Caffe Minnies is open 24 hours, but I've only tried it at either very late after the clubs and bars close, or very very early in the morning (e.g. around 5 am).

I asked the late night front desk person in the Westin downtown sometime around 3:30 4:00 am where I could grab a good breakfast, and she mentioned this place.

Minnies has sort of a "street" / bohemian personality with lots of character and more than a few characters for staff and customers, but as an ex-musician it was right up my alley, .. the kind of place that is perfect to have breakfast after a gig at 3:30 in the morning.

All the free papers to read (Seattle weeklies) while you wait for your breakfast, excellent people-watching, my waitress was really kind and helpful, and the food was great.

I'm not a "hair-of-the-dog" type person, but if you're either trying to avoid, postpone, or recover from a hangover, this would be one good place to do it.

The mens john was a blizzard of grafitti, but clean.

Caffe Minnies and the 5-Point Cafe are two places any nightowl or adventurous soul would not want to miss.

(We used to have the Oasis/Last American Diner in Boulder which was very similar, but it closed, so I really enjoyed Minnies)

Favorite Dish: I had the "Frank Sinatra" omelet. Really delicious, with italian sausage, garlic & mushrooms & gawd knows what else, but it was tasty.

I managed to abstain from the bloody marys, but they probably make a decent one here.

Coffee (as expected) was really good also.

Cheap too.
