bacon, nothing to get excited about, the hash browns were flavorful with just the right amount of crispy layer, and the wheat toast had just the right amount of butter melted on it. Overall a good experience. But be aware this place is popular and does get crowded..by the time I left around 10:30am there was a line out the door.

Pros: Good breakfast food, lively atmosphere

This tiny little breakfast joint is incredible! I am something of a eggs benedict connoisseur, and these are by far the BEST. The hollandaise is absolute perfection! You may have to wait a bit because this place is pretty popular, but you'll have a delicious cup of coffee in the meantime. A word to the wise...call ahead and place your name on the list...you won't wait as long. What you will do is enjoy a DELICOUS breakfast in a small and quant restaurant. Enjoy!

Ridicuosly long wait for dirty tables, chairs, menus - and how long has that jam been in the jar on the table? The service was HORRIBLE by everyone, our food was cold and bland when we FINALLY received it. Had to beg for our check so we could get out of there!

I have no idea why anyone would give them their service - I know I never will again. I am assuming that this was a great dive breakfast joint in the past, but no longer.

I have signed up solely to give this place a bad review. Let me preface: I used to love Glo's. On a lovely summer day, this place is great. The hour wait isn't so bad when you can bask in the sun. And the food here really is fantastic. I would also like to say that I have worked in restaurants for five years, instilling in me a great empathy and patience with servers, cooks, and restaurant staff. I understand how stressful and awful it can be. I totally get it.

Having said that, the servers at Glo's have absolutely no idea what they are doing. I'm throwing in the towel on this restaurant. I give up. So Glo's, if someone comes up to put their name on the list and asks how long of a wait, here's a tip: look at the list, look at the room of full of tables, and tell them the truth. If there is at least two turns worth of people on the list before them, TELL THEM THE TRUTH. I was told 30 minutes to 40 minutes. I waited patiently. Then, after fifty minutes, I asked how much longer. They told me there was one table before me. I asked them how much longer they think that would be and the server, irritably and condescendingly, explains to me, "Well that all depends on how long people take to eat." YES, I KNOW THIS. However it also depends on how long YOU take to take their order, make their food and give them their check. I guess that's hard to gauge when you are standing outside talking to friends. YOU work here so YOU know how long it will be. I am trying not to presume, so I am asking you. I ask again. She says twenty minutes. Oh, okay, so the first time, when you said 35 minutes, you meant an hour and ten minutes. Thank you, so much, for that clarification. Thank you for stringing me along. If you had told me the truth the first time, I wouldn't have even bothered waiting. But if you just slowly add on more time every twenty minutes or so, I'll keep waiting, won't I?

Glo's, screw you. You aren't worth it.

Cons: everything else

Even though the service at Glo could be better and the wait is pretty long, it does have some of the best breakfast. I definitely recommend their eggs Benedict.

Wow, I heard this was a great place to have a good breakfast...Hmmm. Well lets see you wait out in the rain for over 20 minutes then you are seated by the (not happy) waitress o here menus thrown down on the table. Then 20 minutes later the water arives waitress off again another 20 minutes your order is taken hoping for a coffee refill, NOT 20 minutes after that your order dropped and you better ask for anything you aare going to need then including the check unless you have alot of time on your hand. I order the california eggs beny, the cook lost one yok in the water and the other was hard boiled. To sum it up save yourself some time well alot of time and pass on this GLO' experience.

Glo's is one of the best places for breakfast/brunch in town. They freshly squeeze the orange juice. They do take the time to make your meal the right way. The short, brunette waitress is awesome, and remembers you. My boyfriend and I have been going here for over 2 years, when we moved about 2 blocks away. They NEVER had an issue with to-go orders, even happily chopping up my boyfriend's side of sausage. I took my mom and my aunt here for a late breakfast one day, and they LOVED it, asking every time they're in town if we can go to Glo's. Mom and Dad have gone there with me and my boyfriend on a few occasions, and have always been treated very well. I always have the eggs blackstone, which is amazing, and I've tried to replicate it at other places when I can't have Glo's. If you arrive before 1pm, yeah, you're going to wait, because it's that good. But if you can't understand that, and get all butt hurt that the waitress doesn't immediately pounce on you because, heaven forbid, she might actually think you'd like a few minutes with the menu and to relax and chitchat with your companions, or, even more unheard of, that she might actually be BUSY, then move along. More coffee and o.j. for me, and others like me who love Glo's!

Pros: Coffee and a constant supply of cream and sugar while you wait, fresh o.j., delicious food, great staff

Cons: No parking, long wait before 1pm, self-serving hipsters that take up tables ahead of you.

A trendy dive?
A cool "in the know" spot?
Because it?s not a chain?

There?s something that brings diners to Glo's. Is it the coffee that you can sip while you?re waiting for your table? Is it the fresh made daily hollandaise sauce? For us, it was because we have read in every Seattle rag and online review about how great Glo?s is. . . . What have we been missing? Well as it turns out, not much.

If you go, bring a book or an entertaining companion and a lot of time on your hands.

Sipping our coffee with others out front, we waited over 40 minutes for our table (a very popular place) though we could see that they were slow to clean/turn the tables. There were only 2 servers, but come on, there are only 13 tables.

Once sat, our server came by our table a few times - water pitcher, coffee pitcher - but wouldn?t take our order (?. . . I?ll be back to take your order?). The ladies were doing a lot of hanging out behind the counter though, talking, enjoying the morning, taking names for the wait list, but definitely not rushed.

20 minutes at the table and our order was finally taken after we had to ask, again. Apparently, there was some confusion over which tables were sat before the others (the server told me the order that you are sat is the order that they take your food order) so we sat some more.

The menu is expansive and there is something for everyone. We had the California Benedict (of course) and the simple one egg breakfast and began another waiting game. Again , bring a book or share The Stranger.

Food took another 25 minutes (2 cooks, but again, only 13 tables).

We had invested over 2 ? hours into this experience.
I would?ve tipped more, but they just didn?t deserve it.

The results:
Coffee: good, then again, it?s coffee and this is Seattle.
Hollandaise: overrated, way too lemony.
Service: very slow but with a smile.
Time: Efficiency would improve wait times outside and at the table.

Would I go back: not a chance.

I had seen the lines outside of Glo's and decided it must be worth the wait, so I went for Sunday brunch. In reality, it wasn't worth the wait at all. There was a 30 minute wait for a table (which wasn't so bad), but once we sat down, it took the waitress 15 minutes to take our order, then another 45 minutes for the food to arrive. The couple sitting next to us had a similar wait, and I couldn't help but notice that as soon as their food was on the table, they inhaled their food as quickly as they could to prevent from starving. The food was okay, nothing to write home about. Not what I would consider good diner food (compared to San Francisco & NYC diners). Considering that our total wait time was over an hour and we ate for 10 minutes (albeit the coffee was flowing constantly), I will never eat here again.

Our food never came and the waitress kept blowing us off. We asked about our order and she just said "Ok". Eventually, everyone who had been waiting in line behind us was inside and had their food. We finally left. On our way out, we told the waitress that our food NEVER came (which she knew) and we were giving up and leaving. She said "Ok - whatever". She probably never placed our order. Strange experience. One I don't plan to repeat !

I gotta say, I've seen the ups and down with this place, but it always pulls through in the end with awesome food. Tell me somewhere else you can get everything homemade from a bunch of kids back in that tiny little kitchen with two burners! Glo would be proud to see her little shop still around and bumpin' with business after 20 years. Eggs Benedict, Corned Beef Hash and eggs, Buttermilk Bisquits and gravy. Everything from scratch and TO ORDER!!!! I keep trying to eat breakfast someplace else, but it never works out. Once a lover, always a lover. I forgive them all the wait, as I see many others do week in and week out. Hats off to a great job done!!
P.S. The trick is....call ahead and put your name on the list. It really irritates everyone else!!!

Eggs Benedict is my absolute favorite breakfast food, and I used to order it every time I went out for brunch. However, Glo's has ruined me. No other breakfast place has even come close to the wonderful hollandaise sauce at Glo's, so now I only eat it there. Sure, there's usually a long wait on weekends, but just put your name on the list, ask how long, and browse the bookstore next door for a bit. Problem solved.

We were curious about Glo's because a few weeks ago someone in The Stranger was being interviewed and just mentioned the place in passing, as though everyone knew about it. I've lived in Seattle off and on since birth, but I haven't been living in Cap. Hill most of the time, and I'd never been there. We went today (Sunday) around 1pm and had to wait outside just long enough for my boyfriend to have one smoke, then were seated near the back. The crowd was just perfectly hip (hey dude, Elvis Costello called and wants his look back), but that's life up here these days. Anyway the staff was super nice and the bottomless coffee true to it's name, without effort... but yeah, it took FOREVER for my unbelievably great biscuits and gravy to arrive. Hashbrowns - also great. And I am the worlds biggest hashbrown critic. Even the fresh grapefruit on the side was cut nice and yummy. My BF loved his omelet too. I suggest the specials (that's what we had) but they were out of a few of 'em so I guess get there before 1pm, and I also suggest bringing a sweater because the place is tiny and every time the door opens up it gets a bit chilly. As a side note the music was amusingly unpredictable. Someone in the kitchen had a lot of E.L.O. on their iPod, with some Muse, Wings, Seals & Croft and KORN!!! LoL And by the way, while the customer crowd was hipster, the staff was refreshingly NOT, nor was the decor.

I have eaten at Glo's a number of times over the last few months and their food has been consistently good. The service unfortunately has been consistently bad. However if you are not in a hurry and want a well made breakfast that tastes like something cooked at home I would recommend coming here. Even though the waits can be long they make sure to hook you up with plenty of coffee. Overall I really like this place and while I continue to branch out and try new restaurants I find myself continuously coming back.

This is a casual dinner with a quite colorful clientele. I would not recommend it for anyone who is going to feel out of place or uncomfortable around expressive youths finding their ways.

I was a loyal customer of Glo's for many years....damn best Corn Beef Hash in town. But now the service is terrible, wait staff is rude and dirty, I will never go back again...Quite frankly the love is gone.

Cons: Emo kids are to angsty to wait tables.

I went there for a mediocre breakfast and as I was leaving, I was surprised to see the staff wipe down a table with a rag so dirty it left food on the table. The same staffer then flicked a piece of hash brown off of a water glass as he walked it out to a table. I too noticed the slow service and the staff chatting in the kitchen instead of refilling waters and coffee.

Haven't been back since, wouldnt meet you there if you owed me money.

Citysearch lists the hours as 7-4. I showed up at 3pm and was told that they were closed. When the girl behind the counter became frustrated with my confusion she determined that the best thing to do was to yell at me THREE times with ever-increasing volume that "WE CLOSE AT 4 ON THE WEEKEND!" Thanks, babe, for my excellent "FIRST AND LAST!" experience at Glo's. Fortunately, the area is not at a loss for breakfast joints.

Pros: There are lots of other places to eat nearby

.

For some reason, dumpy-looking places in Seattle seem to have better quality food. I wonder why? I usually get the eggs benedict, omelettes, or one of the combos (2 eggs, 2 meats, a stack of pancakes). The pancakes are superb. Very light and fluffy. I recommend parties of 2-4 and getting there before 10am. You want to beat the Church crowd. The wait to get a table can range from 15-90 minutes. Once you get there, put your name on the list or call ahead and get your name on the list. In addition to waiting for a table, you have to wait for the food, which will take at least 30-45 minutes. You'd be lucky to make it out of there in under 90 minutes with just a party of 2. The service will range from horrible to great.

Pros: Eggs benedict, Pancakes, Coffee cake

Cons: Parking, Long wait

My neighbor took me to Glo's last fall swearing the food was amazing. We didn't have to wait to be seated since it was a weekday in the just post-breakfast time period. The breakfast menu was appealing and I ordered the potato pancakes. After 45 MINUTES in a half empty restaurant, our food finally arrived. There was a mix-up with mine that took another 15-20 minutes to fix and our coffees were only refilled once in over an hour. My friend apologized, saying he'd never had to wait so long. About 7 months later, I decided to give it another try. We were there over 2 hours (waiting to be seated, ordering, being told one menu item was unavailable 20 minutes after we ordered, waiting on our food). The food is ok, but the service is too slow and inattentive to bother going back. Don't waste your time.

Pros: Ok food

Cons: Slow Service, Food Mistakes, Unavailable Menu Item

Went twice, service was terrible both times. On both occasions, it was obvious that the wait staff (apparently one waitress with some part-time help from the bus boy) was over-extended. We received very little attention (no coffee or water refills without asking, and even getting the waitress attention was nearly impossible). On the first occasion, the food was pretty good, but the service was slow and inattentive. On the second trip, I ordered an omelet with salmon. A few minutes after taking our order, the waitress informed me they had run out of salmon (in Seattle, in summer???). I had to request a menu, and then it took her several minutes to come back to take my order. My friends got their food several minutes later. When my food arrived, my friends had almost finished their meals, so I sent mine back. We wont be going back.

As a visitor, we saw the line-up and decided to try it. Once inside, a cook casually asked everyone if anyone was over 30. It was my 30th b'day that morning so I spoke up. Everyone congratulated me. Our server brought me a muffin w/ a candle in it. When we asked for the bill, it was au gratis! AWESOME. Also, best Eggs Benedict EVER!

The place is on capitol hill.
DON'T PLAN ON DRIVING! This is urban seattle, parking in this neigbourhood is always at a prime. As for the food, service, and ambience... It's very raw... There is an open kitchen, they listen to hip-hop, sometimes indie rock... the people are awesome. If you want a refill on your coffee, they are probably expecting you to ask for it. You'll probably have to wait for a seat.. but it's a small space, and quite frankly, there is a reason you have to wait. It's worth it.

I reccomend the biscuits and gravy.

Pros: The People, Great food, the atmosphere

Cons: wait time, a little pricey

I waited outside with all the other CapHill slackers. Why wait? This place is a dump. The food is incredibly bad, the service was nowhere to be found and I could not get over the fact that the staff seemed to spend all morning chatting in the kitchen.
I have walked by since my last try and people were still out front. Are these some sort of zombies from another planet? The worst meal-service in Seattle. Welcome to it.

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Bad food, Bad attitude, Worst service

all the seattle glitterati think this place is the best. it's not.
there's nothing glamourous about waiting 1/2 hour to an hour to get cold food.
bad with the coffee refills. it took us an hour to get our food after we sat down because the cook was busy making small talk with the waitress and talking on the phone while the orders piled up.
there are much better places, they just don't have a ton of skinny, pale kids with bedhead standing out front.
way overpriced. AND NO COFFEE REFILLS!!!!! we were there almost 2 hours and only got one cup each.

Cons: , cold food, excrutiating wait

Tried Glo's for the first time today and loved it. Waited 15 minutes to be seated in this tiny diner. Service was a little slow, but friendly. Wonderful Eggs Benedict and my friend had the Eggs Californian. He said they were the best eggs he'd ever had! Hollandaise sauce is light and lemony. I'll definitely go back to this place!

Pros: Food, Food, Coffee

Yes it's true that there is a wait to dine here, but I can assure you that it is worth it. I suggest grabbing a coffee and sit outside or across the street at Starbucks. Our waittress was a sweet woman who keep our coffee cups full. I absolutely loved the pumpkin pancakes (I think they are seasonal), and my friend loved the vegetable frittata. I highly recommend it.

Yes it's busy. But you can call and get your name on the list to minimize the wait. Every item on the menu is simply top notch. Every meal"made to order" It's worth the wait. And if anyone thinks they make a better Eggs Benedict...I say think again

The Eggs Benedict are much better here than any other place on your list. The sauce is freshly made and all the ingredients are always fresh. All the other foods on their menu are all fresh and the best around.

Don't let the ridiculously long wait for a table scare you off. The place is awesome. Grab a latte at the adjacent Starbucks after you put your name on the waiting list.

It's family there at Glo's! Drink as much coffee as you like, and be prepared to WAIT: wait to be seated and wait for your meal; however, you'll never be disappointed! Not the most comfortable chairs but COZY still describes it all. SCHMOOZE and make friends with the owner/chef!!!

It's not a greasy spoon, but if you need to grab breakfast on a Sunday to get rid of the pounding from a Saturday night of drinking and dancing, this is the place.
Usually packed, but the wait is worth it. The service is fabulous and you don't have to wait to be seated to appreciate it. The hostess will bring you a cup of coffee in line and then you can just watch the world go by. Before you know it you're sitting and smelling the eggs Benedict wafting from the kitchen. Usually a special fritatta to tempt you, and more of that great coffee.
By the time you leave, you're ready to face the day!

I love Glo's for their pancakes and hashbrowns. I'm always hoping for pumpkin pancakes, even if they aren't seasonal, but I adore the lemon poppyseed as well. It's a small place, so go early on the weekends. Great for people watching.

I love the staff here--they are all very friendly and work together as a team. My dad is one of the pickiest guys i know when it comes to breakfast joints and HE even loves this place! This is one of the best places to have a wholesome breakfast. Its the only place I love the fruit bowl (blueberries, strawberries, kiwi...no melon!) and the Eggs Blackstone is fabulous...the whole menu is good! If you are in a hurry don't bother, this stuff is all cooked the old fashioned way when you order and this tiny restaurant has a wait! (but you can call and order to go) So grab a cup of coffee, put your name on the list and enjoy your lazy Sunday morning! Its DEFINITLY worth the wait!
