About This Deal

If it's 4am and you can't decide whether you have a hankering for an omelet, waffle, 11 oz. Chicken Fried Steak, custom-built burger, Reuben, slice of pie or pound of tater tots (with or without chili and cheese on top), there is only one destination for you: The 5 Point Cafe & Bar in Belltown. Coincidentally, the same applies if it's 4 in the afternoon, too. The full menu of breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert diner favorites is served 24 hours a day, every day. Stiff drinks are also poured from 6am to 2am daily to satisfy adult beverage thirsts. Today's deal gets you $20 worth of whatever your heart desires from the kitchen and bar any time of the day or night for only $10.

Originally opened in 1929 by husband and wife duo, C. Preston & Frances Smith, The 5 Point is the longest-running family eatery in Seattle and also the oldest bar in Belltown. Its reputation has spread far and wide as one of the world's best diners and dive bars. The eats are hearty, inexpensive and unpretentious. The cocktail lounge serves up stiff drinks and raucous conversation. The grand tradition of the Smith family is kept alive by the same long-term employees, great homemade food at good prices, Seattle's best jukebox and the famous periscope installed in the men's room which captures a clear view of the Space Needle - referenced in almost every single guidebook on Seattle.

While honoring the aim of the original owners, David Meinert and his girlfriend, Mandy Park (herself a former employee of Dick Smith), also infuse a few fresh twists on the well-established precedent. Who would argue with the inclusion of some new menu items like crab cakes, smoked salmon, capicola ham, pork carnitas, Cuban sandwiches, Jucy Lucy burgers, Poutine and home-made pie? Clearly not anyone who belongs in a booth or on a bench at The 5 Point. Fear not, the Chicken Fried Steak will continue to weigh in at 11 ounces ("the biggest in Seattle") - you just can't improve on perfection.
