Remember the good old
days nights in Capitol Hill?
When Ernie Steele's and the Green Cat's greasy spoons served up burgers and omelets (and beers!) into the wee morning hours?
Well, it's time to fight back against gentrification.
Lost Lake is the new project from David Meinert of the Five Points Cafe and Jason Lajeuness of Neumos. Open 24 hours a day, this 10th Avenue hash house serves up unpretentious, delicious food.
Breakfast is served all day. Our picks include the boozy French toast made with Frangelico, Grand Marnier, Bailey’s and Kahlua and the biggest chicken-fried steak in Seattle.
The rest of the menu is powerful stuff as well: fried Beecher's cheese curds are a heart stopping appetizer, and the hot sandwiches are authentic Philly style.
Desserts? Pie by the slice, sourced from Bunny's Baked Goods. If you still have room.
Happy Hour (Mon-Fri from 4-6p) delivers on a promise of insanely cheap eats and drinks. Paying two and a half bucks for a hamburger and fries this good is ridiculous.
So stay up as late as you want tonight, then sleep in as late as you want tomorrow. Either way, breakfast will be waiting.
