For about five years I ate breakfast at 13 Coins almost every Saturday. It is a bone fide Seattle institution.
Historically it has been famous for many things including huge portions, huge number of choices, huge chairs to watch the open kitchen cooking, and huge waits during busy times. The food was outstanding and reasonably priced, all things considered.
Over the years it has changed hands. The portions have gone down a bit, as have the crowds. Nonetheless, the food is still good. I had lunch there, opting for a good Caesar and adding crab to it – yummy. My friend, Linda, had a frittata which is still huge and still tasty.
I still recommend it, especially if you want something in the middle of the night when nothing else is open. Visit them online at www.13Coins.com.
