Seattle Weekly's Description
There are no real surprises on the plate at West Seattle's all-American diner Chelan Café. But the Chelan's crew, uniformly dressed in blue logo T-shirts, is a skilled, vocal, dexterous, and politically incorrect assemblage of self-deprecating veterans and youngsters alike whose collective floor show tops that of most theater troupes. Furthermore, the Chelan's layout includes a connected bar, the Ebb Tide Room, which is open for every hour of the day when it's permissible to serve liquor (put another way, it's only closed 28 hours per week). In short, the Chelan Café is a full-service entertainment mecca, a hangdog's salt-rimmed dream.

If you only have two people sit at the counter. Their Cafe Vita coffee is a major plus too
