Glo’s review image


If you’ve ever been to a New York diner and have been looking for the same greasy-spoon happiness in Seattle, Glo’s is your spirit brunch animal. It’s crowded on the weekends and the decor couldn’t be farther from white marble and hanging pendant lamps, but you’re in for a damn good breakfast. Show up when they open (or endure the eternal line), get some giant pancakes or a loaded omelette, and no matter what, order a side of the perfect crispy-crunchy hash browns. Oh, and you’re going to want a square of the homemade sour cream coffeecake, even if you have to take it to-go.
