After Suddenly Closing in 2021, Seattle’s Most Hallowed Breakfast Sanctuary Has Reopened

Beth's is back and so is the Bypass, a 12-egg omelet with bacon, breakfast sausage, diced ham, and a double serving of both Swiss and American cheese. Meg van Huygen



Excellent choice.

Norm's at N 36th and Dayton is also back 7 days a week 8am-3pm as well.


But is the jukebox still there? Possibly the best jukebox in town.


Learning about Beth's re-opening yesterday made me genuinely happy in a way I haven't been in a long time. It speaks to how horribly shitty the last few years have been that a greasy spoon diner coming back from the dead means this much to me.

Viva Beth's indeed!


There is a lot of grit, determination, effort, money, hard work and hope in this venture to revive Beth's.

My concern is will it survive in the inhospitable landscape that Seattle has become to small businesses -- high regulatory, labor costs, now inflation, a looming recession, and a crime riddled, broken city.

There was a time when a business could enjoy a safe, stable supportive city.... Eggs etc on Broadway, Glo's, The Dog House...Mike still has his place up in Madronna (Hi Spot - thank God) for those who can recall a more civilized age in this city, before the dark times.


Looking forward to a visit soon. I worked graveyard back in the late 70s and early 80s. I stopped by after work on my way home many times. Loved the corn beef hash and eggs. Took my softball team there one time and a teammate ate an entire omelette and a side of pancakes. Some great memories. Wishing you much succes. Welcome back baby!!
