"Currently thinking about this awesome hamburger I had at The Lucky Diner in Belltown. This burger was huge and what made it super enjoyable was the bread choice. It actually soaked up all the juice and didn't fall apart or turn mushy and it was still soft👌🏻👌🏻 is it too early to eat a #🍔??" - seattle_bites

"I finally tried Ludi's and it did not disappoint. It looks a bit suspect on the outside but inside it's bustling, smells delish and is very tidy 😉 This Filipino style porkchop breakfast with yummy garlic rice hit the spot. I loved the vinegar dipping sauce, it was so flavorful. I highly recommend a visit if you are looking for solid diner food Downtown 😋😋😋 Also thanks to @docta_foodji for going on this foodie adventure with me!" - seattle_bites

"Yesterday morning I had some free time and decided to take a walk towards the Seattle Center and Space Needle. On the way, I came across The 5 Point Cafe, an institution of sorts here in Seattle just off Denny Way. Open 24 hours, the spot have happy hours in the morning and evening and is a classic spot for that late night 4th meal after a night out of town. Of course, I decided to have breakfast! This is a picture of The Mess, hash browns w/ onions, green peppers, sliced jalapeños, cheese, bacon and two eggs anyway you want it (my go to is over-easy). Coffee and Baileys to wash it all down. #Seattle #PNW #foodie #foodstagram #instafood #foodbloger #eats #breakfast #yum #food #travel #206 #Obalicious" - obaliciouspnw
