The opening of the retro-style Lost Lake Cafe & Lounge on Capitol Hill added another precious 24-hour option to our fair city, but more places are open 24/7 than you might think. For diner-dives, there’s Beth’s (Aurora), the 5 Point (near Seattle Center), and the Hurricane (Belltown-ish). Shinier diners: Lucky (Belltown) and the excellent Square Knot (Georgetown). Memo’s makes cheap, decent Mexican (U-District), and 13 Coins makes uncheap, okay “gourmet” with amazing chairs (on Boren off Denny). Do not miss the adorable, aeronautical-themed, actually retro Randy’s (near Boeing Field). And there’s always IHOP or Denny’s. (
